The Response to Intervention Framework (RTI) is a multi-tiered approach to teaching and learning that delivers services to promote efficient response to students’ needs. The purpose of RTI is to prevent long-term academic failure in both general education and special education settings by proactively identifying students’ needs at all levels.
Aligning to the RTI Framework, SPI supports:
- Multi-tiered instruction and intervention with a fast and flexible assessment model
- Scientifically-validated and research-based standards with extensive research demonstrating effectiveness.
- Universal screening which allows educators to simultaneously assess word-reading skills for all students, and to identify students in need of explicit foundational reading instruction.
- Progress monitoring with automatically collected data and robust reports that make clear recommendations and demonstrate student attainment of hard-to-measure foundational reading skills.
- Customized professional development and capacity-building solutions with web-based training schedules to suit your school's needs.
How SPI and SRI Work Together to Support the RTI Framework
|RTI Requirements||Multi-Tier Instruction and Intervention Models||Scientifically Validated and Research-Based||Universal Screening||Progress Monitoring Tools||Customized Professional Development|
|Scholastic Assessment Alignment||Accurate placement recommendations for all tiers of RTI||Third-party validation studies reveal high levels of effectiveness and reliability.||Fast, accurate, and scalable computer-based assessment for reading||Three equivalent forms for SPI, and a computer-based adaptive test environment for SRI supports benchmarking needs||Customized, in-person and web-based implementation training support capacity-building needs|
