Response to Intervention (RTI) is a method schools often use to help determine if a child is inneed of special education services. What types of data can RTI provide, and how can such databe used to help determine a student’s best educational setting? Be specific.Response to Intervention is an instructional approach that is designed to provide earlyintervening services to struggling students and can be used to identify students with learningdisabilities. Student needs are addressed through multiple tiers or increasingly intensiveinstructional interventions. RTI incorporates high-quality instruction based on research-basedpractices, frequent progress monitoring and increasingly intense levels of intervention.(IRISCenter, 2009).Data-based decision making in RTI is the process of collecting data and using it to makeinstructional decisions. Progress monitoring should take place for all students in a classroom tomake instructional changes to improve academic growth. Universal screening is a briefassessment given to all students (fall, winter, spring) as a baseline and to identify which studentsare struggling. Once struggling students are identified, data will be collected more frequently (1-2 weeks) to determine if they are responding adequately to tier 1 instruction or if they wouldbenefit from a more targeted instruction. Frequent progress monitoring will continue weekly todetermine if the instructional intensity is appropriate and for team decision-making processesregarding student placement.
