The National Center on Response to Intervention (NCRTI) has developed this resource that provides a definition of RTI, reviews essential RTI components, and responds to frequently asked questions.
This document lays out four essential components of RTI:
• A school-wide, multi-level instructional and behavioral system for preventing school failure;
• Progress Monitoring; and
• Data-based decision making for instruction, movement within the multi-level system, and disability identification (in accordance with state law).
The information presented is intended to provide educators with guidance for RTI implementation that reflects research and evidence-based practices, and supports the implementation of a comprehensive RTI framework. We hope that this brief is useful to your RTI planning, and we encourage you to contact us with additional questions you may have regarding effective implementation of RTI.
As a supplemental resource to the Essential Components document, we created this “RTI placemat” as an at-a-glance resource.
