MMD/DCI districts use the Collaborative Work Implementation Survey (CWIS). The CWIS is a 24-item instrument that uses a five-point Likert scale. For three of the scales, the Likert values correspond to frequency, while for the other two, the values correspond to agreement. The survey is intended to measure the degree of implementation of desired processes and practices within participating districts. The scales were designed based upon theoretical knowledge about the most vital information passed from trainers to educators, and practical knowledge of the content of the learning packages delivered through professional coaching. Information about the CWIS content can be found in the MMD/DCI Blueprint. Districts are required to administer this survey instrument each spring during the administration window, but may administer it at other times during the year if they desire. Information about CWIS access and the windows for administration are sent to districts from DESE.
CWIS results can be accessed here on the CWIS Reports tool, an online portal that houses the CWIS reports. Access to these data is crucial in planning for effective professional development. The reports help districts plan professional development, identify district- and building-wide priorities, set goals, support targeted training and coaching, and track instructional staff growth of knowledge and skills over time. Using CWIS data, District Leadership Teams can work with CST facilitators to identify and monitor district-wide goals.
