This collection of resources provides information about progress monitoring. Progress monitoring is used to assess students’ academic performance, to quantify a student rate of improvement or responsiveness to instruction, and to evaluate the effectiveness of instruction. Progress monitoring can be implemented with individual students or an entire class. In progress monitoring, attention should focus on fidelity of implementation and selection of evidence-based tools, with consideration for cultural and linguistic responsiveness and recognition of student strengths.
Watch and listen as Dr. Allison Gandhi addresses this question.
This series of self-paced learning modules defines the essential components of RTI: screening, progress monitoring, the multi-level prevention system, and data-based decision making.
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 video developed for the Illinois Center for School Improvement, Dr. Rebecca Zumeta Edmonds discusses how screening tools can provide a more accurate measure of at-risk students within the context of a multi-tiered system of supports.
This collection of resources provides information about data-based decision making. Data analysis and decision making occur at all levels of RTI implementation and all levels of instruction. Teams use data to make decisions about instruction, movement within the multi-level prevention system, and disability identification (in accordance with state law).
The Center on Response to Intervention and the National Center on Intensive Intervention have established a standard process to evaluate the scientific rigor of commercially available tools and interventions that can be used in an RTI context. The review process consists of five steps: (1) Submission from Vendors; (2) First- and Second-Level Review; (3) Interim Communication with Vendors; (4) Third-Level Review; (5) Finalization and Publication of Results. A detailed description of each of these steps follows.
This collection of publications includes research articles, presentations, tools, and briefs on a range of MTSS/RTI related topics.
Webinars are web-based seminars, or presentations, that are transmitted over the web. This collection includes webinars on a range of RTI related topics.
The Center's Technical Review Committee is made up of national experts in one or more of the critical components of RTI—screening, progress monitoring, and tiered instruction—and also have strong methodological backgrounds and expertise. The members of the TRC are identified below, as well as the specific criteria that were used to guide the TRC membership selection process.
