What’s inside: In this episode, we’re excited to speak to two researchers in the field of intensified instruction and data-based decision making: Dr. Jessica Toste and Marissa Filderman, both from University of Texas at Austin. We’ll be talking about their article “Data-Based Decision Making in Reading Interventions: A Synthesis and Meta-analysis of the Effects for Struggling Readers” published in 2018 in the Journal of Special Education.
Classroom Implications: We chat about the importance of data-based decision making to track student progress and inform reading instruction.
