The Integrity Rubric for RTI Implementation

The RTI Essential Components Integrity Rubric and the RTI Essential Components Integrity Worksheet were developed by the National Center on Response to Intervention and are for use by individuals who are responsible for monitoring school-level fidelity of RTI implementation. The rubric is aligned with the essential components of RTI.
This tool is used to rate the implementation of Response to Intervention. It can be used in two ways:
· by a school team to self-assess
· by an outside, third party evaluator
Ratings for each item included in the rubric are to be recorded on the worksheet.
If completing as a self-assessment, your team should discuss and agree on the ratings for each area within the rubric. When you have agreed on the rating, click on the number of stars appropriate for the rating and a comment box will appear for that content area. Insert relevant comments that contributed to your rating. As you complete this over time and look back at previous years’ ratings, these comments will be a critical part of the conversation in moving your implementation forward. Please be specific in your comments. Your comments should provide evidence that supports the rating provided.
If an outside evaluator is completing the rubric, they will engage your building personnel in interviews and discussions (group and/or individual) regarding processes and documents that support your implementation of RTI. There may also be observations that occur as a part of this process.
Ratings for implementation are from 1-5. Supportive information is provided for the ratings of 1, 3, and 5. If a building’s implementation is better than a “1” but not quite a “3” then you would assign a rating of “2” on the rubric. Similarly, if a building’s implementation is better than a “3” but not quite a “5”, you would assign a rating of “4”.
