This IRIS Star Legacy Module, first in a series of two, overviews data-based individualization and provides information about adaptations for intensifying and individualizing instruction. Developed in collaboration with the IRIS Center and the CEEDAR Center, this resource is designed for individuals who will be implementing intensive interventions (e.g., special education teachers, reading specialists, interventionists).
Implementation Guidance and Considerations
This IRIS Star Legacy Module, the second in a series on intensive intervention, offers information on making data-based instructional decisions. Specifically, the resource discusses collecting and analyzing progress monitoring and diagnostic assessment data. Developed in collaboration with the IRIS Center and the CEEDAR Center, this resource is designed for individuals who will be implementing intensive interventions (e.g., special education teachers, reading specialists, interventionists).
These two modules from the IRIS Center introduce users to progress monitoring in reading and mathematics. Progress monitoring is a type of formative assessment in which student learning is evaluated to provide useful feedback about performance to both learners and teachers. Because the overall progress monitoring process is almost identical for any subject area, the content in the two modules is very similar.
This module was adapted from a series of training modules developed by the National Center on Intensive Intervention (NCII) and is aimed at district or school teams involved in the initial planning for using data-based individualization (DBI) as a framework for providing intensive intervention in academics and behavior. The audience for this module may include school teams supporting academic intervention and progress monitoring in middle school mathematics.
This collection contains modules that can be used for professional development for middle school leaders, teachers, interventionists and instructional coaches to build their capacity to students who require intervention in mathematics. Basic Facts and Computations. Building Fluency and Conceptual Understanding: Middle School Level Connecting Intervention and Core Instruction. Instructional Strategies to Bridge Skills that Lead to Success: Middle School Level
This module is designed for interventionists, special educators, and general educators to review instructional strategies that students with mathematics difficulties need to be successful in both core instruction and intervention. Students with mathematics difficulties may make progress in intervention but still struggle in core because there is often not a bridge or support to show how the intervention connects to core. This module addresses these needs and identifies how all teachers need to support generalization and build upon mathematics trajectories for students to be successful.
This collection contains modules that can be used for professional development for elementary leaders, teachers, interventionists and instructional coaches to build their capacity to support students who require mathematics intervention.
The purpose of this module is to review how to implement the Early Numeracy Intervention, a validated intervention program that can be used for Tier 2 math intervention, or as an intensive intervention platform within DBI.
The purpose of this module is to focus on the importance of fractions, including the prerequisite skills. Fractions have been cited as a key skill that students need in order to be more successful in advanced mathematics skills, including algebra. Fractions are a necessary skill to be included as part of tiered interventions for students as early as grade 3.
This module is focused on the foundational skills of basic facts and computations across elementary grade levels. This module reviews the math trajectories that lead to long-term success and mastery of facts. Mastery of facts will lead to deeper understanding of facts in order to complete multi-step computations.
