The RTI Fidelity of Implementation Rubric and the RTI Essential Components Worksheet are for use by individuals responsible for monitoring the school-level fidelity of RTI implementation. They may also be used by schools for self-appraisal evaluation; however, they were not designed for compliance monitoring and therefore should not be used for this purpose. The rubric and the worksheet are designed to be used together and are aligned with the essential components of RTI.
Please note that these are revised editions of the rubric and worksheet, originally developed by the National Center on Response to Intervention, to reflect the most current thinking and learning about RTI. The rubric and worksheet have been further refined by states to shift the focus to MTSS. Examples from two states are provided below.
