Using the Results-Based Coaching Tool to Measure the Impact of Coaching Cycles

With thousands of school systems employing coaches, it’s critical that we develop systems for measuring the impact that is being made. The Results-Based Coaching Tool (RBCT) provides a thorough and uniform way to document teacher and student learning from the work done in a coaching cycle.

Annotated Results-Based Coaching Tool
The following annotated version of the RBCT is helpful for those who are just getting used to using the tool. Please note that a coach can engage with more than one teacher in a coaching cycle. For group cycles, each teacher would be included on a separate RBCT.

In Closing
While it can take some time for coaches to develop their fluency and comfort when it comes to using the RBCT, we hope you find that measuring the impact of coaching cycles is a process that provides greater clarity and celebrations around both the teacher and student learning that occurs during coaching cycles.

For more support, you can check out our podcast episode, where a coach shares her experiences and tips for using the tool. If you’d like a template of the RBCT and some aligned coaching logs, they can be found in this blog post. Learn more about measuring impact with the RBCT in the Google Suite.
