Prevention to Intervention
Collecting meaningful data impacts teaching as it provides leading indicators of learning.
- It happens in the moment, during instruction.
- It allows change on the spot, so the teacher can be proactive.
- The model becomes a preventative measure instead of being reactive.

Rapid Formative Assessment
Integrating a short-cycle formative assessment during a lesson provides feedback to teachers. The teacher can use that information to provide feedback to their students to help make decisions. These in-the-moment assessments provide immediate feedback during the process of learning. When these types of rapid formative assessments are woven into classroom activities, there is a 70–80% increase in the speed of student learning.
For this to happen, there are some criteria for the feedback. The feedback must
- be clear and purposeful,
- be directed at the right level,
- occur as the students are learning, and
- provide information to students on how to redirect their thinking and why.
When instruction and assessment become linked and assessments are used in a more authentic manner, the feedback will impact the classroom and unlock the learning potential for every student.
