In the generative classroom, teachers provide well-designed learning environments that result in the combination, recombination, and reorganization of repertoires such that new untaught repertoires are likely to occur. One component that can contribute to such generativity is Precision Teaching (PT), a frequency building instructional intervention. A multi-level assessment system, combined with evidence-based practices of teaching and learning can result in systematically accelerated student progress in mathematics thus enhancing RtI frameworks. Additionally, PT contributes to nourishing a Multi-tiered System of Support (MTSS) implementation by creating a common language between and amongst students, teachers, families, and administrators. In this unique blended system, the data collected by administrators, teachers, and students are continuously assessed and used to inform instruction and teacher training needs. A graphic presentation of these data on the Standard Celeration Chart (SCC) guides goal setting and interventions. This paper presents a case study detailing the rapid progress of a class of students during one academic school year using PT.
