What is a Tier 1 response?
What is Tier 1 in Response to Intervention (RTI) / Multi Tiered System of Supports (MTSS)? At Tier 1, all students receive scientific, research-based core instruction implemented with integrity and emphasizing grade-level standards and school-wide behavioral expectations.
What does Tier 2 RTI look like?
RTI Tier 2 Interventions are small groups. These groups are formed based on specific skills not mastered from Tier 1 instruction. Since they are formed around “skill mastery,” these groups are temporary; they meet only until a specific set of skills are mastered.
What is the first tier of intervention?
Remember, the first tier is rooted in consistently delivering differentiated and scientifically-based instruction. By using aforementioned first-tier tactics — as well as researching and incorporating similar ones — you should prevent many intervention cases.
What is the difference between Tier 2 and Tier 3 interventions?
Because students at Tier 2 are below expected benchmarks for their grade but have less intensive needs than those at Tier 3, interventions at Tier 2 involve instructional programs that are aimed at a level of skill development considered to be further along the continuum of skill acquisition than that seen at Tier 3.
What happens if a student doesn’t respond to a Tier 1 intervention?
If the student isn’t responding to Tier 1 interventions, the team of educators may decide to move him or her to a level two. If a student continues to struggle with Tier Three interventions, a referral to special education or 504 plan may be considered.
What is an example of a Tier 2 instructional process?
For example, a student may be assigned to a Tier 2 instructional process focused primarily on fluency building in reading. When the team meets, they note that the student’s progress-monitoring data shows that the student is now reading at levels above the benchmark for end-of-year performance for that grade.
