10 Steps to Make RTI Work in Schools

Organization: Center on Response to Intervention at American Institutes for Research

This publication is part of a series by the American Institutes for Research (AIR) that offers policymakers, educators, and the general public accessible, research-based information on pressing education issues. AIR worked closely with a school in New York to implement a rigorous response to intervention (RTI) framework over 3 years. In the course of this work, both AIR and the school took away several important building blocks useful to any school or district implementing RTI. This piece summarizes information by sharing the work alongside useful resources and evidence about the implementation of RTI.

A Blueprint for Effectively Using RTI Intervention Block Time

Organization: Education Development Center, MA

Many schools have adopted schoolwide intervention blocks as a component of response-to-intervention (RTI) implementation to ensure that students who need intervention are receiving it. This resource presents a blueprint of how to organize intervention block time within an RTI framework. The authors provide a rationale for creating a schoolwide intervention block, and describe how to effectively implement an intervention block while avoiding potential pitfalls.. Specific planning considerations are outlined and suggestions for monitoring fidelity of implementation are presented.

Academic Intervention Tools Chart

Organization: National Center on Intensive Interventions (NCII)

The National Center on Intensive Intervention publishes this chart to assist educators and families in becoming informed consumers who can select intervention programs that best meet their individual needs. The National Center on Intensive Intervention defines Intensive Instructional Intervention as additional or alternative intervention programs to the core curriculum conducted in small groups or individually with evidence of efficacy for improving academic outcomes for students whose performance is unsatisfactory in the core program. The chart reports information on four aspects of the studies/interventions: (1) Study Quality, (2) Effect Size, (3) Intensity, and (4) Additional Research.

Data based Individualization: A Framework for Intensive Intervention

Organization: What Works Clearinghouse, Institute of Education Sciences

Data-based individualization (DBI) is a research-based process for individualizing and intensifying interventions through the systematic use of assessment data, validated interventions, and research-based adaptation strategies. DBI is the technical term for what many good teachers do naturally through the problem-solving process: frequently review student data and make changes to their teaching based on what works for students. DBI, however, makes this process systematic, explicit, and tailored to meet the needs of individual students through a multistep process that gradually intensifies instruction and support.
