1 Screening Process - Digging Deeper Instructional Sort Reviewing Your Selected and Intensive Levels of SupportScreening Process - Digging Deeper Instructional SortOur FocusThe Wisconsin RtI Center/Wisconsin PBIS Network (CFDA #84.027) acknowledges the support of the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction in the development of this document and for the continued support of this federally-funded grant program.

2 Screening Assessments - Not Always Enough Screening assessments often do not go deep enough in answering the questions:Why is the student below the expected level?How far beyond the expected level is the student?We need to “DIG DEEPER!”School LevelGroupsIndividuals
3 Impact of universal level of support on students 1. School-Level Screening Review:Do we have a healthy system? School-level team looks at universal screening results2. School-Level Digging Deeper Review:What are our universal level instructional strengths?What are our universal level instructional concerns?Do we have any underserved groups?School-level team gather additional information and review at a deeper levelImpact of universal level of support on students(aggregated and disaggregated)
4 Groups/individuals potentially in need of additional support 1. Grade-Level Screening Review: Groups and Individual Students Department-/Grade-level team looks at screening results2. Grade-Level Digging Deeper Review:What are the student’s instructional strengths?What are the student’s instructional concerns?School-level team gather additional information and review at a deeper levelGroups/individuals potentially in need of additional support

7 The Instructional Sort Helps Us: 1Know if there is an area that needs universal whole group attention.Determine if a large percentage of students have a similar need/s.2Guide differentiation within the universal level for whole group, small group, and individual students.Determine when the instructional need is more intense.3Provide matched intervention grouping.Data for
8 Dig Deeper - Systemic and Systematic Screening Process DataIs the student above or below the screening benchmark?If so, dig deeperReviewWhat is the reading concern?Did you validate the problem using additional data?Do you have precision information to articulate matched additional supports?Instructional Sort: Administer oral fluency assessment/s with students who are below the benchmark. Sort student names in the quadrant that aligns with the student’s baseline/median results.Administer assessments with no grade level ceiling for students above the benchmark and determine matched instruction.ProcessRefer to the Instructional Sort and analyze data at the building, group, and student levels.Determine ambitious goals so student/s will meet or exceed end of the year benchmarks.Define additional instruction and intensity level.
9 Why is Fluency So Important? “…fluency is an essential element that bridges the gap between word recognition and comprehension.” Vaughn and Linan-ThompsonWhat does this translate to…Students’ struggles with comprehension skills may be a result of deficits in any of the foundation skills and/or deficits in comprehension strategies.So we need to have a systemic and systematic process to analyze why students are not proficient and make an instructional match within a culturally responsive multi-level system of support.

12 Why is Rickie performing below the benchmark on the comprehension screener? Find root cause. 1.) Can rule out fluency as a barrier. 2.) Focus on digging deeper in the instructional areas of comprehension/vocabulary.Group 1- RickieSample Instructional Plan:Instructional SortGroup 1: Accurate and FluentRickieChrisGroup 2:Accurate but Slow RateLainie MikeGroup 3:Inaccurate and Slow RateTimGroup 4:Inaccurate but High RateJanelleInstruction on monitoring for meaningInstruction on determining main ideasInstruction on fix-up strategiesInstruction on *tier 2 academic vocabulary and vocabulary learning strategies*Beck, McKowan and Kucan(2002)Howell, cited by Harken and Fay
13 Why is Lainie performing below the benchmark? Find root cause. 1. Based on the data, we can hypothesize that Lainie is a word-for word reader. Her lack of automaticity is a having an impact on her comprehension.Instructional SortGroup 1: Accura te and FluentChrisRickieGroup 2:Accurate but Slow RateLainie MikeGroup 3:Inaccurate and Slow RateTimGroup 4:Inaccurate but High RateJanelleGroup 2- LainieSample Instructional Plan:Instruction on automaticity at Lainie’s appropriate level: data indicates Lainie is at the sentence levelDo not ignore making meaning of textRepeated and assisted reading >move to passage level as data indicatesInstruction on grouping words to make meaning, adjust pacing, and attention to punctuationUse both narrative and informational textsInstruct using a comprehension focus.Howell, cited by Harken and Fay
14 Phonological Word Recognition Basic Decoding Multi-syllabication Why is Tim performing below the screening benchmark? Find root cause.We can hypothesize Tim is not comprehending text because he is not able to decode words with automaticity. What are the prerequisite skills that are preventing Tim from reading fluently and accurately ?May need additional information/assessments to identify specific needs such as: Running Records with Miscue(Error) Analysis - Gather miscue samples at student instructional level and look for common themesDigging Deeper: Group 3 - TimInstructional SortGroup 1: Accurate and FluentChris RickieGroup 2:Accurate but Slow RateLainie MikeGroup 3:Inaccurate and Slow RateTimGroup 4:Inaccurate but High RateJanellePhonologicalWord RecognitionBasic DecodingMulti-syllabicationHowell, cited by Harken and Fay

16 Group 4 - Inaccurate but High Rate - Janelle Find Root Cause - Could be due to Multiple ReasonsMay need instructional emphasis on monitoring for meaningMay need to teach student to adjust rate of reading to type of text and purpose for readingMay be inserting or deleting words (particularly function words such as: a, the), dropping endings, etc.May need to cue student when she makes an error to create awareness of the inaccuracy: assisted self- monitoring
