Step 5: Examine Progress


After implementation occurs, LEAs and schools must determine whether the intervention(s) are meeting the originally identified needs of the school(s). In order to do this, tools which measure implementation fidelity must be utilized, progress monitoring data collected on student progress and outcome data must be analyzed and shared, and a plan for how knowledge about the intervention will be communicated must be in place. In addition, evidence collected must be used to determine if the intervention should continue as is, be modified, or be discontinued.

The consideration of “implementation fidelity” should include both how well the LEA and school improvement plan is being carried out as well as how the chosen interventions are being implemented with the students identified through the Early Warning System process.

The Student Success District/School Implementation Fidelity Rubric found below provides LEA/schools with a tool that can be utilized by the stakeholder team to determine the level of implementation fidelity. Furthermore, the team can use rating results to identify implementation successes, areas of opportunity, and to make implementation adjustments.  Click each image to access resource, presentation or full document.

Progress monitoring is conducted in order to monitor students’ response to the intervention that is being implemented. This section provides information about the purpose, process and essential components of progress monitoring.

In addition to the data that will be collected throughout the process of implementing both the selected interventions as well as the improvement process itself, there are also some state and federal reports that should be accessed periodically as the data found in these reports will provide valuable information and aide in informing action steps that may need to be added or adjusted.
