RTI Implementation Fidelity Resources

RTI Implementation Fidelity Rubric

The Response to Intervention (RTI) Fidelity Rubric is for use by schools to support fidelity of RTI implementation. The rubric is aligned with the essential components of RTI and the infrastructure that is necessary for successful implementation. It is accompanied by a worksheet with guiding questions and score points for use with a school’s RTI leadership team.

Literacy Implementation Fidelity Assessment

The Planning and Evaluation Tool for Effective Schoolwide Reading Programs-Revised (PET-R) was developed by the Institute for the Development of Educational Achievement College of Education at the University of Oregon. It is a self-perception survey tool designed to give elementary schools (grades K - 2) a data baseline for determining if the reading programs and services being provided are effective.  
 

School-Wide Evaluation & Planning Tool for Middle School Literacy

The School-Wide Evaluation & Planning Tool for Middle School Literacy was developed by the Institute for the Development of Educational Achievement College of Education at the University of Oregon.  It is a self-perception survey tool designed to give late elementary and middle schools (grades 3-8) a data baseline for determining if the reading programs and services being provided are effective.  

RTI Elementary Literacy Handbook

The RTI Literacy Handbook for Grades K-5 was developed by the Arkansas Department of Education.  It is designed to be used by a school team to establish an RTI team, develop a purpose, identify assessment tools, define core instructional practices, use data-based decision-making, develop  an action plan, and communicate with guardians around the RTI process.

Behavior Self-Assessment Survey

The PBIS Self-Assessment Survey is used by school staff for initial and annual assessments of effective behavior support systems. The survey examines the status and need for improvement of four behavior support systems: (a) school-wide discipline systems, (b) non-classroom management systems (e.g., cafeteria, hallway, playground), (c) classroom management systems, and (d) systems for individual students engaging in chronic problem behaviors.  

Tiered Fidelity Inventory

The Tiered Fidelity Inventory is a valid and reliable tool to measure the extent to which schools are implementing the core features on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports.  The Tiered Fidelity Inventory is divided into Tier I (universal features), II (targeted features) and III (intensive features).
