  • Our presentation will demonstrate the development process and the actual integration and utilization of what we at ASD are calling the RtI Report. (Response to Intervention)
    Which is authorized through IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA )
    We expect this report to be vital in being proactive in the identification and evaluation of At Risk students.
    Supplemental reports
    Student Profile Report
    Class roster
    Assessments

  • As we moved into the process of making data driven decisions we felt that there was more we could do to help the schools with their data.
    As an old Special Education Teacher in my former life, I knew the pitfalls schools faced with kids falling through the cracks.
    We had an idea to see if Tetradata could help us with the process.
  • Response to Intervention is an integrated approach to service delivery that encompasses general, remedial, and special education for academic and behavioral concerns. It is a multi-tier model that coordinates educational resources. Each tier represents an increasing intensity of resources and services matched to student needs.
    COMPONENTS:
    Early intervening support
    Universal assessments to progress monitor student growth
    - Screening
    - Diagnostic
    - Progress Monitoring
    Data-based decision

  • The chart to the right appears on each RtI Report page so the user can have an understanding of what the points are telling them.
    It is important to remember that points or point totals do not represent a total of incidents or absences, etc, but is an accumulation of various categories that have various points assigned to a particular range of factors.

  • The move factor takes into account over a two year period and assigns points for any move that is not part of a normal school year move
    Example: move from grade 5 Dodd to Grade 6 South Mountain, no point would be assigned

    35 1 point
    40 1 point
    45 1 point
    50 1 point
    55 1 point
    Total so far is 10 points

  • Retention: We will be adding Retention into the point structure- Point structure will be more heavily weighted.
    Interventions: We will be adding various local and Title I interventions such as Reading Recovery, Soar to Success, etc.
    We will both list them and allocate points for them as well.
    These are programs we offer to assist and remediate students with various academic difficulties.
    We want to not only identify and track what interventions what students are taking but also the success or failure of these interverntions.

    33. 33. 33 Deborah Hartman Director of Special Education Allentown SD "Everyone tells educators "work smarter, not harder" as they wrestle to manage all the new regulations and educational innovations. A group of educators applied their technology skills and educational background to do just that. The TetraData Custom Report system assists colleague educators by putting meaningful bits of data at their fingertips. Tetra Data Custom Reports, developed by the Accountability and Assessment Dept , has the potential to help school systems, large and small, to virtually track student performance indicators and sort at-risk learners to the most able learner within seconds. This system gets an A+ for its teacher friendly appeal as the District embarks on the new framework of Response to Intervention."
    34. 34. 34 Tom Smith Lead Reading Teacher: Cleveland Elementary The RTI (Response to Intervention) is a powerful and promising approach to data analysis. It can provide a useful measure of the impact of interventions. Perhaps more importantly, it could be used longitudinally to anticipate and prevent problems. If a student’s score rises significantly, a counselor could investigate and help connect the student with appropriate services before the student reaches a crisis stage. A school district that is constantly putting out fires could be transformed into one that anticipates and prevents problems.
