Struggling readers need instruction that accelerates learning and closes the gap. Typical growth is likely to be insufficient. Knowing typical and above typical growth rates at all skill levels is useful for selecting ambitious and attainable progress-monitoring goals. Goal setting, progress monitoring, and evaluating growth are essential elements of RtI, particularly when identifying dyslexia and other reading disabilities. This workshop explores a tool for setting goals, evaluating growth, and evaluating system change to improve reading.
ASSESSMENT: Examine issues related to the assessment of dyslexia and how assessment results can inform the selection of academic interventions.
TEACHING/INSTRUCTION/INTERVENTION: Examine critical issues regarding the involvement of teachers in the implementation of Response to Intervention (RTI).
