Description: The use of student assessment data for decision making is a key high leverage practice because it helps guide teachers and other professionals to analyze instructional practices and make necessary adjustments that improve student outcomes. Collecting data in isolation, without using that data to make instructional decisions about student programs, is not a good use of a teacher’s time. Researchers have demonstrated that when teachers utilize data to make instructional decisions, student...

Description: Explicit instruction is a critical high-leverage practice because many researchers and practitioners understand its essential role in delivering high quality instruction across the grade levels and content areas to students with and without disabilities. Core elements of explicit instruction (see guide below) are present throughout many other HLPs, and should be present in every teacher’s daily instructional repertoire. Based on the HLP resources (High-Leverage Practices in Special...
Description: A hallmark of students with disabilities is they struggle to successfully learn content within the general education curriculum at the same rate and with the same success as peers without disabilities. All IEPs contain a section to record needed adaptations (which can be broken down into accommodations and modifications) to help the student bridge the gap between their current functioning level and the level needed to succeed within the stated curriculum. Teachers who are strategic about...
