If your intervention did have the result you expected – if student achievement did improve – you still have to decide what aspects of the intervention you will build into future practice.

Be realistic about what you can achieve. You need to be sure you could maintain the intervention you used in this process.

  • What aspects of the intervention will have the greatest impact?
  • What aspects of the intervention can you maintain over time?
  • What changes can you embed in school procedures?
  • Would there be any side-effects?
  • If you put time and effort into this change, will anything else suffer?

Even if things didn’t go exactly as you planned – if student achievement didn’t significantly improve – you probably learned some things that you could incorporate into future practice.

Once you identify the changes you could make to future practice, there are more questions to ask:

  • Do you have the expertise you need in-house or do you need external help?
  • What professional learning is needed? Who would most benefit from it?
  • What other resources do you need?
  • What disadvantages could there be?
  • When will you evaluate this change again?

Finally, look back over the whole process to see what you can learn from it.

  • Did you ask the right question in the first place? How useful was your question?
  • Did you select the right data? Could you have used other evidence?
  • Did the intervention work well? Could you have done anything differently?
  • Did you interpret the data-based information correctly?
  • How adequate were your evaluation data?
  • Did the outcome justify the effort you put into it?
