Interviews as RtI Tools
Hodges, Thomas E.; Rose, Terry D.; Hicks, April D.
Teaching Children Mathematics, v19 n1 p30-36 Aug 2012
With the implementation of Response to Intervention (RtI) throughout the United States and the strong evidence that validates the use of RtI as a way of supporting struggling students, teachers need ways to understand and reach tier 2 students within their classrooms. One approach to gaining a better understanding of students' misconceptions is through the use of diagnostic interviews. Some educators have used diagnostic interviews as a way of informing instruction and improving questioning techniques; others have used interviews to address specific deficiencies in computation. The purposes for conducting and discussing diagnostic interviews in this article are for the teacher to better understand the misconceptions of a group of third-grade students whom she has identified as struggling with multiplication as well as for the authors to develop questioning techniques, remediation plans, and future assessment strategies for classroom use.
