Response to Intervention (RtI)

Response to Intervention (RtI) is “the practice of providing (1) high-quality instruction/ intervention matched to student needs, and (2) using learning rate over time and level of performance to, (3) make important educational decisions” (Batsche, et al., 2005). This means using differentiated instructional strategies for all learners, providing all learners with scientific, research-based interventions, continuously measuring student performance using scientifically research-based progress monitoring instruments for all learners and making educational decisions based on a student’s response to interventions.

District 142 uses the FastBridge benchmark assessments, Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) scores, IAR results, and classroom assessments to provide educational decisions and monitor student progress.
