Math Action Research Team Kennedy High School
PDSA Cycle Plan – Do – Study – Act (PDSA) Cycle guides the continuous improvement process for the action research team.
Goal #1 for Math Team To improve all students proficiency in mathematics.
Plan – Define the System No Child Left Behind mandates that all students be proficient on the math concepts and estimation subtest of ITED by Based on analysis of ITED, students need more practice with standardized test-taking strategies; (multiple choice formatted questions).
Plan – Assess Current Situation
Analyze the results of the district trimester assessments. The type of questions in which students show non-proficiency:
Plan – Assess Current Situation Four year Math statistics:
Plan – Assess Current Situation Student satisfaction survey results:
Plan – Analyze Causes Improvement of test bank questions for district assessments Regular district mathematics meetings Math Skills classes Large class sizes Insufficient funding/resources
Plan – Analyze Causes Student absenteeism Many students struggle with reading Lack of time to work with the non-proficient students on an individual basis Lack of articulation between middle and high schools Leveling of students
Do – Try Out Improvement Theory Implementation of math skills classes for students scoring below the 40 th percentile on the math subtest Generating a database of multiple choice chapter test questions for math courses taught.
