The Assessment Matrix for Classroom Instruction (AMCI) is an attempt to combine curriculum alignment, instructional strategies, data analysis, goal setting, and intervention into one package. It is a tool to help teachers determine their effectiveness in teaching to the state and district standards, and was designed to help teachers address questions of: (1) standards and benchmarks; (2) assessment information (3) data interpretation; (4) goals for student performance; (5) strategies for improving instruction; and (6) evaluation. The AMCI is divided into six columns, each of which addresses questions in one of the six areas. This document contains the teacher's guide, teacher trainer's guide, and materials for participants in AMCI training. (SLD)
