Overview

Data decision-making is a foundational element of the Pyramid Model. 

State leadership teams use data decision-making when examining statewide implementation components and outcomes for local programs, practitioners, and children. 

Programs use data decision-making to examine their implementation of the Pyramid Model, practitioner implementation of Pyramid Model practices, and outcomes for families and children.

State Leadership Team Benchmarks of Quality

The State Benchmarks of Quality is used by a collaborative State Leadership Team (SLT) to assess progress and plan future actions so that Recommended Practices (RPs) (e.g., Pyramid Model practices) are available for providers and families statewide. The Benchmarks are grounded in the science of implementation which bridges the gap between an evidence-based practice (EBP) and the actual high-fidelity implementation of that practice.

Data Decision-Making and Program-Wide Implementation of the Pyramid Model

The Behavior Incident Report System (BIRS) provides early care and education programs and classrooms with a system to collect and analyze behavior incidents in their program. The system provides an efficient mechanism for gathering information on elements related to behavior incidents that can be used analytically to make decisions about providing supports to teachers and children within the program. Teachers within programs collect data on behavior incidents that are not developmentally normative or are a cause of concern to the teacher. These data are summarized monthly to provide formative data for examining factors related to behavior incidents (child, teacher, activity, behavior type, behavior motivation, and responses to the behavior). In addition, these data provide summative information on the frequency of behavior incidents over time and an analysis of potential equity issue by calculating disproportionality related to race, ethnicity, IEP status, gender, and dual language learners.

Webinar

A critical part to monitoring implementation of the Pyramid Model Framework is reviewing and action-planning around classroom implementation data. The Teaching Pyramid Observation Tool (TPOT) and Teaching Pyramid Infant-Toddler Observation Scale (TPITOS) provides practitioner coaches concrete information as to how teachers are implementing Pyramid practices in the classroom. After collecting this information coaches, with teachers can build personal action plans that meet the needs of the teacher and their specific classroom. The measure outlines the critical elements of Pyramid Model implementation, and it allows the coach and practitioner to discuss and plan for implementation of each level of the Pyramid. In this webinar, participants will learn about the features of the these fidelity measures, review instructions for administration, and discuss possible actions gleamed from the data.
