Accurate Math Assessment: Informing Systemwide Support

As schools across the country implement a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) framework, an integration of data and instruction is necessary to support all students and ensure success. Specific to math, a schoolwide or districtwide system should include various components, such as different types of assessment for different purposes, multiple levels or tiers of support, and available resources. Accurate assessment data is necessary to examine the effectiveness of instruction at each tier of support. This informative presentation will describe how to utilize math assessment data within a data-based, decision-making framework to evaluate instruction from a systems-level perspective. 

Attendees will learn:

  • Why it’s important to conduct systems-level problem solving
  • How assessment fits into the MTSS framework
  • Ways to use math screening data to evaluate their system of support in math

We hope you’ll join us!

Courtney E. Wheeler, Ph.D., is a Research Associate at the Center for Applied Research and Educational Improvement (CAREI) at the University of Minnesota, where she provides technical assistance, training, and conducts research around the Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) framework. Since obtaining her doctorate from the University of Oregon in School Psychology in 2010, she’s been drawn to conducting research that will have practical implications for individual children and the larger system they are a part of. Through using data and evaluation, she believes we can advance educational equity and ensure all children have equal access to high-quality education. Dr. Wheeler is also the lead author of Acadience® Math (previously available under the name DIBELS® Math) and previously worked for Acadience Learning for over a decade as a Senior Research Scientist. In addition, Dr. Wheeler has served as a school psychologist in rural and urban school districts.
