School-Level Factors and Core Versus Tier 2 CBM-R Growth

This session is from the NASP 2022 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 1,3
  • Skill Level: Advanced
  • Session 4: Assessment and Intervention in an RTI Framework

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. understand how school context may relate to instruction within MTSS tiers
  2. understand whether students’ oral reading fluency growth within core versus Tier 2 instruction depends on school context
  3. understand limitations of context-related variables in measuring school-level effects on student achievement


School-level factors may relate to student achievement within multitiered systems of support, though more research is needed in this area. In this study, we tested whether differences in triannual CBM-R growth rates of third graders who received typical core instruction or Tier 2 intervention varied across school-level variables, including the percentage eligible for free- or reduced-price lunch and school-level reading achievement. Practitioners and researchers attending the session will learn about the practical implications and limitations of our findings.
