What is RtI?

Response to Intervention (RtI) is a three-tiered intervention model in which a problem solving team:

  • determines the student's learning discrepancy
  • offers interventions to eliminate the discrepancy
  • uses progress monitoring, a scientifically based practice to analyze the student's academic performance and evaluate the success of the intervention
  • moves the child into an increasingly intensive learning environment, if necessary

RtI success is predicated on access to a variety of assessment data including:

  • screenings to identify at-risk students
  • prescriptive/diagnostic assessments to discover what standards are not being met
  • progress monitoring to ascertain if interventions are working
  • outcome assessment to measure student progress against grade level expectations

What is Progress Monitoring?

Progress monitoring is achieved through the use of Curriculum-based Measurement (CBM) and testing probes which monitor the effectiveness of an intervention. Over twenty-five years of research has demonstrated that CBM is a valid and reliable standardized testing practice for progress monitoring that is sensitive to the effects of intervention in short periods of time.

How do we manage all the data?

With Response to Intervention, educators have to manage a significant amount of data. Thus, having to analyze so much data begs the question, "How can teachers do this in a way that is accurate, efficient, timely, and accountable?" The answer is by using Web-based formative assessment and data management tools that inform teaching and learning by providing continuous student performance data to parents, teachers, and administrators thereby enabling evidence-based evaluation and data-driven instruction.
