Closing-the-Gap Results Report
Closing-the-gap interventions are based on building data to target significant gaps in students' attendance, behavior, and/or achievement. This intervention should reach a large number of students. This type of intervention is different than small group interventions as it is based specifically on closing the gap in either attendance, behavior, and/or achievement. Use building EIS data to assist on making plan for closing the gap intervention.
The intervention itself could be provided in a variety of ways: Classroom lessons, small group, before or after-school classes, school-wide or grade level interventions, etc.
To document this program component you should show:
-A results report that is based on a building need and also reflects program compentencies and indicators. Include in this: target group, process, perception and results data.
-Process data: What you did, When you did it, Who you did it with, etc
-Perception data: How did students' attitudes, skills and/or knowledge change as a result of the intervention
-Results data: The measured change in the gap of students' attendance, behavior and/or achievement.
- Show how the gap was identified and why it was important to address (based on standards and indicators and/or counseling program goals).
- Provide any supporting/supplemental evidence related to this intervention.
WORK TO DO FOR BINDER
COMPLETE A CLOSING THE GAP RESULTS REPORT ONE PER COUNSELING PROGRAM.
(OBVIOUSLY THIS MEANS THAT YOU HAVE TO PLAN AND DELIVER A CLOSING THE GAP INTERVENTION. THIS IS DONE MOST EASILY BY USING A CLOSING THE GAP ACTION PLAN TO HELP YOU SET UP THE INTERVENTION
A SUMMARY OF THE DATA COLLECTED THAT SHOWS HOW STUDENTS ARE DIFFERENT BECAUSE OF THE CLOSING THE GAP INTERVENTION
IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO IMPLEMENT THE INTERVENTION, SUBMIT AN ACTION PLAN NARRATIVE THAT INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING:
NEED FOR INTERVENTION BASED ON DATA (USE EIS DATA TO ASSIST MAKING A DECISION)
PLAN FOR ADDRESSING NEED - IDENTIFY CURRICULUM/MATERIALS YOU PLAN TO USE
PROCESS DATA - HOW YOU WOULD DELIVER THE INTERVENTION - TIME, NUMBER OF STUDENTS, ETC
PERCEPTION AND RESULTS DATA - HOW WOULD YOU MEASURE THE OUTCOME OF THIS INTERVENTION - (HOW WOULD YOUR INTERVENTION IMPACT THE GAPS IN EIS DATA)
