The course enhancement module (CEM) on Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) in Mathematics is designed to assist faculty at institutions of higher education (IHEs) and professional development providers in the training and development of all educators. This CEM provides information and resources about how to prepare teacher and leader candidates or current practitioners to create effective instructional environments for all students, including students with disabilities and their nondisabled classmates.
Through this CEM, participants will learn about assessment tools and intervention practices that should be integrated into a comprehensive, evidence-based math intervention program within the Response to Intervention (RTI) framework. The assessment tools and intervention practices are research-based and involve multiple levels of support (including schoolwide, classwide, small-group and individual levels of support) using data-based decision making. As participants gain knowledge about how to use these tools and practices effectively, they will become proficient in using mathematics data to guide intervention decisions, matching the academic intervention to the specific skill deficit and the intensity of a student’s needs.
