This brief evolved from a larger Robert Wood Johnson Foundation–funded project to examine the intersection of and alignment between social and emotional learning (SEL) and school climate. It includes the ten key ideas that emerged from a two-day discussion of SEL and school climate with practice leaders in April 2016.
The Stop, Think, Act: Ready to Assess toolkit, is available at no cost from AIR SEL Solutions. It 1) highlights the importance of implementation readiness and the conditions that foster SEL and development; 2) includes assessments of learning conditions in and out of school; and 3) updates the list of available social and emotional competency assessments.
This log can be used as a daily and weekly record of the implementation of an individual student’s intensive intervention plan and can provide fidelity data used within individual problem solving meetings.
NCII has created a series of tools to help teams establish efficient and effective individual student data meetings. These include sample agendas, note taking forms, facilitator materials, and problem solving tools.
Since 2011 the National Center on Intensive Intervention (NCII) has worked to build the capacity of state and local education agency personnel, university faculty, practitioners and other stakeholders to support the implementation of intensive intervention in reading, mathematics, and behavior for students with severe and/or persistent learning and behavioral needs.
This fourteen minute video, developed by NCII in partnership with the Wyoming Department of Education and staff and students from Laramie County School District # 1, shares Wyoming’s journey in building the capacity of educators to implement data-based individualization (DBI) to improve academic and behavior outcomes for students with disabilities as part of their state systemic improvement pla
The Taxonomy of Intervention Intensity can be used to select or evaluate an intervention platform used as the validated intervention platform or the foundation of the DBI process. It can also be used to guide the adaptation of intensification of an intervention during the intervention adaptation step of the DBI process.
We know that validity, reliability, classification accuracy, statistical bias, and sample representativeness are important considerations when reviewing screening tools, but what do they actually mean? These five screening one-page documents provide a brief overview of each of these areas that are used on the NCII Screening Tools Charts.
This Excel tool is designed to help educators collect academic progress monitoring data across multiple measures as a part of the data-based individualization (DBI) process. This tool allows educators to store data for multiple students (across multiple measures), graph student progress, and set individualized goals for a student on specific measures.
This webinar, led by Dr. Lynn Fuchs of Vanderbilt University and Dr. Lee Kern of Lehigh University, addresses a challenge faced by many teachers: feeling inundated by data while struggling to find useful information to guide intervention decision-making.
If you are like most educators, you agree with the idea of providing intensive intervention for students with the most intractable academic and behavior problems. The question you may be asking is, how do I find the time?
Data teams can use these checklists to monitor implementation of the initial planning meetings for individual students with intensive needs and ongoing review (progress monitoring) meetings.
Teams are a vital part of an effective multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS) across both academics and behavior as well as special education. Making connections across the various teams used in MTSS and special education can be challenging.
The Academic Intervention Tools Chart is designed to assist educators and families in becoming informed consumers who can select interventions that best meet their individual needs.
Children with severe needs related to behavior and/or social or emotional skills may benefit from intensive intervention. Universal screening may be used to identify children who require behavior intervention, including intensive intervention. The behavior screening tools chart provides ratings of a screener's ability to identify students who may need more intensive support.
