This study determined how the collection of student data could help a team of teachers learn more about their pupils and increase instructional efficacy. 121 students of 8th grade white house team at Spry Middle School in Webster, NY were selected to pilot this study. Student inventories measured 4MAT Thinking Styles, Learning Styles, Multiple Intelligences, and Interest. Student cumulative file information, eg. past years' grades and standardized test scores, was combined with the inventory results to form the Total Talent Portfolio, or TTP. The team then used this data to aid in classroom grouping. The teachers found that the TTP was a powerful tool for enhancing teacher familiarity with student strengths and needs.
