This tools chart reflects the results of the third annual review of research studies of Instructional Programs by the Center's Technical Review Committee (TRC).
- Across the top of the chart are the standards by which the TRC reviews each program study. Click on each standard for a detailed description of how the rating was defined.
- The vendors/developers of the program have provided implementation information which includes the cost of the program, what is needed to implement it, the support provided, how the program is intended to be used, and with whom it should be used. To access this information, click on name of the program in the "Program" column.
- The ratings in the chart can be clicked on to view the specific data submitted for Participants, Design, Fidelity of Implementation, Measures, and Effect Size.
- Every column of the chart can be sorted by clicking the arrows at the top of the column.
- The programs in the chart can be filtered by subject and by grade using the filter tool at the top of the chart. To see all tools again, hit "Reset."
- Programs and studies can be compared by clicking the boxes on the far right of the chart. Pick as many studies as you wish to compare and hit the "Compare" button. To see all programs/studies again, hit "Reset."
The National Center on RTI publishes this chart to assist educators and families in becoming informed consumers who can select instructional intervention programs that best meet their individual needs.
The Center's Technical Review Committee (TRC) on Instructional Intervention independently established a set of criteria for evaluating the scientific rigor of studies demonstrating the efficacy of instructional intervention programs. The TRC rated each submitted study against these criteria but did not compare it to other studies on the chart. The presence of a particular program on the chart does not constitute endorsement and should not be viewed as a recommendation from either the TRC on Instructional Intervention or the National Center on RTI.
Please note that all submissions to the TRC review process were voluntary. An individual, firm, or other vendor whose program appears on the chart chose to submit its program for TRC review and then to have its program and TRC ratings displayed on the chart. The National Center on RTI does not publish the names of individuals, firms, or other vendors who submit programs for review but decide against having the results included on the chart.
