         Essential Questions
 What are components of math RtI?
 What is the Delta Math RtI Program?
 How will we screen students for readiness?
    Components of Math RtI
 Screen everyone
 Identify struggling students
 Provide interventions
 Monitor progress
 Screen again to measure impact
Preventing Failure
         Students struggling with
          mathematics may benefit
          from early interventions
          aimed at improving their
          mathematics ability and
          ultimately preventing
          subsequent failure.
Assessment on Current Standards
  Common assessments are not limited to be given only
   2 or 3 times per year.
  Each district can identify or develop assessments for
   “on grade level” standards to support their adopted

 Team Time: Focused Discussion
  Reflect on your current district common assessments.
     Do each type of common assessment exist?
     Do teachers discuss the data to inform future decisions?

      Anticipated Learning Gaps
 If approximately 85% of all
  children successfully meet each
                                      Tier 3
  grade level benchmark.
                                      ≈ 3-5%
 Then, approximately 15% of the
  students begin the next grade       Tier 2
  level with learning gaps.          ≈ 10-15%
 Another type of common
  assessment is needed to identify    Tier 1
  student readiness.                  ≈ 85%
   Delta Math Grade Level
    Readiness Screeners
Assessment on Previous Standards

Team Time: Focused Discussion
 How are the fall, winter and spring Delta Math
 readiness screeners intended to be used?

   DELTA MATH Mission
    We provide educators with
     tools and protocols that
identify targeted learning gaps and
respond to individual student needs.

                     IES Practice Guide: Recommendation #2, 2009
          Aligned to the CCSS

Team Time: Focused Discussion
 What would a classroom utopia look like if all
 students came ready to learn based on the Delta
 Math readiness standards?
    Readiness Screener Video
  Watch for each Delta Math
   readiness screener resources.
  Record observations and/or
   questions you would like to
   discuss after the video.

             Video Summary
 Program Guide A1 will be
  used to summarize the
  screening process captured
  during the video.

                               Step 1
 Follow the Script to guide
 students through each part of
 the screener.
   Provides time approximations
    for scheduling sessions.
   Also provides explicit direction
    for screener administration.
       What to say…
       What to do…includes wait time!
                         Step 2
 Administer and collect Part 1
 of the grade level readiness
   Classrooms provide a safe and
      familiar environment.
     Timed to measure efficiency.
     Workspace is provided to
      analyze student work.
     Answer boxes decrease transfer
      errors during Part 2.
     Store in student portfolios.
                                 Step 3
 Correct the timed facts
 problems included in grades 1,
 2, 3 and 4 before beginning part
 2 on the computer.
   Grades 1-3
       Addition and Subtraction
       Benchmark is 10 Correct in 1 min.
   Grade 4
       Multiplication and Division
       Benchmark is 10 Correct in 30 sec.
                           Step 4
 Login to answer conceptual and short computation
 problems during Part 2.
   Teachers read each problem from the grade level script.
   Scratch paper and pencils are permitted.
                         Step 5
 Hand back the completed Part 1 for
 students to transfer their answers.

                      Step 6
 Submit readiness screener data for instant analysis.
 Team Time: Focused Discussion
 Discuss your observations
  and/or questions.
 If your team still has
  unanswered questions,
  please write them down on
  sticky notes and place them
  in the parking lot.

 Please watch as we go live to
  demonstrate where to find each
  grade level script and Part 1.

Team Time: Focused Exploration
 Questions 1 and 2
   Practice finding grade level
    scripts and part 1’s.
 Questions 3, 4 and 5
   Explore components of scripts
