ALIGNMENT FOR SUSTAINABILITY


Colaboratory II: "What Can be"TRIGGERING QUESTION:
“What are barriers to what “ought to be done” for all students to learn math?"

Some of the important data that emerged from the CoLaboratory focusing on the barriers are:


The Total Number of Barriers generated (N) = 63
  • The Total Number of Barriers receiving one or mote Votes (V) = 29
  • The Total Number of Distinct Connections in the Barriers Map (K) = 34
  • The Number of Barriers in the Map (R) = 15
  • The Divergence from a Total Agreement (D) = 41%
  • The Situational Complexity Index (SCI) = 3.75.

The total number of preference votes cast were equal to 80 votes. The total number of votes received by the 15 Barriers selected for Mapping is equal to 61 (76.3%). So more than 3/4 of the barriers voted by the participants as being of higher relative importance were mapped in Figure 2. The three most important barriers, namely # 57, 1, and 6, received 24 out of 80 votes (30%). Only Barrier #6 with 6 votes was a driver in the Root Cause Map.

The three barriers diagnosed as drivers in the Root Cause Map, namely # 44, 60, and 6. received only 12 votes out of 80 votes (15%).


Finally, the production of the Root Cause Map required the participants to answer 80 pairwise questions out of a total of 210 questions that they would have to answer if they did not use the CSII software. This means that they answered only 38.1% of questions, contributing to a saving of about 62% in terms of the time required to construct a Root Cause Map for the barriers identified.

The Root Cause Map is a snapshot of the Wall preventing the attainment of the ideal state for MIMI, as displayed graphically in the Design and Development Frame that has been adopted for this program.
