Decision Making


The focus of this course is how to use progress monitoring data to inform decision-making. This course is designed for teachers, staff, and administrators of K-12 schools, as well as ESC staff; however, all learners are welcome.

After engaging in this course, learners should be able to do the following: 

  • Explain how decision rules, considering level, trend, and variability, can be used to determine whether a student is responding to intervention. 
  • Interpret and handle variable data from curriculum-based measurements. 
  • Generate a hypothesis based on collected data to identify instructional changes to increase the effectiveness of intervention. 
  • Explain various ways intervention can be intensified.
