We encourage you try the measures and (forthcoming) routines and representations in your own organizational context and let us know what you learn and how you adapt them. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.

To access the measures, you will be asked to complete a short survey to let us know a bit about yourself and how you plan to use the measures. On completion of the survey, you will receive the measures you've requested. Read our White Paper for a description of the process by which we developed the measures of small-group and whole-class discussion. We ask that, in return for sharing the measures, you track any changes you make and tell us the rationale for these changes.  We will periodically follow up to learn about any changes, and will request that we can post the adapted measure(s) on our website.


Measure of small-group discussion

This measure takes the form of a short student survey that provides insight into the nature and quality of discussion during small group work. We have designed the survey to take students about 2-3 minutes to complete.


Measure of whole-class discussion

This measure takes the form of a short student survey that provides insight into the nature and quality of the whole-class discussion in a specific lesson. We have designed the survey to take students about 2-3 minutes to complete.


Measure of the rigor of the task prior to implementation [available soon]

This measure is in an earlier stage of development than the discussion measures. It takes the form of a short checklist that a coach or district leader could use to quickly assess the rigor of the tasks that a teacher has selected for a lesson. We see this measure as working in tandem with our measures assessing the quality of classroom discussion, as the quality of discussion depends on the rigor of the mathematical task(s) in a lesson (Stein, Grover, & Henningsen, 1996).
