Evaluation is a critical element of MTSS. A number of assessments are regularly administered, and the data are analyzed to help create plans for improved outcomes.
Each assessment needs a data coordinator to help districts and schools use all of them properly. Districts identify staff to go through specialized training to become a local expert for schools. Several assessments also require a data coordinator to access the assessment's related web-based apps.
