DBI Implementation Rubric and Interview

DBI Implementation Rubric and Interview

Resource Type
Developed By
National Center on Intensive Intervention

The DBI Implementation Rubric and the DBI Implementation Interview are intended to support monitoring of school-level implementation of data-based individualization (DBI). The rubric is aligned with the essential components of DBI and the infrastructure that is necessary for successful implementation in Grades K–6. It describes levels of implementation on a 1–5 scale across DBI components. The rubric is accompanied by the DBI Implementation Interview which includes guiding questions that may be used for a self-assessment or structured interview of a school’s DBI leadership team.

The rubric and interview document are developed around the following components:

  1. System Features
  2. Data and Decision Making
  3. Intervention
  4. DBI Process
  5. DBI Evaluation

These tools have been revised based on two years of use with NCII partner schools. Facilitators’ feedback resulted in new and refined items, additional sample interview questions, and an interview template that supports separate ratings for DBI implementation in reading, mathematics, and behavior.
