thinkSRSD’s Data

While research studies have shown great gains, thinkSRSD focuses on the next step into the messy, exciting, infinitely complex world of full school change.  Data below is from thinkSRSD’s partner schools, achieved following support from thinkSRSD’s team. As Robert Slavin cautions, if we want to see gains from research come alive in our schools, it is critical to follow the same implementation steps. We are happy to share the steps these schools took.

Over 25 Schools & Districts Climbing High!

Every year, schools partnering with thinkSRSD who take equivalent assessments as prior year see astonishing gains. We collect this data from as many of our schools as we can.

Bottom tier schools rise to top tier. Schools rise over 350 levels in state rankings. Both students and teachers transform.

When adopting a new initiative, we can’t encourage you enough to look at data, not just on the program, but from schools working with your PD provider. Below is thinkSRSD’s exclusive data from those schools that have tracked their data after partnering with thinkSRSD.

Complete School Turn Around

These schools saw gains that helped them hit their highest scores ever, and many rose to the top of their state after partnering with thinkSRSD.

Listen to our video testimonials on how joyful writing became in these schools as well at thinkSRSD’s Youtube channel.
