Aligning Interventions with Core How to meet student needs without creating curricular chaos
Systems in place Strong core program, taught with fidelity and monitored Screening tools and data Progress monitoring tools and data Teaming with data based decisions making Intervention plan/choices Individual problem solving
Placement meeting When should this meeting occur? 3 x a year after screening data collected Who should be at the meeting? Principal, classroom teachers, specialists, others What data should be brought to this meeting? Screening data, In-program data, other normed assessment data, OAKS
Which students receive interventions? Decision Rules Based on data Based on resources Lowest 20% - 30% or All students below benchmark
60 2 nd Grade Students Lowest 20% Lowest 25% All below and well below benchmark OrRTI
Lowest 20% All High Risk Lowest 25% Decision Rules guide placement in interventions
Matching data with intervention Screening Data Interventio n Program Instructional need
How do we make this match? 1. What skills do we need to strengthen/improve in the student? 2. How big is the deficit? 3. What interventions do we have that will support this need? 4. How do we implement the plan?
What skills do we need to strengthen/improve in the student?
DIBELS next – instructional recommendation National percentile and local percentile. Also benchmarked to recommendations as compared to research-based standards Below benchmark (Yelllow, low) Well below benchmark (Red, significantly low)
easy CBM As compared to other students Low 11 – 20 percentile Significantly low is below the 10 th percentile
What interventions do we have that will support this need? What tools do we have?
Things to consider Placement – some interventions have placement tests or pretest/posttest Resources – staff time, training and schedule Student group and size Time needed for program Needs of the students – time of day, behavior
Diagnostic assessment Quick phonics screener Curriculum-Based Evaluation DIBELS booklets error patterns Running Records Talk time - What else do you use to validate your screening data?
Ensure that the intervention matches core Not all intervention programs are created equal – some are more intensive than others. Become familiar with each program Fragile learners need the more repetition on skills taught in core Students need to make connections between core and intervention
Ensure that the intervention matches the core Consider the time needed for the student to make progress Choosing a program that teaches different sounds or skills could cause more confusion for our students
What does this look like? A fourth grade student who is an accurate reader, but needs to increase fluency What are our options? Read Naturally Core materials What questions would you ask? Which would you choose? Why?
