This resource provides a definition of RTI, reviews essential RTI components (screening, progress monitoring, the multi-level prevention system, and data-based decision making), and responds to frequently asked questions about implementing RTI. This document lays out four essential components of RTI: a school-wide, multi-level instructional and behavioral system for preventing school failure; screening; progress monitoring; and data-based decision making for instruction, movement within the multi-level system, and disability identification (in accordance with state law).
This document was developed to help parents and other family members understand the essential components of RTI (screening, progress monitoring, multi-level prevention system, and data-based decision making), ask questions about RTI, and understand how the RTI framework may be used to help their children succeed in school.
In this webinar, Dr. Allison Gandhi, provides an overview of the screening, progress monitoring, and instructional tools charts, describes the information that they provide, and walks through the process that teams can use when selecting an appropriate tool to support RTI implementation.
In this webinar, Dr. Russell Gersten provides an overview of the research related to RTI and mathematics and describes specific guidelines for implementation for grades K-7. The webinar includes discussions of effective instructional practices for interventions, strategies for screening and progress monitoring, and criteria to think about when selecting intervention curricula. The webinar also offers a candid appraisal of the quality and quantity of research on these topics.
This learning module focuses on developing a basic understanding of response to intervention (RTI) and the essential components of an RTI model. It provides the Centers definition of RTI and an overview of screening, progress monitoring, multi-level prevention system, and data-based decision making.
This learning module provides an overview of the multi-level prevention system within the Response to Intervention framework. It explains the relevant focus, instruction, settings, and assessments at each level of prevention and demonstrates how screening and progress monitoring are utilized for data-based decision making.
IES Practice Guide for Assisting Students Struggling with Mathematics: Response to Intervention (RtI) for Elementary and Middle Schools
This Practice Guide, released by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) in April 2009, aims to help educators develop and implement Response to Intervention (RTI) to assist students struggling in math. The focus is building an instructional program in order to improve outcomes for students who have difficulty with math. The guide presents recommendations about screening, instruction, and progress monitoring and indicates the quality of the research base that supports them. It includes common questions and potential concerns that might arise with each recommendation and suggestions to help alleviate those concerns. Technical details about the studies that were used to generate the recommendations are also presented.
