Response to Intervention KnowledgeBase

This KnowledgeBase archive includes content and external links that were accurate and relevant as of September 30, 2019.

The Response to Intervention KnowledgeBase is an online resource supporting educators in understanding and implementing the response to intervention (RTI) model. The National Implementation Research Network (NIRN) has identified four stages in the implementation of evidence-based strategies such as RTI. The first stage is Exploration, and it involves consideration of the essential components of RTI models and the district or school's readiness to implement an RTI model with fidelity. During the second stage, Installation, a district or school selects an RTI model and works actively to put in place all of the supports necessary for implementing the essential components. These supports can include staff member training, policies, implementation guides, forms, assessments, instructional programs, and software. The third stage is Initial Implementation, and it involves implementing the essential components. Initial Implementation can involve just a few components or teachers, and then implementation expands over time. When the majority of teachers are implementing all components of RTI with fidelity, the district or school is in the fourth stage, called Full Implementation. This KnowledgeBase is geared primarily toward those in the Exploration and Installation stages, with some resources for those in the Initial Implementation stage.

Task 1: Analyze Screening Data

Guideline: Upon completing the screening process, it is necessary to analyze the results generated from the screening tool or tools used against the established curriculum benchmarks. This task provides resources to assist with analyzing the data.



Graphing Student Academic Data for Universal Screening and Progress Monitoring

This article, authored by State University of New York at Oswego's James L. McDougal, Psy.D., and Michael LeBlanc, Ph.D., and the University of Massachusetts' John Hintze, Ph.D., offers a methodology for graphing student universal screening and progress monitoring data. Also provided is a link to the DIBELS scoring template developed by James McDougal and Michael LeBlanc. This template was referenced in the article Graphing Student Academic Data for Universal Screening and Progress Monitoring. Teachers may find these templates covering Kindergarten through grade 6 helpful when analyzing screening data.
