Project DataWall: A Decision Support System

The Dole building on a sunny summer day with blue sky and clouds.

The goal of Project DataWall is to develop and pilot test a decision support system (DSS) in elementary schools. DataWall is a web-based application that integrates or links multiple data sources to help educators, school administrators, and technical assistance teams (a) identify organizational and student strengths and needs, (b) guide data-based problem solving, and (c) monitor progress related to MTSS implementation and support. By combining the DataWall system with specific meeting norms and a decision making protocol, our DSS holds promise to increase the fidelity of MTSS implementation and eventually enhance student outcomes.
