Tiers of Instruction
jaw & kew 8/2013
Benefits to Students
Eliminate “wait to fail”
Intervene at the earliest indication of student need
Potentially reduce the number of special education referrals
Distinguish between students whose achievement problems
are due to a learning disability vs. students whose
achievement problems are linked to other issues – i.e. lack of
prior instruction
• Progress monitoring techniques provide more instructionally
relevant information than traditional assessments
jaw & kew 8/2013
Benefits to Students
• Collaboration of school staff including the
administration, classroom teacher, basic skills
teachers, special education teacher,
psychologist, etc. All share the responsibility
of helping each child succeed.
• Specific instructional strategies found to
benefit particular students are employed –
eliminates the “one size fits all” approach.

• In order to implement RTI correctly we need
benchmark testing.
• Professional development is key to the success
of RTI.
