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: Learn About the Research Supporting Progress Monitoring

Guideline: Being aware of evidence-based research supporting progress monitoring is necessary to understand its underlying principles and assure effective application in practice. Possessing this understanding may help to promote effective student monitoring. This task provides information on such research.



Progress Monitoring: Overview of Research

This link to the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Special Education Programs website provides an overview of the research on progress monitoring.

Research Institute on Progress Monitoring

The Research Institute on Progress Monitoring is funded by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Special Education Programs and housed at the University of Minnesota. As noted at its website, the Institute's mission is to "develop a system of progress monitoring to evaluate effects of individualized instruction on access to and progress within the general education curriculum."
