Response to Intervention Tiers
Response to Intervention (RTI) is increasingly more important in schools districts. Using DataMap, teachers can log specific areas of need to support students in their achieving improved academic achievement and how to improve standardized test scores.
What is Response To Intervention (RTI)?
RTI is a method of academic intervention providing early, effective assistance to children having difficulty learning. RTI can be used at the group or individual level and is a methodology to identifying and documenting learning challenge discrepancies between an ability, often measured by Intelligence Quotient/IQ testing, and academic achievement as measured by their grades and standardized testing.
Response to Intervention Tiers can include:
- Tier 1 – what happens in the classroom as teachers work with the students. Tier 1 meets approximately 80-85% of students’ needs.
- Tier 2 – when instruction occurs outside of the classroom or in small groups within the classroom. Curriculum supplements the core curriculum, does not replace it, for example, targeted reading instruction.
- Tier 3 – conversations and action to help students, based upon tier 1 and tier 2 Response to Intervention activity and outcome. Most intervention is provided to individuals or small groups of students, and delivered by an intervention specialist or special education specialist. Students are not necessarily identified as disabled. Only a small percentage of these students may go on to require special education services
Response to Intervention encourages early intervention and frequent progress measurement, to prevent academic failure.
