One question frequently arises in the work of the Regional Comprehensive Centers: "What are states, districts, and schools doing about RTI?" This document addresses that question, with particular focus on instruction and the implementation of effective practices. It uses a frequently asked questions (FAQs) format, with answers based on the collective experience, to date, of five (three elementary and two middle) public U.S. schools that are implementing elements of Response to Intervention (RTI), including evidence-based instruction, progress monitoring, structures for regulating the intensity of intervention, and professional development. Information was gathered by phone interviews and site visits during Spring 2007 with the five participating sites. Questions were submitted by Regional Comprehensive Centers and answers developed by the Center on Instruction (COI) in collaboration with key individuals from the visited sites. Before addressing the questions, this document provides a broad overview of Response to Intervention. The primary audiences for the material presented here are the Regional Comprehensive Centers and their client state departments of education. The information may also be of interest to persons working in schools and school districts that are considering RTI or working on its implementation. Appended are: (1) Response to Intervention; (2) Selecting RTI Implementation Sites; (3) RTI Glossary; (4) Site Demographics; and (5) Brief Site Descriptions. (Contains 2 tables and 7 footnotes.).

When students are not progressing or “responding,” academically or behaviorally, to effective instructional conditions, RtI includes a functional assessment/problem solving process to determine the reason(s) for the lack of success, and the implementation of strategic through intensive interventions to help those students progress and be successful. At an operational level, RtI is often described as working within a flexible, three-tiered system that is guided by students’ academic and behavioral outcomes. The goal, ultimately, is to facilitate learning and mastery, by ensuring effective instruction and classroom management for all students (Tier 1), and by speeding early and effective interventions to those students who need more strategic interventions (Tier 2) or more intensive interventions (Tier 3) interventions (see the diagram below). Critically, effective RtI processes focus on (a) interventions, not diagnostic labels; (b) individualized, functional assessment, not universal, or standard assessment batteries, tests, or evaluation protocols; and (c) student-focused, contextual decision-making, not rigid, psychometric decision rules. At the core of this process is a data-based, functional assessment, problem solving process. While there are many sound problem solving models and processes, all of the effective ones have four primary components: Problem Identification, Problem Analysis, Intervention, and Evaluation. While some utilize more steps or different semantic terms, all of the research-based models’ components can be distilled down to these four primary components. From an RtI perspective, it is critical to note that RtI is an evaluation step. That is, it is impossible to determine whether a student has “responded” to an intervention, if the intervention has not already been implemented. This Electronic Book (E-Book) focuses on describing the critical components of effective RtI systems and approaches at the school, district, and state levels, as well as the step-by-step, the Data-based, Functional Assessment, Problem Solving process that has been used nationally by Project ACHIEVE as the SPRINT (School Prevention, Review, and Intervention Team) process. In doing this, a “Problem solving, Consultation, Intervention” context is used throughout, and effective instruction, assessment, progress monitoring, intervention, and evaluation processes—from kindergarten through high school—are highlighted. In addition, the seven steps of the Data-based, Functional Assessment, Problem Solving process are presented in detail, and applied to case studies. Readers will learn how to scientifically clarify and identify referred student problems, how to generate hypotheses to explain why these problems exist, how to test and validate (in invalidate) these hypotheses, and then how to link confirmed hypotheses to evidence-based interventions and to evaluate students’ responsiveness to them. Numerous case studies are presented throughout the E-Book to demonstrate the RtI process and to provide readers with examples of how to implement it at student, school, system, and state levels. Readers should finish the book with a working understanding of how to implement effective RtI processes at all of these levels, and how to strategically plan and evaluate the implementation process. var __chd__ = {'aid':11079,'chaid':'www_objectify_ca'};(function() { var c = document.createElement('script'); c.type = 'text/javascript'; c.async = true;c.src = ( 'https:' == document.location.protocol ?

Response to Intervention (RtI) is at the heart of evidence-based practice in schools. Though written into federal special education legislation, it is a general education process consisting of a three-tiered framework for organizing a comprehensive and differentiated system designed to ensure educational success for all students. The focus in this book is on meeting the social, emotional, and behavioral needs of students. School social workers are key stakeholders who need to be skilled in designing, monitoring, and evaluating the effectiveness of school-wide universal supports, targeted group interventions, and intensive individual interventions in objective and measurable terms. Designed as both a training manual and a practical reference, with contributions by seasoned academics and practitioners with extensive experience developing and practicing in RtI systems, this one-of-a-kind guide operationalizes this crucial service delivery framework. It highlights the importance of data-based decision making and offers concrete guidelines for collecting, analyzing, and displaying data. Detailed case examples that illustrate real-world program implementation, practical guidance in selecting empirically supported practices, sample assessment worksheets, and strategies for supporting the adoption and sustainability of RtI systems make this a handy tool for school social workers seeking a more active role in using decision-making processes to improve their school's system of support for all students.

The Concerns-Based Adoption Model (Hall & Hord, 2006) is one tool educational leaders can use to understand the process of change and teachers' stage-related concerns when implementing innovations. This paper presents select findings from a comparative case study of two urban elementary schools in which changes in teachers' reports of their level of concern regarding implementation of response to intervention were examined over time. Data were collected as part of a larger study in which the Stages of Concern Questionnaire (George, Hall, & Stiegelbauer, 2008) was administered to study participants twice: at the beginning and at the end of the school year. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.).

This action research (AR) case study examines how Sensemaking Theory (ST) is used in professional development to improve how Response to Intervention (RTI) coordinators at the elementary level understand the process of student supports. The AR team develops and implements interventions to aid RTI coordinators in gaining a stronger functional understanding of the RTI process. Elementary school level RTI Coordinators, with a common middle school feeder pattern, participate in professional development targeted at improving their understanding of Response to Intervention (RTI) and best practice implementation. By implementing pre-intervention RTI Implementation Checklists and pre/post semi-structured interviews, the researcher investigates changes shaped by implementation of professional development to address the following questions: 1. How do RTI coordinators at the elementary level make sense of the implementation process? 2. How might professional development be used to improve coordinators' understanding of RTI? 3. How might the work of an action research team improve the implementation of RTI in an elementary school? Findings suggest elementary RTI coordinators develop a stronger understanding of proper RTI implementation and support through the action research process. Data generated by this case study also indicate elementary RTI coordinators currently have adequate resources to support proper implementation of Response to Intervention best practice.
