What is RtI?
Response to Intervention (RtI or RTI) is an instructional framework that provides ALL students with the instruction they need for learning success. The goal of RtI is to intervene early – when students begin to struggle with learning – to prevent them from falling behind and developing learning difficulties.
There are three essential components to RtI:
High-quality instruction/intervention matched to student needs
Using learning rate over time and level of performance
To make important education decisions
The RtI framework includes a three-tier instructional model
Tier I/Core: Core classroom instruction that all students receive with assessment of student progress three times per year
Tier II/Supplemental: Intervention (additional instruction) and frequent progress monitoring (e.g., every 2 weeks) that struggling learners receive
Tier III/Intensive: More intensive intervention and frequent progress monitoring that students with extreme learning difficulties received after not making adequate progress in Tiers I and II
