In this webinar, Dr. Kristen McMaster provides an overview of Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM) and discusses how CBM data can be used at the secondary level to monitor student progress. She discusses the purpose of CBM, provides a brief description of the research, and demonstrates how CBM data can be used to monitor student progress. She reviews CBM tools that are available for high schools in reading, mathematics, and the content areas, and provides instructions for developing CBM tools for use at the high school level. Following Dr. McMaster's presentation, representatives from Walla Walla High School in Walla Walla, Washington discuss how they have monitored school progress as part of their tiered intervention model.
This document was developed to help middle school 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. Daryl Mellard and Sara Prewett provide an overview of current RTI practices in middle schools across the nation. The webinar also includes information about how selected schools are implementing RTI in the middle grades. The webinar shares information about the implementation and the planning process, common practices in screening, progress monitoring, and tiered instruction, staff preparation, data-based decision making, challenges, and next steps for RTI implementation in secondary settings.
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.
From your work leading the National High School Center, what advice or insight do you have for districts that may be interested in implementing tiered interventions at the high school level?
