Data-Based Individualization and Student Early Writing Achievement

This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 1,3
  • Skill Level: Intermediate
  • Session 4: Assessment and Intervention in an RTI Framework

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. identify whether the overall student outcome data shows progress in the area of written expression.
  2. identify which factors (e.g., disability category, SES) better predicted student early writing outcomes.
  3. describe the purpose and components of the Early Writing Project.


This poster will present student outcome data for Years 1 and 2 of The Early Writing Project (EWP). Data will include pre- and posttest outcome measures. Overall, these outcome measures will show how the implementation of data-based individualization (DBI) improved student outcomes on early writing skills. More specifically, the data will be analyzed to better understand how the implementation of DBI-EWP affects certain subgroups of students’ early writing skills.
