Date: April 23, 2010

The High School Tiered Interventions Initiative (HSTII), a collaborative effort among the National Center on Response to Intervention, the National High School Center, and the Center on Instruction is hosting a webinar on May 12 from 2:00-3:30 p.m. central time. 

In this webinar, Dr. Kristen McMaster will provide an overview of Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM), including the purpose, a brief description of research, and a demonstration of how CBM data can be used to monitor student progress.  She will briefly review CBM tools that are available for high schools in reading, mathematics, and the content areas, and provide instructions for developing CBM tools for use at the high school level.  Following Dr. McMaster's presentation of CBM in high school, representatives from Walla Walla High School in Walla Walla, Washington, will discuss how they have monitored school progress as part of their tiered intervention model.  This presentation is suitable for anyone interested in the research and practitioner perspectives of RtI and progress monitoring at the high school level.

To participate in the conversation, you may submit questions before and after the webinar by emailing them to: rtiwebinars@air.org.  HSTII staff will be available to answer follow-up questions until Wednesday, May 19, 2010.
