What is RTI?
RTI = Response to Intervention
RTI is a process focused on prevention and early intervention that uses multiple sources of data for instruction, differentiation, intervention, and transitions between tiers. The information collected from skill based universal screeners, additional sources of data, and survey-level and/or diagnostic assessments together inform important decisions about student learning.
Effective Instruction are standards based, differentiate, and anchored in contextual problems and authentic complex texts to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills in addition to strong academic and technical content knowledge.
The effectiveness of the intervention should be progress monitored to ensure that it is helping the student reach a goal.
