Paved Road – I know about it and use it sometimes

Yellow Brick Road – I know it, use it and could teach this class
3. Share what is on your post it note with the group in your corner

and Analysis
 Identify students early.
 Ensure that students’ difficulties are not due to a
lack of alignment between the instruction,
curriculum, environment, and learner (I.C.E.L.).
 Modify instruction and implement evidenced-based
interventions based on individual needs.
 Make informed decisions about what resources are
needed to ensure student success.

Data types used within the MTSS
model
Four purposes for assessment within MTSS:
1) Screening: identify students at risk for academic
difficulty
2) Diagnostic: provide an in-depth, reliable
assessment of targeted skills
3) Progress monitoring: determine whether the student
is responsive to given instruction
4) Outcome: student demonstrates accepted level of
mastery

Main Uses:
◦ Determine students' progress toward
important and meaningful goals
◦ Make timely decisions about changes to
instruction so that students will meet
those goals
◦ Aid in instructional planning.

Common Core defines the “what students are expected to
know” of Tier 1 at each grade level.
Use Universal Screeners and Diagnostic Tools to find
specifically where students are struggling (or accelerating) in
the context of Common Core.
Use Progress Monitoring Tools and data to determine how
students are responding to instruction and intervention.
