Effective Interventions at Every Tier
At each level of the Classworks Tiered Instructional Model, students are engaged in meaningful instruction, assessments measure growth and progress, and reporting provides formative and longitudinal data for informed decision-making. Teachers and academic support teams have the capacity to deliver the right instruction to make every student successful. Classworks screeners have received the highest reliability ranking from the National Center for Response to Intervention.
Tier 1: Universal
All children in the general education classroom receive high-quality instruction and universal screening. At Tier One, Classworks offers rich, standards-based instruction for all students, including project-based learning focused on college and career readiness for the 21st century. Universal Screeners track longitudinal growth for all students and identify struggling students for possible intervention.
Tier 2: Targeted
Struggling learners are provided with interventions at increasing levels of intensity to accelerate their rate of learning. At Tier Two, students receive additional time for targeted instruction focused on their areas of need. Assessments further identify deficit skills, and students use research-proven instruction to practice concepts. Students receive additional time for targeted instruction to get back on track with their peers. Progress is tracked through reporting of skills mastered.
Tier 3: Intensive
Students receive intensive, one-on-one tutoring and ongoing analysis of progress. Instruction is often customized by learning style to maximize results. The combination of increased instructional time and skill building at lower levels accelerates learning. Curriculum-based Measurement (CBM) probes offer weekly progress monitoring.
