NSTTAC continues to partner to develop resources for state and local practitioners to improve the application of research in practice. As a compliment to the Predictor Implementation Self-Assessment tool, NSTTAC recently posted the Aligning Predictors and Practices resource at http://www.nsttac.org/sites/default/files/AlignEBPP_Resources_PSS_FINAL_2014.pdf. This resource is intended to assist leadership teams, as well as school and classroom level practitioners as they make the move from identifying a predictor as a focus area and articulate and implement an action plan at school and student service level.
