There is a growing body of evidence supporting the use of six practices described in the collective work of Moving Your Numbers, a technical assistance and dissemination initiative of the National Center on Educational Outcomes designed to identify and provide existence proofs of districts improving outcomes for all learners as part of district-wide improvement efforts. These practices, when used in an aligned and coherent manner, are associated with higher student achievement:

  2. Focus your goals;
  3. Select and implement shared instructional practices;
  4. Implement deeply;
  5. Monitor and provide feedback and support; and
  6. Inquire, learn, and build capacity (McNulty & Besser, 2011).

To establish a baseline level of implementation of each of these areas of practice for your district, work as a District Leadership Team (DLT) to complete the District Self-Assessment Guide for Moving Our Numbers. This tool, developed by the National Center on Educational Outcomes (NCEO), can be used periodically to spur discussion among team members and to gauge changes in implementation practices.
