Prediction allows dialogue participants to share the frame of reference through which they view the world and lays the foundation for collaborative inquiry. </p><p> The steps include:</p><p>Clarify the questions that can be answered by the dataMake predictions about dataIdentify assumptions behind each predictionPrediction Sentence Starters:I predict . . .I expect to see . . .I anticipate . . .</p><p>Assumption Questions:Why did I make that prediction?What is the thinking behind my prediction?What do I know that leads me to make that prediction?What experiences do I have that are consistent with my prediction?</p></li><li><p>Step One (Chart Paper) (Data Driven Dialogue) PredictionsAssumptions</p></li><li><p>Step One: Predict Hints(Data Driven Dialogue)Predictions may go fairly quickly at this point because staff members have already seen some of the dataDevelop assumptions concurrentlyGroups do not need to agree upon theseGive groups a mostly blank data table to help with predictions (so they have some idea of what data they are predicting)</p></li><li><p>1000OverallGrade 4Grade 5BoysGirlsFRLNonFRLELLnonELLIEPnonIEPTCAP Growth Percentile</p></li><li><p>Step Two: Explore (Data Driven Dialogue)</p><p>The purpose: Generate priority observations or fact statements about the data that reflect the best thinking of the group.</p><p>The steps include:</p><p>Interact with the data (highlighting, creating graphical representations, reorganizing)Look for patterns, trends, things that pop outBrainstorm a list of facts (observations)Prioritize observationsTurn observations into priority performance challenges</p><p>Avoid: Statements that use the word because or that attempt to identify the causes of data trends.</p><p>Sentence starters:It appears . . . I see that . . . It seems . . .The data shows . . .</p></li><li><p>Step 2: Explore - Hints (Data Driven Dialogue)It is very important to take the time to really explore the dataremind people to not jump to because or action steps and to really look at what the data is telling themGive people one piece of data at a timeRefine Observations:In math 58% of 5th graders were proficient or advanced compared to 52% of 4th graders.The ELL population increased from 10% last year to 30% this year.</p></li><li><p>UIP - Section III:Analyze Trends in the Data and Identify Performance Challenges</p><p>After completion with staff of Data Driven Dialogue steps for Predict and Explore to</p><p>Identify areas of strengthIdentify areas of needPrioritize needs</p><p>the first two columns (trends and priority performance challenges) of the data analysis worksheet on p. 6 can be filled out</p></li><li><p>How good is good enough?State Performance Indicators:School and District Performance FrameworksState expectations defined for each performance indicator</p><p>Federal Performance Indicators:</p></li><li><p>Trends and Priority Performance ChallengesTrends must include at least 3 years of data.</p><p>Priority Performance Challenges must be identified for every performance indicator for which school performance did not meet state or federal expectations:AchievementGrowthGrowth GapsPost Secondary/Workforce Readiness</p></li><li><p>Trends and Priority Performance ChallengesRead p. 4-5 of UIP School Quality Criteria </p><p>Put where you have questionsDiscuss with partnerwhat surprises you?</p></li><li><p>Step Three: Explain (Data Driven Dialogue)The Purpose: Generate theories of causation, keeping multiple voices in the dialogue. Deepen thinking to get to the best explanations and identify additional data to use to validate the best theories. </p><p>The steps include:Generate questions about observations Brainstorm explanationsCategorize/classify brainstormed explanationsNarrow (based on criteria)PrioritizeGet to root causesValidate with other data</p><p>Guiding Questions:What explains our observations about out data? What might have caused the patterns we see in the data?Is this our best thinking? How can we narrow our explanations?What additional data sources will we explore to validate our explanation?</p></li><li><p>Step 3: Explain Hints (Data Driven Dialogue)</p><p>Help groups stay open to multiple interpretations of whydevelop multiple theories of causation</p><p>Separate the generation of theories of causation from theories of action (do not go to action steps in this step)</p></li><li><p>UIP Section III, Step 4 Root Cause Analysis</p><p>A cause is a root cause if:The problem would not have occurred if the cause had not been presentThe problem will not reoccur if the cause is dissolvedCorrection of the cause will not lead to the same or similar problems***the school should have control over the root cause</p></li><li><p>Steps in Root Cause AnalysisGenerating explanations (brainstorm)Categorize/classify explanationsNarrow (eliminate explanations over which you have no control)PrioritizeGet to root causeValidate with other data</p></li><li><p>Non-examples of Root CauseStudent attributes (poverty level)Student motivation</p><p>Brainstorm a few ideas with your table team of explanations that might appear to be root causes but dont qualify</p></li><li><p>Root Cause ExamplesThe school does not provide additional support/interventions for students performing at the unsatisfactory level Lack of clear expectations for tier 1 instruction in math.Lack of intervention tools and strategies for math. Limited English language development.Inconsistency in instruction in the area of language development.Low expectations for all subgroups. Low expectations for IEP students.</p></li><li><p>Five Whys (Explanation)Why?Because:</p><p>Why?Because:</p><p>Why?Because:4.

The critical steps include:Change observations/problem statements into goalsState the goals as SMART GoalsDetermine what will indicate that the problem has been solved or the goal(s) have been met.Identify strategies and action steps that will eliminate or correct the root cause(s) of the problemIdentify what data to track over time to determine if action steps are having the desired effect</p><p>CautionsMake sure that there is a direct causal link between the goal or solution and the action steps that are being taken. Clearly define what success looks like and measure it. Dont be afraid to change course if action steps are not having the desired effect.</p></li><li><p>Step 4 - Hints (Data Driven Dialogue)Action plan must be able to eliminate the root causeAction steps must be within the power of the group to implement (budget, capacity, etc.)Action plan should be a commitment to action by the group</p></li><li><p>UIP Section IV: Action PlanSchool Goals WorksheetNeed to set targets for every performance indicator where the school failed to meet state expectations.AchievementGrowthGrowth GapsPost Secondary/Workforce Readiness</p><p>Do NOT need to set targets for every line</p></li><li><p>UIP Section IV: Action PlanRead UIP Quality Criteria: Section IV (p. 6-9)</p><p>Code the Text:!
