By definition, RTI is the practice of

  • High-quality instruction and intervention matched to student needs
  • Using learning rate over time and level of performance
  • To inform educational decision

This is an excerpt from a booklet which is produced by the - NASDSE

To accomplish this, RTI encompasses four key principles:
1.Teach all students effectively
2.Intervene early
3.Use a multi-tier model of service delivery
4. adopt a problem solving methodology

The purpose is not to identify students for special educations services but to help every student achieve at a high level. It is based on the belief that all students can learn.

RTI uses a three tier model beginning with universal screening of every child to identify students at risk. Both academic and behavioral systems are included.

Tier 1: Core Instruction and Universal Interventions

Tier 2: Targeted Interventions

Tier 3: Intensive Interventions
