Using PDSA to Improve Student Achievement

Abstract: Curtis Elementary School, part of the Weatherford Independent School District in Weatherford, TX, has found the plan-do-study-act (PDSA) process to be a great way for students to become directly involved with their learning process, empowering them to take charge of their learning. This process has helped to engage students in a way that has transformed their thought processes. Through PDSA, students have become more intrinsically motivated rather than extrinsically motivated, and students and teachers have become partners in education. Curtis Elementary teachers have worked with students to improve key learning processes and improve learning results by using the PDSA process.
