Tracking and reporting of student progress and the classroom implementation of PLD is central to the PLD process. For this reason, many schools, we are keen to support the process of introducing and effectively utilizing the PLD tracking sheets.

As you can imagine, many schools request this support. It is imperative that we receive school tracking sheets that have been sufficiently prepared along with clear instructions on what is being requested.
Below is a checklist, that we request that you have a look at before Diana spends time on your school tracking sheets.

Step 1: Provision of Clear Instructions: Have you added to your email request, details of what specifically you are seeking from Diana reviewing your school data? Information on how the school is progressing, and why the support is being requestsed. Is it is the current term's class profiling or the full-year results that you are seeking feedback on. 

Step 2: Check each classroom's results before sending it through to PLD and possibly refer the class teachers to a short video: Have the teachers purely added test scores to the spreadsheets, or have they engaged in the full process of establishing three targeted teaching groups for each year level and a classroom implementation plan? You will find the short (7-10 minute videos in STEP 4) for:
The Early Years (or Kindy/PreSchool):

The Foundation video:

The Year 1 and 2 video:

The Year 3-6 video:

The videos provide clear instructions on what is expected for each year level.

Step 3: Have the School Leaders and/or the Literacy Coordinator viewed this short FREE online course, Leading the implementation of PLD within your school community: Scroll down to locate the course. the associated manual has many examples of good and poor data entry.

It is common for school's to find that when they have progressed through Step 2 and Step 3, there is a reduced need for Diana Rigg to review the school data, or that some of the issues that were encountered will have been resolved from the information provided. 

Diana is very happy to reviewing school data, but on the condition that the above points have been adhered to.

Once ready, please email the link to the results to If the PLD office/or Diana open the spreadsheets and identifies that for example step 2 has not been attended to, she will return the spreadsheets, and request that the specific step has been completed. Once attended to, she will be happy to receive the tracking sheets
