In this webinar Dr. Rebecca Zumeta Edmonds and Mike Jacobsen, director of assessment in RTI in Washington state's White River School district, discuss how the Center's implementation integrity rubric was used in Washington state to conduct an interview process that helped the state’s pilot sites evaluate their RTI implementation. The webinar highlights the rationale and purpose of this work, some prior efforts at evaluating pilot sites in the state, descriptions of the measurement tool that was developed, and the interview process in the reports that resulted. The webinar also details specifics of the implementation journey of the White River School district, one of the pilot sites in the state.

In this webinar, Dr. Sarah Powell an Associate Professor in the Department of Special Education at the University of Texas at Austin introduces a new free resource from NCII that can be used by faculty to develop or supplement coursework to ensure educators are prepared to support students with intensive math needs. The Intensive Intervention Math Course Content consists of eight modules covering a range of math related topics. Each module includes video lessons, activities, knowledge checks, practice-based opportunities, and more! In this webinar, Dr. Powell reviews the content available, discusses how it could be used as you develop courses, and answers questions that you might have.
