What Counts as Evidence? Making Decisions for Instruction and Intervention within a Multi-Tiered System of Support

What is an evidence-based practice? How do I know if evidence shows that a practice will be right for my students? Many practitioners ask these critical questions every day as they are faced with making decisions regarding how to best meet the needs of their students. In this webinar, staff from NCII, Collaboration for Effective Educator Development Accountability and Reform (CEEDAR) Center, and the National Center on Systemic Improvement (NCSI) share content focused on the continuum of evidence that supports instruction within multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS). Presenters Rebecca Zumeta Edmonds Ph.D., Allison Gruner Gandhi Ed.D, and Lynn Holdheide M.Ed. describe key considerations for making informed decisions about evidence-based practices when options seem limited. Information will include a review of the approaches taken by the CEEDAR Center and NCII to identify essential components, tools, and reviews of instructional practices grounded in research across all tiers of an MTSS framework.
