The plan developed by the school community should clearly outline how progress on each goal will be monitored and evaluated. Many different possible indicators could be used depending on the nature of the goal and the type of progress the school wishes to focus on. Schools can use diverse indicators such as, surveys​ for student or parent feedback, information from classroom teachers and specialist teachers, student data and testing to name just a few. Using different types of indicators could allow schools to monitor progress in different ways.

Guiding Questions:

  • How ​do we assess a personalized education system?
  • Are we measuring progress across diverse student groups?
  • How and when will we know that there is improvement?
  • What will the impact of change be?
  • What evidence will indicate an adaptation in our plan is needed (ex. refine goal, strategies, objectives)?​


Key Concepts

  • Data – facts or information used for making decisions.
  • Evidence – the available body of facts or information indicating whether a belief or proposition is true or valid.
  • Qualitative Data – is typically descriptive data (what you can see, hear, feel). Qualitative research is useful for studies at the individual level, and to find out, in depth, the ways in which people think or feel (e.g. case studies).​
  • Quantitative Data – is information about quantities; that is, information that can be measured and written down with numbers.
