CFIP Please open up the “In Class Links for CFIP Presentation” thread in the Discussion Board :-)
CFIP “A six-step process for increasing student achievement that is planned and carried out by teachers meeting in grade level, content, or vertical teams as a part of their regular lesson planning cycle.” mdk12.org
CFIP “What do we know from available data about current levels of student performance and how will we respond to these data?”
CFIP Why do researchers and practitioners advocate for the use of assessment data to guide instruction? Why do the authors describe the process of developing and implementing a system of common formative assessments as "engaging in authentic professional development?” What are the benefits and possible roadblocks for establishing PLCs (Professional Learning Communities)?

MSDE suggests 7 pre-conditions for successful implementation of CFIP. Does your school meet these pre-conditions? Would a struggling, urban school meet them??
CFIP 1. A cohesive and collaborative grade-level, departmental, or vertical team which shares common subject matter and common assessments, either developed by the state or school system or by the teachers of an individual school
CFIP 2. Common planning time for team members consisting, at a minimum, of one hour twice weekly, of which one hour every two weeks is devoted exclusively to the CFIP
CFIP 3. A principal who is a strong instructional leader and who is comfortable with the concept of shared leadership
CFIP 4. Norms to guide the team's process of collaborative data analysis
CFIP 5. Autonomy for the team to adjust teaching practices and interventions based on data from assessments of their students' learning
CFIP 6. Use of short-cycle, common, formative assessments by the team
CFIP 7. On-going professional development to enhance the team's capacity to continually adjust their teaching practice in response to student performance data
