Background/unmet need

Many elementary schools are implementing a response to intervention (RTI) instructional framework. School leadership teams typically focus on meeting the needs of individual at-risk students and are often unable to organize student data to monitor how well the campus RTI model is working.

Invention Description

The Campus Response to Intervention Progress Monitoring Tool (RTI-PMT) is a cross-platform web-based app that helps campus leaders monitor progress in meeting campus goals to prevent learning difficulties in classrooms. The RTI-PMT lets campus leaders see, in real-time, how many students are at-risk, how resources are being used to provide them with intervention, and which teachers or grade levels need additional support. Using the tool over the course of an academic year allows campus leaders to identify areas where additional support is needed and to communicate progress towards achieving year-end goals with stakeholders.
