The fishbone diagram guides teams to categorize potential hypotheses of practices during the data inquiry process. Used most often to keep teams from jumping to conclusions, the fishbone diagram helps them focus on actionable causes for the student outcomes identified as high priority for improvement planning. While there are many versions of fishbone diagrams used for education, this resource is based on the key system features of the Equitable Multi-Level System of Support (MLSS), which offers multiple lenses for considering potential root causes.
This fishbone diagram is a template structured with MLSS features creating the “ribs” along the fishbone, while the student outcome priority is listed at the head of the fish.
