  1. One More Piece of the RTI Puzzle: Zones of Growth for Students Receiving Tier 2 Instructional Supports Hank Fien, Ph.D. Center for Teaching and Learning October, 23, 2007

  2. Objectives • RTI: Not just for Tier 3 or SPED decision-making • Review Going from All to Each (GATE) Map • Moving from Systems to Students • Introduction to Zones of Growth and Data Analyses • Zones of Growth Case Example and Practice

  3. RTI Reality Check • RTI Will Fail, Unless… • Burns, M (2007) Communique • Using an RTI model to guide early reading instruction: Effects on identification rates for students learning disabilities • Torgesen, J. (2007) Florida Center for Reading Research at Florida State University Policy Brief

  4. Tier 2 Supports

  5. Is the Strategic System Healthy?

  6. School A: Is the Strategic System Healthy?Let’s look at the Oregon Norms. Not quite.

  7. Initiate Systems-level problem solving for Strategic System

  8. School B: Is the Strategic System Healthy?Let’s look at the Oregon Norms. Relatively, yes.

  9. Is the Strategic instructional support effective for EACH individual student? • No, it is effective for over 70 percent, but not all. • For the students not making adequate progress Initiate Preventative problem-solving, including diagnosing problem*, intervention modification, and short term goal setting ORplace student in Intensive support. • How should we set short term goals? What would adequate growth look like? What kind of growth would put the odds in the favor of strategic students to reach grade level goals? What kind of growth rates would significantly place a strategic student at risk for not reaching grade level goals? • Let’s look at Zones of Growth Analyses…

  10. Zones of Growth Analyses Based on Seven Factors • Fall Instructional Recommendation divided into 2 groups: High and Low (e.g. High and Low Strategic) • Fall ORF score range • Percentile range • Yearly growth rates • Weekly growth rates • Growth zone category (favorable, coin flip, unacceptable) • Probability of meeting grade level* criterion or for students with intensive needs, significantly reducing their risk

  11. Zones of Growth for 2nd Grade Students that Begin the Year with High and Low Benchmark Instructional Recommendations Note: Weekly growth rates based on 36 weeks of instruction from mid-September to mid-June

  12. Zones of Growth for 2nd Grade Strategic Students that Begin the Year with High and Low Strategic Instructional Recommendations Note: Weekly growth rates based on 36 weeks of instruction from mid-September to mid-June.

  13. Zones of Growth for 2nd Grade Students that Begin the Year with High and Low Intensive Instructional Recommendations Note:Weekly growth rates based on 36 weeks of instruction from mid-September to mid-June.
