A Strong Connection:

The Importance of Assessment to Response To Intervention

A well-functioning RTI program uses reading assessments to address and meet the needs of students.

There are four functions of assessment used in an RTI system: screening, diagnosis, progress monitoring and outcome measurement. Our district does a great job of utilizing all four purposes of assessment by using AIMSweb and the Serravallo Protocol as integral parts of our RTI program.
