We provide our face-to-face and online participants with a unique set of tools designed to enrich and deepen data analysis.
Causal Analysis Cards
The intent of the Causal Analysis Cards is to collaboratively explore potential reasons or causes of current student learning problems using findings from research and best practice. Each card contains a finding or statement based on a synthesis of the research and best practice about what has been shown to be effective in a variety of educational settings.
Each Causal Analysis Card Activity Set contains 30 to 40 cards, an activity descriptor, graphic organizers and a bibliography of selected resources.
In this video, a team of teachers identify two possible causes of their grade-level student learning problem after consulting Using Data Solutions Cause Cards and collecting additional data to verify their assumptions.
