Tableau and Response to Intervention


It has often been said that in Fairfield, we are data rich but information poor.  This means that we have student data on the right types of assessments, but that it is not always easy for teachers and building principals to access this student information. In a Response to Intervention (RTI) system, collective student achievement data must be easily accessible for teachers and administrators in order for them to respond in a timely manner to student needs. Tableau is a data viewing instrument that we are data rich but information poor.  This means that we have student data on the right types of assessments, but that it is not always easy for teachers and building principals to access this student information. 
In a Response to Intervention (RTI) system, collective student achievement data must be easily accessible for teachers and administrators in order for them to respond in a timely manner to student needs. 
Tableau is a data viewing instrument that allows teachers to access common benchmark assessments in real time in order for them to plan instruction and systemic intervention in a timely fashion. 
The K-8 administered Jerry L. Johns Basic Reading Inventory (BRI) and the K-8 District Math Inventories are two examples of data that will more accurately and effectively inform instruction for all students. 
Teachers will view the data from Tableau and then use the information to:  group students for instructionally sensitive instruction,  progress monitor growth, and collect data for identification of students who qualify for special programs. The purpose of an RTI system is to ensure that students at all levels are receiving the type of instruction and intervention that most suits their individual needs. FCSD is moving forward with entering student data into Tableau for teacher viewing.  Currently,  teachers cannot access Tableau but will be trained on it in the near future.
