Date: April 3, 2009

The National Center on Response to Intervention has released a Screening Tools Chart.  The chart provides ratings on the technical adequacy of screening tools used within an RtI context and can be very useful to school districts as they consider the use of screening tools.  The tools were rated against five technical standards: (1) classification accuracy; (2) generalizability; (3) reliability; (4) validity; and, (5) disaggregated reliability, validity, and classification data for diverse populations.  Additional information on the efficiency of the tools and how to implement them can be found on the chart as well.  Go to and the chart can be found in the Tools/Interventions pull-down menu.
