Get valuable insights on MTSS/RTI
With the right data system, MTSS/RTI becomes what we all want it to be: an impactful investment in supporting students in the ways that they need, when they need it. With Schoolytics, you can finally see which students are in which MTSS tiers, track which interventions are happening for which students, and connect those interventions to student outcomes. With this information, you can make better decisions for individual students and for your whole organization.
Our platform offers an end-to-end MTSS solution
For MTSS, students must be identified and tagged in a system of record. Schoolytics can pull any tag data from your SIS, or even a spreadsheet.
Schoolytics allows users to enter and log intervention data in a flexible way. Goals and plans for students can be added and shared across stakeholders.
Schoolytics helps you combine data from multiple sources (SIS, LMS, assessments) to find out if a student is meeting their intervention goals.
At a high level, administrators must determine if an intervention is worth investing in. Schoolytics dashboards will give you this information.
Good intervention management is comprised of four key pillars
MTSS is formed of a complex web of moving parts. Students, teachers, parents/guardians, intervention specialists, and the district Student Services team all have important roles to play in delivering services to students and the impact those services have. At the heart of MTSS are four critical components that serve as the foundation for your staff to executive a strong intervention strategy across your district or school site. Schoolytics can support your team in bolstering each pillar.
Data is of course a fundamental piece of MTSS implementation. With Schoolytics, you can connect the dots across attendance, homework, and assessment scores.
With its CRM-like functionality, Schoolytics lets you drill down into an individual student profile, going deep into item-level scores, standards mastery, and homework behavior.
Equity is about giving every student what they need to thrive. Done well, MTSS is one way to ensure personalized support for your students that meets them where they are.
Every district and school has their own nuanced version of MTSS. Schoolytics is the only platform capable of addressing your unique needs with respect to MTSS tracking.
Why data specifically matters so much for MTSS
Data is the foundation upon which effective MTSS implementation rests. Informed decision-making is at the heart of this framework, and data-driven techniques provide the necessary insights to identify students who require additional support, monitor progress, and evaluate the effectiveness of interventions. Here are several key reasons why data is essential in MTSS:
Identification and Early Intervention: By collecting and analyzing various types of data, such as formative assessments, benchmark tests, attendance records, and behavioral observations, educators can identify students who are struggling early on. This enables timely and targeted interventions to prevent further academic, social, or emotional setbacks. Data empowers educators to intervene proactively, potentially mitigating long-term consequences.
Differentiation and Individualization: Students possess unique learning styles, strengths, and challenges. Data allows educators to gain a holistic understanding of each student's needs, enabling personalized instruction and interventions. By utilizing data-driven insights, educators can differentiate their teaching strategies, resources, and support services, optimizing the learning environment for every student.
Progress Monitoring and Feedback: Regular data collection and analysis allow educators to monitor students' progress over time. This provides an opportunity to assess the effectiveness of interventions, make necessary adjustments, and provide timely feedback to students, parents, and colleagues. Tracking student growth helps educators identify trends, patterns, and areas for improvement, ultimately enhancing instructional practices.
Evidence-Based Decision-Making: Data empowers educators to make evidence-based decisions regarding instruction, intervention, and resource allocation. By critically analyzing data, educators can identify effective practices and evidence-based strategies that have proven successful with similar student populations. This ensures that decisions are grounded in objective evidence rather than assumptions or personal biases.
Collaborative Problem-Solving: Data promotes collaboration among educators, administrators, and support staff. By sharing and discussing data, stakeholders can work together to address systemic challenges, refine instructional practices, and allocate resources effectively. Collaborative problem-solving fosters a culture of continuous improvement, where data-driven decision-making becomes an integral part of the educational ecosystem.
