Review & Reset Tool

This protocol enables a team to review student learning progress at the end of a sprint and set a future direction

Use this protocol to:

  • Discuss and interrogate the evidence of student learning progress

  • Explore what the team might do next, what you might need and what you have learned

  • Draw a sprint to a close and create momentum for the next steps

Steps

  • Prep

    Have a copy of questions printed and a space suitable for a group meeting. Each team member needs to bring evidence of student learning for students in the target group. Appropriate evidence might be visual artifacts, test data, or a longitudinal set of work samples.

Analyse

  • Step 1

    Walk through the team discussion norms (2 mins)

  • Step 2

    Sort the evidence (3 mins)
    Sort the evidence (3 min) Each teacher groups evidence of student learning into 2 groups: those that made the desired progress and those that did not make enough progress.

  • Step 3

    Review student progress (25 mins)

    Progress: Which students made the desired progress? How do we know? (5 min)
    - Each teacher presents evidence of student learning
    - If needed others can ask clarifying questions
    - Check for consensus on students in this category. If needed mark any borderline students with a post-it note.

    Option: What were the key teaching strategies, sequences, timings or resources that you felt made the difference? What is your evidence that these were the ‘active ingredients’ in your approach? (5 min)


    Not-there-yet: Which students did not make the desired progress? How do we know? (5 mins)
    - Each teacher presents evidence of student learning
    - If needed others can ask clarifying questions

    Why: Why might these students not be making enough progress? (5 mins)
    - Identify several reasons why this might be the case on post-it notes
    - Discuss and then group the top 3 reasons
    - What does this mean for your teacher practice? What actions might you take?

    Learn: What did we learn? (5 min)
    What did you learn about your students?
    About your own teaching practice?
    About the sprint team?

Transfer

  • Step 4

    How can we transfer what we’ve learned?

    - Which practices should we include in future teaching?
    - What aspects of the Sprint should we include in future programming?
    - What resources used in the Spring should we consider using again?

Reset

  • Step 5

    What Next? (5 min): Consider the 4 options as a team and select your preferred option. Discuss why your chose that option

    -Same group of students working on the same outcome
    - Different group of students working on the same outcome
    - Same students working on a different outcome
    - Different group of students working on a different outcome

    When will we meet to plan the next sprint? What additional data or resources you might need for your next sprint?
