Describe your current knowledge level of
PDSA’s
1. Thumb Down – What is a PDSA?
 2. Thumb Sideways – Heard about it and
know the why, what and how.
 3. Thumb Up – I am ready to try it!

Pre-Test
Fad Diet
“An Event”
 Has short term loss
based on “quick” fix
 Everyone is doing it!
 Little effort for quick
results
 No change to lifestyle

Healthy Lifestyle
Change



Slower weight loss
but more permanent
Eating habits change
Has multiple layers
like diet, exercise,
new eating habits
DDD vs. PDSA
Knowing what my students need to know
and be able to do.
 Determining the critical learning
requirements:

◦
◦
◦
◦
Unpacking the standards
Manage the standards
Link assessment to the standards
Plan for aligned instruction
A Systems Approach
to Learning
Our job as teachers is to create the kind
of learning system in which all of our
students learn and demonstrate
proficiency in all content and program
areas – not just those tested annually by
the state.
 You can get the required results with a
regular and frequent improvement
process of planning, doing, studying and
acting

DDD vs. PDSA
Data Driven
Decision Making
Collect Data – AIMS,
DIBELS, Check Point
Charlie
 Analyze the Data
 Create ILP’s
 Anything Else??

PDSA
Plan for frequent cycles of
learning by setting short term
learning targets
 Doing by teachers and students
to ensure that everyone meets
the goal
 Study the results if the
strategies used in the learning
cycle
 Action plan and make
adjustments for the next cycle of
learning

Used for PDSA Cycles
Step 1 - Learning Requirements
Students can tell you what they will be able to do as a
result of being in this class.
What do they need to know to be proficient on the skills
in the Math Assessment?
Step 2 – Class Learning Goal
Example - By the end of the year, 100% of the students
will score 80% or better on the Check Point Charley
Assessment.
Getting Started

Step 3 – Chart and Analyze class
learning results
Create a bar graph for charting learning
results showing where the class is starting
compared to where if needs to be.
Establishing a Baseline

Step 4 – Class, Course or Program
Mission Statement
Ask students this: Why are we here?
What do have to do well together? How will
we make this happen?
Example “The mission of the members of
Room 442 is to work together to become
proficient in all the 4th grade math standards
so that we will be prepared for the future.”
Write this with input form the kids!

Step 5 Plan – Short Term Learning
Goals
Example - This week we will make sure all
sentences we write begin with a capital
letter and end with a period.
Communicate the learning
expectation at the start of each
learning PDSA cycle
Step 6 Do – Determine what the
students and teacher need to do to
ensure that everyone learns the
target; what high-yield strategies will
be used.
When the goals are learner
centered, schools are for
“learning” not for “teaching”
Teacher will do:
1. Model using
scientific notation
2. Give us several
examples
3. Let us work on
teams


1.
2.
Student will do:
Sort/classify numbers in
scientific notation with
those in standard
notation
Work as a team to
create a Frayer Model
for scientific notation.
Step 6 -What will we do to learn?

Step 7 – Study
Study the results of
the of the strategies
used for the
learning; what
helped us learn and
what changes
should we consider
in the next cycle.

Step 8 – Act
Make adjustments
for the next cycle of
learning
Continuous Improvement…there
is no finish line!
