The diagnostic process not only confirms the wisdom of leaders that know when districts and schools are not performing up to expectations, but it also provides the process and training that help educators build a body of professional knowledge of what works well and what needs further research.
VitalInsight™ produced a type of data that I have never had the opportunity to use before. The data displayed a high level of sensitivity to differences among stakeholders, and the prescription activities generated were thoughtful options for improved practice. I’m very interested in using VitalInsight™ data for our strategic plan.
Vital Insight™ provides a framework to guide school leaders and teachers in discovering the real root causes of underperformance and to identify the remedies that will improve outcomes while avoiding the ‘silver bullets’ that fail to deliver on promises.
The diagnostic and prescriptive strategies cut through the political, cultural, and social traditions of failure that limit the effectiveness of most reform efforts.
