(brief) RTI OVERVIEW & BENCHMARK ASSESSMENT TRAINING: 2nd-5th Grades MEASURING STUDENT PROGRESS IN YOUR PLC Lake Myra Elementary School * July 2009
Intervention Alignment ….IA Response to Intervention…RTI …. is a collaborative learning process of providing differentiated research based data driven instruction and intervention to both high achieving & struggling learners to predict, measure & evaluate academic growth.
Desired Outcomes After TodayAfter Week 1After Week 2After Week 3 Know how to administer and score the benchmark assessment. Administer and score 5 students, then at the end of week 1, come back together for a troubleshooting and debriefing check-in. Administer and score 5 or more students. Check in at the end of the week if necessary. Complete and score rest of class and meet to enter data at early release day.
Benchmark Assessments General Outcome Measures “Predictors” “Indicators”of reading achievement Big 5 Areas – R-CBM Fluency assesses Fluency & Comp. Standardized Research based Time Sensitive Short for “do-ability” CBM – Curriculum Based Measurement
R-CBM: Oral Fluency – Before Testing Student Passages (3 – Fall) Class List Stop Watch (F&P Kit) Clipboard Pencil 1:1, away from distractions, sit across from, best vs. fast reading, it’s about testing not teaching
During Testing Administration Fidelity Standardized directions Emphasize Words Read Correctly 3-Second Rule No Other Corrections Discontinue Rule Being Polite Speed Reading Interruptions
Oral Fluency - Rules for Scoring What is a word read correctly? What is an Error? What is not Incorrect? Score = WRC/Errors Qualitative Features Checklist Practice Oral Reading Fluency Passages Practice 1 – Passage 1 Practice 2 – Passage 5 Practice 3 – Passage 8
Oral Fluency - Rules for Scoring What is a word read correctly? What is an Error? What is not Incorrect? Score = WRC/Errors Practice Oral Reading Fluency Passages Median Words Correct/ Median Errors ** Score immediately
CBM Reading Maze GOM of Comprehension Administered whole class 3 minutes – timed, stopwatch vs. wall clock Students circle correct choice The dog barked (in, at, is) the cat – Cover Sheet Slash / through incorrect responses Maze Score = total number of corrects/errors Prorating: pg.16
Next Steps How does the benchmark assessment data fit into the PLC conversation? What does the benchmark assessment data tell us?
