2 Agenda Introductions MTSS Overview & Self Assessment Assessment & Data Analysis Implementation & Inquiry Process MTSS Resources 2

3 Discuss your understanding of RtI and MTSS. How are the terms currently being used by your organization? You local districts/schools?

4 Multi-Tiered System of Support MTSS is an integrated, multi-tiered system of instruction, assessment and intervention designed to meet the academic achievement and behavioral health needs of ALL STUDENTS. MTSS is meant to be embedded into the school improvement process to provide a framework for meeting the needs of ALL STUDENTS. 4

5 School-Wide System of Supports for Student Success Universal Intervention Core Instruction Differentiation All students Preventive 5% 15% Intensive Intervention Individualized, functional assessment, highly specific Targeted Intervention Supplemental, some students, reduce risk 80% 5

6 MTSS Not Regular Education Not Special Education Education

7 Instruction & then Interventions Scientifically research-based (peer reviewed & evidence based) Has a high probability of producing change for large numbers of students Is designed to be used in a standard manner across student populations Targeted assistance based on benchmark and screening data Administered by classroom teacher, specialized teacher, or external interventionist

8 Essential Elements 1. Implement effective instruction for all children 2. Intervene Early 3. Provide multi-tiered model of instruction and intervention 4. Utilize a collaborative problem solving model 5. Assure Research based core curriculum 8

9 Essential Elements 6. Implement research-based, valid interventions and instruction 7. Monitor progress to inform instruction 8. Use data to make instructional decisions 9. Use assessments for screening, diagnostics, and progress monitoring 10. Implement with fidelity 9

10 MTSS Cluster Areas 1. Instruction and Interventions (Tiers I, II, & III) 2. Problem Solving 3. Implementation of Evidence-based Practices 4. Data and Assessment 5. Stakeholder Engagement 10

13 13

14 MTSS Cluster Areas 5. Assure research based core curriculum (aligned with Michigan s state standards) 6. Implement evidence-based, valid interventions and instruction 10. Implement with fidelity 14

15 MTSS Cluster Areas 7. Monitor progress to inform instruction 8. Use data to make instructional decisions 9. Use assessments for universal screening, diagnostics, and progress monitoring 15

16 MTSS Cluster Areas 11. Engage parents and community (and students!) 16

17 Score Sheet Activity 17

18 Score Sheet Activity Using your score sheet, individually rate where you think your school is at with implementation of each essential element of MTSS with 1 = Not At All and 5 = Fully For the cluster areas with 3 elements added together, take the total score for all 3 and divide it by 3. Write this number in the box for later use. 18

19 How well is your system supporting these areas? Grab your clickers!

20 Instruction/Intervention: #1 Implement effective instruction for all learners #2 Intervene early #3 Provide a multi-tiered model of instruction and intervention 50% 1. Not at all Fully 6% 19% 19% 6% Not at all Fully

21 Problem Solving: #4 Utilize a collaborative problem solving model 1. Not at all Fully 6% 37% 26% 29% 3% Not at all Fully 21

22 Implementation Fidelity/Evidence-based Practices: #5 Assure a research-based core curriculum #6 Implement research/evidence-based, valid instruction/interventions #10 Implement with fidelity 65% 1. Not at all % 5. Fully 0% 9% 3% Not at all Fully 22

23 Data/Assessment: #7 Monitor student progress to inform instruction #8 Use data to make instructional decisions #9 Use assessments for universal screening, diagnostics, and progress monitoring 43% 1. Not at all Fully 3% 13% 33% 7% Not at all Fully 23

24 Stakeholder Engagement: #11 Engage parents and community 45% 1. Not at all 2. 30% Fully 9% 15% 0% Not at all Fully 24

25 Score Sheet Activity 25

26 Team Gap Analysis Activity Working with your team, use the Team Convergence/Divergence sheet to analyze the varying perspectives you hold on your implementation of MTSS. For each cluster area listed, take the highest score from your team and subtract the lowest score from your team. A higher number indicates a larger gap (divergence), while a lower number indicates more agreement (convergence). Use the questions below the table to guide your discussion around your team s perception data. 26

27 Data & Assessment

28 Assessment The difference between a formative and summative assessment has also been described as the difference between a physical and an autopsy 28

29 Three Assessment Types Universal Screening Progress Monitoring Diagnostic 29

30 Universal Screening Dip stick 3 times/year ALL STUDENTS System view of student progress Ability to drill down from the district level to the student level Data management and analysis is key! 30

31

32 Progress Monitoring Used to determine if level of instruction is working At risk students monitored every two weeks - most intensive needs students monitored weekly Short, probe assessments of reading fluency/mathematics - most common 32

33 Diagnostic What instruction does this student need? What is the student able to do their present level of performance? Administer assessment of concepts to determine the proper instructional format (whole class vs. small group) and instructional objectives 33

34 Data Use at Waverly Community Schools

43 Implementation

44 A poorly implemented program can lead to failure as easily as a poorly designed one. - Mihalic, Irwin, Fagan, Ballard & Elliott, 2004

45 What We Have from Statewide Implementation Nationally Full implementation with integrity takes 3-5 years. Integration of academic and behavior problem-solving is critical Level of implementation is directly related to student outcomes Level of adult readiness directly correlates to level of implementation Implementation is a district-wide systems change process Success of Tiers 2 and 3 determined by effectiveness of Tier 1 This HAS TO BE an all education initiative On-going evaluation is critical to implementation effectiveness
