PowerPoint Presentation: RESPONSE TO INTERVENTION EFFECTIVE EVIDENCE BASED INSTRUCTION WITH CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT Thomas E. Daniels EDPY 556 Professor Heather Maguire, PsyD , NCSP, BCBA-D Azusa Pacific University RESPONSE TO INTERVENTION: RESPONSE TO INTERVENTION RTI puts instruction first and is a systematic method for assessment and instruction of students which uses progress monitoring to help pinpoint students who may need intervention (Hughes & Dexter, 2011). As originally designed, the goal of RTI is to reduce the number of students identified for special education services primarily due to reading problems. It is a general education initiative which takes place prior to evaluation for placement in special education ( Hazelkorn , Bucholz , Goodman, Duffy , & Brady , 2011). Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) 2004, incorporated language to allow RTI to be used as an alternative to the IQ-discrepancy model to prevent the wait to fail syndrome. RTI uses a three-tiered approach to identify and help struggling learners with each tier requiring an increase in intensity of the teaching intervention. Response to Intervention THREE TIERED CONTINUUM : Response to Intervention THREE TIERED CONTINUUM RTI’s Importance to Education Professionals: RTI’s Importance to Education Professionals Counselors Early identifier of learning and reading disabled children, instead of waiting to fail ( , 2008). Utilized for academic as well as behavior assessments. Helps address high school student disengagement. School Psychologists Reduces the number of children being identified as learning disabled, ( Hazelkorn & Bucholz , 2011 ). Promotes collaboration with Student Study Teams. Evidence-based approach provides credibility to assessments and interventions. FIVE KEY COMPONENTS TO EFFECTIVE INSTRUCTION WITH RTI: FIVE KEY COMPONENTS TO EFFECTIVE INSTRUCTION WITH RTI Content: Matched to what students need to learn in order to progress in the curriculum and school program. Compliments the knowledge or skills students gain in traditional instruction. Delivery: Explicit description of skills to be learned provided by teacher. Multiple opportunities for students to rehearse new skills. All students actively engaged with skill development. Pace: Intensive practice provided in early stages of acquisition. Judicious review of previously learned knowledge/skills. Responses: Correct responses reinforced by teacher with verbal praise. Incorrect responses addressed immediately with correct response rehearsed. Assessment: Students assessed continuously with daily progress recorded. Progress data reviewed weekly to determine if changes to instruction required. Brown- Chidsey & Steege , 2010 Four Purposes of Assessment : Four Purposes of Assessment Program Evaluation: How is the education system working for students overall? Screening: Which of my students are not meeting grade level expectations given Universal instruction? Diagnostic: What are the specific needs of students with reading, math, behavior? Monitoring Progress: What does the student’s growth look like?
