RTI is designed to provide all students with academic and behavioral interventions. As a student’s educational needs increase, the frequency and method of the educational intervention changes to help the student gain success in the classroom. Two important components of RTI include universal screening and progress monitoring. These data collection tools, coupled with team problem solving, are used regularly to determine an appropriate intervention for a student and whether that intervention is having a positive impact on the student’s learning. The RTI process can be used to distinguish between an ineffective instructional approach and a student’s learning disability, thereby removing blame from students for their educational failures and placing responsibility for learning on the learning environment.
