Every student is unique, and every student learns in their own way, at their own pace, across subjects. As an educator with an already full plate, it can be tricky to ensure you are identifying when intervention is needed so students can remain on track and not fall behind in their learning journey. That’s where leaning on Edulastic to help with your RTI education strategy can be a lifesaver!
What is RTI education?
RTI stands for “response to intervention.” It’s targeted teaching to specific groups of students based on knowledge level. The goal of RTI education is to identify students who are potentially falling behind, so you can intervene and provide support.
How does Edulastic power the RTI education process?
Digital assessment can play a vital role in the process because it:
- Helps identify when and where students are struggling
- Tracks standard mastery and allows teachers and schools to pinpoint areas of focus
- Enables educators to adapt instruction and give students what they need to help bring them up to speed
- Offers real-time reports and instant feedback, which help teachers address misconceptions right away
- Helps prevent students from falling behind, especially in classes where the learning and concepts build upon each other
“Using Edulastic tests allowed us to identify which of the standards our schools were struggling with the most,” says Matt McGowan, Technology Integration and Math Specialist at Paragould School District in Arkansas. From there, they could closely monitor progress and provide timely and successful intervention for individual students.
