With a unique classroom focus , Linking Assessment to Instruction in Multi-Tiered Models, 1eshows teachers how to direct multi-tiered instruction and adjust their teaching based on screening, monitoring and diagnostic achievement scores. Beyond a theoretical perspective, this two-part text explores the multi-tiered instructional model found within the RTI framework and how to best implement it in the classroom setting.
