The Spring Math Team

Dr. Amanda VanDerHayden of Spring Math

Dr. Amanda VanDerHeyden

For over 20 years, Amanda has been helping schools use data to become more effective by building, refining, and studying widely-used tactics, including:

- Can’t Do/Won’t Do assessment
- Academic screening measures
- RtI decision models to guide allocation of instructional resources
- Classwide math intervention

After a career as a district leader and faculty member at LSU and UCSB, Amanda started her own consulting business and has given keynote addresses to state departments of education and school psychology organizations in 28 states. She has also directed and evaluated schoolwide improvement efforts with strong results on student learning.

During Amanda’s career, technology has become the new frontier of education. Amanda built Intervention Adviser and now Spring Math, bringing together all that she has learned about effective system improvement in schools: accurate and efficient assessment as a gateway to instructional enhancement, high-yield intervention delivery, and managing system change in schools to help teachers help more children experience mathematics success.

She is actively involved in the ongoing development and enhancement of Spring Math, and considers it the most meaningful—and fun—work of her life.  


Dr. Paul Muyskens

Paul has extensive experience in data-based decision making within an RtI framework and instructional intervention, as well as in leading software implementations to support these efforts. He is a published author on the topics of assessment, curriculum-based measurement, and systems-level frameworks for effective data-based instructional decision-making.

Paul has over 20 years of experience supporting school district efforts in Response to Intervention, as well as software development and implementation, having led Response to Intervention initiatives in the Minneapolis Public Schools prior to coming to Sourcewell Technology in 2012.
