Although increasingly implemented in elementary and secondary education settings, research provides limited insight into practitioners' knowledge of Response-to-Intervention (RTI) at the secondary level. This paper presents descriptive findings from an exploratory survey of teachers that assessed the relationship between the grade level of teachers (n = 609), their exposure to RTI, and the implementation of practices associated with RTI (e.g., progress monitoring). Results underscore differences in the perception and implementation of RTI in elementary and secondary schools. Implications related to more clearly defining RTI at the secondary level are discussed.
