Title: More than the sum of its parts: a multiple case study on the implementation of RTI in five sites
Author: Tackett, Kathryn Klingler
Abstract: Using a multiple -gating procedure , 5 research sites (3 elementary and 2 middle schools ) were identified as implementing a Response to Intervention (RTI ) framework . This study uses a multiple case study design to describe the RTI implementation in reading at these 5 sites . Findings suggest that the sites studied are utilizing a hybrid model (a combination of standard treatment protocol and problem solving models ) for developing and assigning reading interventions . The five sites implemented critical components of RTI (universal screening , progress monitoring , scientifically -based core curriculum , and a multi -tiered system of interventions ) similarly , despite differences in campus -level variables . However , no site implemented a process for assessing the fidelity of implementation of the RTI framework . They also followed state and /or district guidelines on the use of RTI data in special education eligibility decisions .
