Analyzing Education Interventions: Making the Best Choice for Your Students

This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 9
  • Skill Level: Introduction
  • Session 4: Assessment and Intervention in an RTI Framework

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. understand how the Nebraska MTSS Program Comparison chart may support intervention selection and evaluation.
  2. evaluate the empirical evidence and program components of a variety of academic, behavioral, and social–emotional interventions.
  3. assess current interventions implemented at their districts and evaluate their empirical evidence and fit for their students.


Evidence-based practices (EBPs) are critical for improving student outcomes. Although educators understand the importance EBPs, many struggle to select EBPs due to lack of awareness of current evidence-based interventions or time needed to evaluate intervention research. The proposed presentation will describe a free and easy to use tool, Nebraska Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (NeMTSS) Program Comparison Chart, designed to facilitate the understanding of intervention components and their empirical evidence and guide education intervention selection.
