Response to Intervention (RtI) Scientifically Based Research (SBR) Intervention Curriculum & Instruction Department November 2010
Passed Away on December 4, 2004: Burial to be announced I.Q. Achievement Discrepancy
I.Q. Achievement Discrepancy HARM Pivotal issues is harm to children Ability-achievement discrepancy model delays treatment to the point where there is documented evidence that treatments are less effective to the point where children suffer the profound consequences of poor reading instruction.
I.Q. Achievement Discrepancy Final Nail in the Coffin Proposed Regulations state discrepancy model is “potentially harmful” to students

Why RtI? Einstein’s definition of insanity Einstein’s definition of insanity: “ doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
SBR Intervention Definition (A) means research that involves the application of rigorous, systematic, and objective procedures to obtain reliable and valid knowledge relevant to education activities and programs; and (No Child Left Behind Act: Title IX—General Provisions: Part A—Definitions Sec. 9101)
Six Criteria for SBR Employs systematic, empirical methods that draw on observation or experiment; 2. Involves rigorous data analyses that are adequate to test the stated hypotheses and justify the general conclusions drawn; (No Child Left Behind Act: Title IX—General Provisions: Part A—Definitions Sec. 9101)
3. 3. Relies on measurements or observational methods that provide reliable and valid data across evaluators and observers, across multiple measurement and observations, and across studies by the same or different investigators; Six Criteria for SBR (No Child Left Behind Act: Title IX—General Provisions: Part A—Definitions Sec. 9101)
Six Criteria for SBR Is evaluated using experimental or quasi-experimental designs in which individuals, entities, programs or activities are assigned to different conditions and with appropriate controls to evaluated the effects of the condition of interest, with a preference for random- assignment experiments, or other designs to the extent that those designs contain within-conditions or across-condition controls; (No Child Left Behind Act: Title IX—General Provisions: Part A—Definitions Sec. 9101)
Six Criteria for SBR Ensures that experimental studies are presented in sufficient detail and clarity to allow for replication or, at a minimum, offer the opportunity to build systematically on their findings; and 6. Has been accepted by a peer- reviewed journal or approved by a panel of independent experts through a comparable rigorous, objective, and scientific review.

SBR Interventions Characteristics Reliable: Consistency produces the and results Valid: Measures what it claims to measure Peer reviewed: Research is scrutinized by peers Replicable: Can be repeated 2006 LRP Publications: RTI and the Classroom Teacher
In other words……. SBR interventions are: NOT A FLUKE TRIED – AND – TRUE Remove the guesswork! 2006 LRP Publications: RTI and the Classroom Teacher
Preferential seating, Shortened assignments, Parent contacts Classroom observations, Allowing more time for task completion, Moving a student’s seat, Retention, Referral to Special Education, Cutting list of spelling words in half, Suspension and Retention SBR Interventions are NOT: 2006 LRP Publications: RTI and the Classroom Teacher
Explanation of Interventions Selection intervention strategies that match student’s needs Monitor intervention through progress monitoring. If the child is not making progress, consider modifying the intervention or switching to another intervention. Interventions should always supplement instruction and not replace instruction in the general education classroom. Intervention strategies should be research based and feasible to implement.
