This tools chart reflects the results of the fourth annual review of screening tools by the Center's Technical Review Committee (TRC).
- Across the top of the chart are the standards by which the TRC reviews each tool. Click on each standard for a detailed description of how the rating was defined.
- The vendors/developers of the tools have provided implementation information which includes the cost of the tool, what is needed to implement it, the support provided, how the tool is intended to be used, and with whom it should be used. To access this information, click on name of the tool in the "Area" column.

- Every column of the chart can be sorted by clicking the arrows at the top of the column.
- The tools 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."

The National Center on RTI publishes this chart to assist educators and families in becoming informed consumers who can select screening tools that best meet their individual needs.
The Center's Technical Review Committee (TRC) on Screening independently established a set of criteria for evaluating the scientific rigor of screening tools. The TRC rated each submitted tool against these criteria but did not compare it to other tools on the chart. The presence of a particular tool on the chart does not constitute endorsement and should not be viewed as a recommendation from either the TRC on Screening or the National Center on RTI. Please note that all submissions to the TRC review process were voluntary.
