Increase student achievement through systematic response
Response to Intervention at Work™—also known as a multitiered system of support (MTSS)—is a systematic process that helps ensure all students receive the time and support needed to learn at high levels. This is an ongoing commitment for schools and a different way of thinking to traditional models of schooling.
The vision of RTI at Work™ is for collaborative teams to work together to identify what’s most essential for students to learn, develop common assessments that measure learning, and provide targeted support to learners who need it.
The essential principles that guide the actions of educators as they implement the RTI process are:
- Collective responsibility – A shared belief that the primary responsibility of each member of the school is to ensure high levels of learning for every student.
- Concentrated instruction – A systematic process of identifying essential knowledge and skills that all students must master to learn at high levels and determining the specific learning needs of each student to get there.
- Convergent assessment – An ongoing process to collectively analyse evidence to determine the specific learning needs of each student and the effectiveness of the instruction the student receives in meeting these needs.
- Certain access – A systematic process that guarantees every student will receive the time and support needed to learn at high levels.
