For many schools and districts, Response to Intervention (RtI) promises a roadmap toward identifying struggling students and provides a systematic approach to helping those students catch up to expected educational progress. When a teacher has 25+ students in a class, organization is key. Progress Monitoring data is a crucial step in this process that helps teachers and support specialists determine if the interventions in place are working for students - and how to respond if not.

- where progress monitoring fits in the intervention process and how it differs from screening
- how to interpret the data, and make informed decisions for students who need additional support
- what variables can impact your students' data
