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 2: Establish Processes for Collecting Data

Guideline: Misdirected progress monitoring efforts may be costly in wasted time and misinformation provided. When undertaking progress monitoring, it is important for teachers to prepare for monitoring, know how they will manage the classroom during the monitoring process, focus on the task and collect the data. The resources provided offer information teachers need to organize the data collection process.



Steps for Monitoring and Graphing Progress

This link provides a Pennsylvania Department of Education publication, which as noted at the website, "outlines a seven-step process to collect, analyze and use student data for instructional decision making." Though intended for Pennsylvania teachers, its content may be of use to teachers in other states when establishing processes for collecting data.


Implementing Progress Monitoring with Fidelity

This webinar from the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction website provides an overview of the purpose and focus of progress monitoring, progress monitoring tools, timeframe for progress monitoring, establishing procedures for data-based decision making for progress monitoring and progress monitoring with fidelity.

Managing Progress Monitoring in the Classroom

This resource at the Doing What Works website provides a webinar demonstrating the progress monitoring process in a first grade classroom. As noted at the website, the teacher "describes reading measures, classroom management strategies and gives an example of using data to differentiate instruction." The webinar runs about five minutes. A transcript is provided to follow along with the presentation.
