During problem analysis, educators gather information on instruction, curriculum, and the environment to determine how it supports learners. Use this infographic to identify variables to measure and resources to support assessment.
When assessing a student's need for intervention, it can be helpful to determine where their skills are within the instructional hierarchy. This infographic illustrates the 4 main stages of the instructional hierarchy (acquisition, fluency, generalization, adaptation) and can be used as a quick reference.
Tier 1 includes high-quality, schoolwide academic, social, emotional, and behavioral programming and supports designed to meet the needs of all students. This infographic details the essential features of effective Tier 1 instruction.
The MTSS framework is comprised of four essential components: screening, progress monitoring, multi-level prevention system, and data-based decision making. This collection of infographics provide an overview of key features of each of the essential components of MTSS.
Progress monitoring is the repeated measurement of student performance over time. It requires reliable and valid tools and a clear process to monitor the necessary students with fidelity. Data from progress monitoring is used to assess student performance, quantify improvement or responsiveness to intervention and instruction, and evaluate the effectiveness of instruction, interventions, and supports. This infographic illustrates key features of progress monitoring at the elementary and secondary grades and considerations for progress monitoring tools and processes.
Universal screening uses a systematic process for identifying students who may be at risk for poor learning outcomes, including academic, behavioral, social, emotional, school completion, and college and career readiness outcomes. Within this infographic, we illustrate key features of universal screening.
MTSS requires the use of data-based decision making to evaluate systems, match students to supports, and ensure effective implementation. This infographic summarizes the key pieces of data-based decision making.
A multi-level prevention system provides increasingly intense levels of instruction and support to address student need. Students may need more or less intensive levels of support across different subject areas and points in time. This infographic highlights the key features and differences among the tiers.
Tier 3 is individualized and intensive intervention designed to help students with severe and persistent academic, social, emotional, and/or behavioral needs, including students with disabilities. It is a data-driven process characterized by increased intensity and individualization of supports. This infographic highlights eight essential features of Tier 3 and provides resources and information to learn more about Tier 3.
Sites implementing MTSS use different sources of data to answer a variety of questions. This infographics highlights four types of data and the specific questions teams can answer with each data type.
