STATEMENT OF PURPOSEThe purpose of this research is to help develop a better understanding of how RTI (Response to Intervention) is impacting student achievement on the MAP standardized test as well as meeting student proficiency. Students are graded on a below basic, basic, proficient, and advanced rubric for both math and communication arts.
STATEMENT OF RESEARCH METHODOLOGYData will be collected from many different areas. Response to Intervention data for the cooperating school district will be pulled from the AIMSweb software package. This program is used to store weekly intervention progress on students that have fallen into the intervention category. Students placed in these groups are not currently performing on grade level based on district benchmark assessments. Data will be collected to see if students that are receiving interventions are truly making adequate progress.
ANTICIPATED RISKS AND BENEFITSNo further risk than would be experienced in everyday life. Benefits would include being able to share results with other educators and modify student interventions based on achievement levels.
SUBJECT SELECTIONData will be analyzed for approximately 6-10 students. Data used in this study will be information gathered on former students. The data being collected will be from stored data of students in grades 1-5.
