WI Evaluation of the Effects of the Pyramid ModelResearch SummaryEvaluation/Data-Based Decision Making (BoQ #44-49), Implementation and Demonstration Programs/Sites (BoQ #32-35)Wisconsin Pyramid Model12/04/2019Download

In 2015, the Safe Schools Healthy Students Department of the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction contracted with researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater to consider whether or not the implementation of Pyramid Model practices was related to differences in teachers’ use of evidence-based practices in the classroom. Additionally, the evaluation considered whether or not the use of Pyramid Model practices was related to differences in students’ social and emotional behaviors as well as their early literacy skills. The results of this external evaluation demonstrated significantly more use of the evidence based practices in classrooms implementing as part of program wide implementation, as well as very significant gains (Fall to Spring) in social and emotional development and reduction of behavioral concerns for children who presented with the most concern in the Fall. Children with the greatest social and emotional concern in the Fall showed statistically significant effect in early comprehension skill than those students in the comparison classrooms. This evaluation has been instrumental in advocating for continued expansion of Wisconsin’s Pyramid Model efforts.

This tip sheet was developed by the Communication/PR workgroup, with input from the SLT to support families’ understanding of the Pyramid Model. It was developed in collaboration with iSocial, our state’s SPDG which is focused on improving social-emotional outcomes of infants, toddlers and young children with disabilities (birth to age 5) through the implementation of the evidence-based Pyramid Model Framework. The distribution plan is being developed and will include at a minimum participants in Positive Solutions for Families. It will also be used to introduce child care teachers and directors to Pyramid Model. Other potential recipients include State Legislators, Commissioners, State-level department heads, Family Resource Centers and implementation sites’ administration to build awareness and buy-in for Pyramid Model implementation.
