Consider the evidence: An example of the evidence-driven decision making cycle – text version

This example is a circular flow chart starting with a box named Trigger and continuing clockwise with boxes connected by one or more arrows to the final box named Reflect.

The boxes in order are: Trigger, Hunch, Explore data, Question, Assemble more data & other evidence, Analyse, Analyse, Interpret information, Intervene, Act, Evaluate, Reflect.

Clockwise – Trigger points to Hunch then to Explore data which points to Question which points to both Assemble and Analyse (NQF/NCEA results).

Assemble points to Analyse non NGF/NCEA data.

Both Analyse boxes point to Interpret information then to Intervene to Evaluate, and finally to Reflect.

There is also an extra long double-headed arrow connecting Analyse to Reflect.

Text for each box:

Trigger: A significant number of our students not achieving well in writing,

Hunch: A teacher has a hunch – poor writers might spend little time on homework,

Explore data: A survey of relevant students shows that this is only partially true,

Question: What are the characteristics of students who are poor at writing?

Analyse NQF/NCEA results by standard,

Analyse non NQF/NCEA data and evidence,

Interpret information: Poor writers likely to play sport, speak well, read less, do little homework,

Intervene: create multiple opportunities for writing: include topics test can use sport as context; connect speaking and writing. PD for staff.

Evaluate: Has writing improved?

Reflect: How will we teach writing in the future?
