This synopsis, published in 2007, highlights key findings from a synthesis of research on interventions for struggling math students. Baker, Gersten, and Lee (2002) synthesized findings from 28 years of research on interventions for students struggling in learning math. Access this Resource
This second edition of the Effective Instruction for Adolescent Struggling Readers professional development module is a revision of the 2008 version and presents information based on findings from Interventions for Adolescent Struggling Readers: A Meta-Analysis with Implications for Practiceand recommendations discussed in Improving Adolescent Literacy: Effective Classroom and Intervention Practices: A Practice Guide from IES.
This professional development module, consisting of a PowerPoint presentation and a presenter's manual, describes progress monitoring, explains common techniques often mistaken for progress monitoring, and discusses application of progress monitoring in mathematics at both the elementary and secondary grade levels. It also provides resources for additional information. View the module
This publication, published in 2012, provides research-based guidance that reflects "best practices" for intensifying instruction in reading and mathematics for students with significant learning difficulties in K-12, including students with disabilities. It can also be used as a resource for instructional specialists and special education teachers who are searching for broad guidelines on the design and delivery of intensive interventions.
This toolkit provides activities and resources to assist practitioners in designing and delivering intensive interventions in reading and mathematics for K–12 students with significant learning difficulties and disabilities. Grounded in research, this toolkit is based on the Center on Instruction’s Intensive Interventions for Students Struggling in Reading and Mathematics: A Practice Guide, and includes the following resources:
This IRIS Star Legacy Module explores the basic principles of behavior and the importance of discovering the reasons that students engage in problem behavior. The steps to conducting a functional behavioral assessment (FBA) and developing a behavior plan are described.
This module explores in detail the assessment procedures integral to RTI. It also outlines how to use progress monitoring data to determine if a student is meeting the established performance criteria or if more intensive intervention is needed.
This module discusses how progress monitoring can affect the academic outcomes of students, and it demonstrates how to implement curriculum-based measurement with a classroom of students.
This three part series of IRIS STAR Legacy Modules includes information for selecting, implementing, and monitoring evidence-based practices.
The CEEDAR Center has designed a Course Enhancement Module (CEM) on MTSS for Mathematics which is designed to support participants in gaining an understanding of assessment tools and intervention practices that can be integrated within a comprehensive evidence-based math intervention program. The multi-part module covers universal, supplemental, and intensive supports including supports for students with intensive mathematics needs. The CEM, particularly as it relates to intensive intervention, includes content adapted from NCII.
