What is Response to Intervention?Enduring Understanding: The Response to Intervention process targets success for all students by emphasizing high quality instruction and early intervention. The student’s response to the interventions implemented at each tier of the model is carefully documented, monitored frequently and adjusted as needed.
The Major Components of RtI
- Data-based decision making--Critical educational decisions are based on assessment results. Data is carefully analyzed to determine why academic or behavioral problems exist.
- Universal screening--Universal screeners are assessments administered to all students to determine as early as possible which students are at risk of not meeting academic benchmarks. These screenings are administered three times per year in order to meet early intervention needs of all students.
- Tiered model of delivery--The RtI process incorporates a tiered model of delivery of instruction. The tiers reflect increasing intensification of interventions to meet the individual needs of students.
- Progress monitoring--The monitoring of student progress is a research-based practice that produces data about student growth over time. Progress monitoring is used to determine the effectiveness of instruction and/or interventions.
- Fidelity of Implementation--Fidelity of implementation is achieved when the delivery of instruction, assessments, and progress monitoring is carried out as it was designed to be.
