Ground rules created by students Classroom mission statements Classroom and student measurable goals Quality tools and PDSA used regularly The Continuous Improvement Classroom Classroom data centers Classroom meetings facilitated by students Student-led conferences Student data folders
What is PDSA? What I already know about PDSA What I want to learn about PDSA
ACT PLAN STUDY DO Plan Continuous Improvement Define the System Standardize Improvement Study the Results Assess Current Situation Try Out Improvement Theory Analyze Causes
PDSA; The Vehicle Professional Learning Communities Use To Implement Change
Process Steps… The Building Leadership Team writes a SMART Goal that is included in the School Improvement Plan (SIP) The Building Leadership Team writes a SMART Goal that is included in the School Improvement Plan (SIP) Then, the Action Research Team utilizes the PDSA process to work on the goal Then, the Action Research Team utilizes the PDSA process to work on the goal
So.. After reviewing vocabulary assessment data, teachers discuss options at a team meeting and use the PDSA process They define how they are currently teaching vocabulary (flowcharts) The team determines what other in-process measures they could use to see how students are doing in vocabulary and they collect data (run charts & pareto diagrams) to get baseline The team reviews the baseline data they collected and discuss root causes for the results they see (cause & effect diagrams & relations diagrams) Once root causes are identified, each member researches articles and best practices related to vocabulary instruction and submits the best to the group (improvement theory)
The team writes an action plan to carry out the improvement theory in their classrooms. Members practice newly-learned strategies (improvement theory), and measure the effectiveness of the strategies Members coach each other & may go into each others classroom to observe and provide feedback Members monitor student data to determine effectiveness of strategies (compare to baseline) Members reflect, observe, practice, receive feedback, gain expertise and standardize the new vocabulary instruction practice (new flowchart) Teams continue to use the PDSA cycle to make improvements in the realm of their professional learning community

More on In- Process Measures Assessment of learning Vs. assessment for learning –Rick Stiggins
From High Stakes Assessment to In-Process Measures Mistaken Belief: Its the adults who use assessment results to make the most important instructional decisions… Mistaken Belief: The most important decisions are made annually based on annual high-stakes tests
What Do Your In-Process Measures Look Like? Give some examples of in process measures? How would you use them in… –The Data Center –Student Data Folders –PDSA Efforts?
Plan Analyze Causes Lets figure out whats causing the problem
Analyze Causes Force Field Analysis Driving Forces We have good ideas Sometimes we remember Restraining Forces We get excited We have a lot to say We forget We dont like to wait
Plan Try Out Improvement Theory Do Lets try something different to improve the behavior
DO Try Out Improvement Theory IF we try hard to remember to raise our hands, and hang the run chart in a place we can all see to help us remember, THEN, we will remember to raise our hands before we speak instead of talking out.
Plan Study the Results Do Study Lets see how our theory worked. Did we make improvements?
Study the Results Run Chart- Data after trying out our theory
Plan Standardize Improvement Do Study Act Plan for Continuous Improvement If it worked, lets standardize our improvements.

Sharing How could you involve students in the PDSA process in your classroom? –What are the probletunities that students could help solve? –How could data folders and data centers help involve students in PDSA?
