Aligned with the NMAP final report and IES practice guide, this resource offers guidelines, intervention strategies, and case studies for designing and implementing RTI in math.

A Tiered Approach to More Effective Mathematics Instruction

A tiered approach to more effective mathematics instruction

Positive results can be achieved in a reasonable time at accessible cost, but a consistent, wise, community-wide effort will be required.

—National Mathematics Advisory Panel Final Report (2008), p. 12

The organization of RTI rests on a tiered system to structure instruction and interventions based on student needs. As discussed in Chapter 2, there are two basic approaches to RTI: the problem-solving approach and the standard protocol approach. Within the problem-solving approach, teachers decide on specific interventions to help students learn better based on formative assessment information.
