Building Capacity for RTI in Texas Schools

Organization: Building Capacity for RTI in Texas Schools

The Building Capacity for Response to Intervention (RTI) project is designed to promote the implementation of RTI in Texas schools. The RTI approach focuses on identifying students who are struggling with learning, assessing their needs, immediately providing additional intervention that targets their areas of difficulty, and monitoring their progress and response to the intervention. The goal of RTI is to intervene early to prevent students from falling behind and developing learning difficulties.

Response to Intervention (RTI): 3 Tiered System A Model to Meet Student Needs in the Minneapolis Public Schools

Organization: Minneapolis Public Schools

This webinar was presented by Tom Hegranes, Ann Casey, and Doug Marston from the Minneapolis Public Schools on June 20, 2006. Since the mid-1990's, Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) has implemented a problem-solving approach to delivering early intervening services to struggling learners. This approach involves documenting student responses to interventions and, when satisfactory progress is not made, referring children for special education evaluation. The Minneapolis Problem-Solving Model is similar to the response to intervention approach (RtI) authorized under IDEA 2004.

What is Scientifically Based Research on Progress Monitoring

Organization: National Center on Student Progress Monitoring

When teachers use systematic progress monitoring to track their students progress in reading, mathematics, or spelling, they are better able to identify students in need of additional or different forms of instruction, they design stronger instructional programs, and their students achieve better. This document from the National Center for Student Progress Monitoring first describes progress monitoring procedures for which experimental evidence demonstrates these effects. Then, an overview of the research is presented.
