This collection of resources provides information about data-based decision making. Data analysis and decision making occur at all levels of RTI implementation and all levels of instruction. Teams use data to make decisions about instruction, movement within the multi-level prevention system, and disability identification (in accordance with state law).
This series of self-paced learning modules takes a closer look at how assessment and data-based decision making are used within the RTI framework. The first in this series provides an overview of the types of assessments that can be used within a RTI framework, while the others look more specifically at decision making using screening and progress monitoring data. The final module explores how the multi-level prevention system relates to special education and how RTI differs from a prereferral process.how the multi-level prevention system relates to special education and how RTI differs from a prereferral process.
I’ve been collecting progress monitoring data, when do I know it’s time to make an intervention change?
Watch and listen as Dr. Erica Lembke addresses this question.
This learning module focuses on the types of decisions that can be made at the district, school, grade/class, and individual level using screening data, the data review process, and how to select cut scores. It provides information, examples, and activities to learn about the types of data analysis that can be conducted to make data-based decisions with screening data at both the individual student level and the system level.
Through this module participants will become familiar with the essential components of an RTI framework with a particular focus on universal screening and data-based decision making using screening data. The module covers (1) basic information on screening, (2) assessments used within an RTI framework, and (3) skills needed to use screening data to identify students at risk, to conduct basic data analysis using screening data, and to establish a screening process.
In this webinar, Dr. Amy Elledge provides an overview of the process of data-based decision making and the different types of decisions that can be made with screening and progress monitoring data in order to identify students in need of additional instruction and interventions.
This resource provides a definition of RTI, reviews essential RTI components (screening, progress monitoring, the multi-level prevention system, and data-based decision making), and responds to frequently asked questions about implementing RTI. This document lays out four essential components of RTI: a school-wide, multi-level instructional and behavioral system for preventing school failure; screening; progress monitoring; and data-based decision making for instruction, movement within the multi-level system, and disability identification (in accordance with state law).
These three training modules were developed for beginning implementers of response to intervention (RTI) or multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS). These modules are intended to provide foundational knowledge about the essential components of RTI (screening, progress monitoring, the multi-level prevention system, and data-based decsion makning) and to build an understanding about the importance of RTI implementation. The modules were designed to be delivered in the following sequence: screening, progress monitoring, and multi-level prevention system. The fourth essential component, data-based decision making, is embedded throughout the three modules.
The purpose of this module is to help Leadership Teams undertake the support activities necessary to enable classroom teachers to develop and effectively use student progress monitoring data. The module provides guidance on bringing about effective collaboration in the data-based decision-making model, setting measurable goals for school reform, and ensuring school reform is driven by data. It also highlights how the use of progress monitoring can both reduce bias in the assessment process and reduce the likelihood of inappropriate special education referrals. The module concludes with a suggested sequence of study group activities for the leadership team.
This glossary includes key terms related to MTSS/RTI and the essential components of MTSS/RTI, screening, progress monitoring, multi-level prevention system, and data-based decison making.
