Response to

The RTI model provides early help to children who are having difficulty learning. CTB products support the RTI model through universal screening, ongoing progress monitoring, and individualized instruction.


The purpose of RTI models is to provide meaningful and accurate identification of students who are struggling with learning, ensure each student receives high-quality instruction, and deliver every opportunity for students to be successful. By linking assessment and instruction throughout a multi-level prevention RTI model, educators receive a framework for data-based decision making. Effective screening and ongoing progress monitoring can help improve student outcomes by appropriately identifying students who might benefit from targeted intervention.

Effective RTI solutions include:

  • Universal screening assessments for use in the regular classroom alongside core instruction
  • Predictive or diagnostic assessments help support high-quality instruction and uncover early opportunities for intervention
  • Progress monitoring assessments that can be quickly and frequently administered to determine student strengths and areas for targeted intervention
  • Instructional resources that can be assigned based on individual student assessment results and used to deliver tailored intervention specific to each student’s instructional need
  • Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM) and resources for intensive intervention to support the goals of a successful RTI model
  • Online tutoring for to help students improve writing skills across different content areas, which is linked to better overall performance in school
  • Professional development for teachers, principals, and other educators to support a team-based multi-level prevention system
