The Plan, Do, Study, Act Process is central to the improvement of instructional routines. Watch one of the Better Math Teaching Network members in real time and in a real classroom setting introduce the Plan, Do, Study, Act, or PDSA, process.

The Plan-Do-Study-Act-Process

Better Math Teaching Network teacher Amanda conducts her Plan Do Study Act (PDSA) testing in the classroom. PDSA testing is a quick-cycle improvement method where teachers can test and refine strategies within and across lessons, realizing improvements every few weeks. In her PDSA testing, Amanda wanted to see students making more connections between math concepts and deepening their understanding of the math.
