Why MTSS?
• Gen Ed vs. Special Ed; “Academic” vs. “Behavior”
• Multiple initiatives with no integration
• Duplication of effort and resources

IPST FORM 1
History and Cumulative Review
Problem Analysis
Why is the Problem Occurring?
 First step in Problem
Solving is to gather
and review
information about
the “L” in ICEL. If the
teacher has a
concern about the
“Learner”, historical
information must be
documented.

IPST FORM 2
Parent/Guardian Contact and Staff Consultations
Problem Analysis
Why is the Problem Occurring?
 Parents play an integral
part in informing and
helping school personnel
know how to support the
student more effectively.
 Seeking staff
consultations helps the
classroom teacher
address the student’s
area of difficulty.

IPST FORM 3
Student’s teacher as observer
Classroom Observation
Problem Analysis
Why is the Problem Occurring?
 Gathering additional
information in the general
classroom setting
addressing ICEL which
focuses on the Instruction,
Curriculum, Environment,
and the Learner.
 This information helps the
team to determine what
factors enable the student
to learn.

IPST FORM 4
Third Party Observation
Classroom Observation
Problem Analysis
Why is the Problem Occurring?
 Successful problem
analysis requires the team
to look at multiple sources
of data.
 ICEL factors are
documented as well as the
relationship between the
student’s classroom
behavior and academic
performance.

IPST FORM 5
Academic Data Collection
Problem Analysis and Identification
Why is the Problem Occurring?
 Reviewing student
performance data and
comparing to peer groups
will determine the
magnitude of the academic
concern.
 This specific data assists the
team to identify or eliminate
concerns in Instruction and
Curriculum (ICEL).
Problem ID Review
Benchmark Peer Comparisons
Depicts an individual student problem. The
peer group is performing at or above
benchmark, while the target student is well
below.
Target student and the peer group are well below
benchmark. Therefore, it would be necessary to approach
the problem at a Tier 1 or class-wide level.

IPST FORM 6
ACADEMIC
Academic Problem Identification / Analysis / Hypothesis
Problem Identification/Analysis
Why is the Problem Occurring?
 The intent of the ICEL table on
this form is to review of all the
ICEL factors. It’s almost a
check and balance system to
ensure the focus is on the ICEL
factors and not just the learner.
 Keep in mind, when creating a
hypothesis, it is important to
determine if it is a skill deficit
or motivation deficit?
 Determining the point at which
the target student will come in
range of the expected rate of
progress.

IPST FORM 6
BEHAVIOR
Problem Behavior Identification / Analysis / Hypothesis
Problem Identification/Analysis
Why is the Problem Occurring?
 Same format at IPST Form 6
Academics but focuses on
the Behavior component.
 The intent of this form is to
guide the IPST to design
effective interventions.

Implementation Plan
What are We Going to do About It?
 Spending time designing a
quality intervention plan will
be most beneficial to the
student.
 The alignment between the
area of concern to the goal
statement, intervention plan
and ongoing progress
monitoring tool is crucial.

Analysis of Interventions and Recommendations
EVALUATE
Did it WORK?
 The IPST will utilize the rate
of progress data and post
intervention analysis to
make informed decisions
regarding the educational
needs of the student.
