  Before grouping your students around the 5 ELIGIBLE CONTENT described above, it is IMPORTANT to first review the other ELIGIBLE CONTENT
                                            Examine the completed Item Analysis for your class.
  within the ASSESSMENT ANCHOR for that ELIGIBLE CONTENT.
4 From the item analysis, identify students who could be           EC 1.            EC 2.           EC 3.            EC 4.           EC 5.
  grouped for targeted instruction for the 5 ELIGIBLE
  CONTENT (and the other related ELIGIBLE
  CONTENT for that ASSESSMENT ANCHOR)
  identified in item 3 above.




5 What other data would be valuable to have in developing your groups?



              Use the RTI SYSTEM to answer questions 6-9 below.
6 How would you identify the "bubble" students-- those
  students scoring just above and just below the
  proficient and basic categories?

7 For the students identified scoring just below the basic
  level, list the eligible content for any missed items
  which they had in common. What can you do to help
  these students move up to the next level?

8 For the students identified scoring just below the
  proficiency level, list the eligible content for any
  missed items which they had in common. What can
  you do to help these students move up to the next
  level?
9 For the students identified scoring just below the
  advanced level, list the eligible content for any missed
  items which they had in common. What can you do to
  help these students move up to the next level?
