Once a Response-To-Intervention (RTI) framework is in place, how can educators determine whether or not interventions are working? This volume focuses on the "response" component of RTI, providing essential knowledge and hands-on techniques for assessing the effectiveness of RTI practices. The authors show how to select suitable assessment measures, analyze data about academic and behavioral interventions, and make defensible decisions about groups, individual students, and special education eligibility. Professional development strategies are also addressed. Useful reproducible tools are included; the large-size format and lay-flat binding facilitate photocopying. This book is in The Guilford Practical Intervention in the Schools Series.
