Blondin, Carolyn A.; Voils, Kyle; Galyon, Charles E.; Williams, Robert L.
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v26 n2 p61-83 2015
Concepts from the Response-to-Intervention (RTI) Model were used to promote a successful course outcome for students at risk for making low grades in an entry-level college course. The first exam served as a universal screener to identify students who could potentially benefit from RTI assistance. The researchers developed a tiered coaching arrangement targeting homework accuracy and exam scores. Homework accuracy was used as a progress-monitoring measure. A multiple-baseline design across participants showed that homework accuracy increased from baseline to treatment phases. Exam gaps between participant exam scores and class averages decreased following treatment implementation for a majority of participants.
