Response to Intervention is all about assessing each student individually and providing targeted intervention at their level—whatever it may be. Students take diagnostic exams and then complete leveled instruction to help them master each and every concept. Consistent progress monitoring via a Shmoop Classroom allows teachers and parents to monitor student work and provide extra resources as needed. Let's dive in!
Getting Started at a Glance
The RTI for ELA and Math will look the same whether you are a teacher or a student. Be sure to click the "Product Tour" button where we show you the ropes (see bottom right corner of the image below). The "Product Tour" button is a great quick reference guide.
Taking the Benchmark/Diagnostic
The key difference between Math and ELA RTI is the ELA version has multiple diagnostics. One for each skill area. Math only has one benchmark covering all skill areas. In any case, once the benchmark/diagnostics are complete each skill area will populate with a color progress bar indicating the user's current progress in each skill for both RTI programs.
What to do after the Benchmark/Diagnostics
The user now has the option to either click "see skills" or "practice". This is where smaller skill mastery quizzes, introduction videos, and mini-lessons live. If the user clicks "see skills" they are given the option to pick a specific skill. If the user clicks "practice" we will pick something relevant for that user to work through. As the user gets questions correct the difficulty increases until the skill is mastered. The end goal is to master all skills.
