This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

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

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. describe how student performance feedback and collaborative goal setting supports student agency, self-efficacy, and academic motivation.
  2. implement a 6-step progress monitoring performance feedback and goal setting routine, immediately following academic progress monitoring.
  3. evaluate the effectiveness of a performance feedback and goal setting routine in terms of student self-efficacy, agency, and academic motivation.


Progress monitoring is an essential component of an RTI framework. However, there has been minimal attention to the active role that students play in understanding and improving their response to intervention. In this presentation we describe a six-step performance feedback and goal setting (PFGS) routine that can easily supplement typical progress monitoring procedures. We describe research-based practices to support student agency, self-efficacy, and academic motivation. Resources for implementing the routine and evaluating outcomes are provided.
