The RTI Implementer Series Module 2: Progress Monitoring focuses on the essential components of an RTI framework with a particular focus on progress monitoring. The module covers basic information on progress monitoring and a multi-step process for selecting progress monitoring tools. Data-based decision making is embedded throughout the module with content focused on using progress monitoring data to evaluate and make decisions about instruction, to set goals, and to establish an effective progress monitoring system.
This training module describes the difference between RTI and traditional assessment for learning disabilities, the basics of RTI using a three-tier model, and instructional interventions within each tier. The module also discusses progress monitoring, the basics of curriculum based measurement (CBM), and using progress monitoring data to make decisions within an RTI framework.

TOT facilitators should have knowledge of the materials provided here, the Implementer Series training module materials (e.g., PowerPoints, training manuals, and handouts), Facilitator’s Guide, and related readings found on the Center's website.
