Student outcome data for Years 1 and 2 of The Early Writing Project (EWP), a three-year IES funded project, will be presented. Data will include pre- and post- test outcome measures. These outcome measures will show how the implementation of data-based individualization (DBI) improved student outcomes on early writing skills. The data will be analyzed to better understand how the implementation of DBI-EWP affects certain subgroups of students’ early writing skills.
