Finding the Cause: Workshop for Technical Assistance Providers
MACC's mission is to build the capacity of the mid-Atlantic state education agencies to develop statewide systems of differentiated technical assistance for schools and districts identified for improvement. In this session, MACC wanted to build a shared understanding, amongst TA providers, of the data and processes used to help states identify causes of problem and appropriate solutions.
I was asked to create and present a session that would enable the participants to:
- Recognize commonly used terminology and concepts associated with problem/cause analysis
- Identify tools and techniques used to identify the cause of the problem
- Create their own problem analysis tool
To do this we identified terminology, concepts, processes, tools, and techniques used to assess data and process in order to identify causes and solutions.
