Teaming & Data-Based Decision Making
Item 16. Screening data are used to identify at-risk students who will receive interventions
Interventions are more effective when they are targeted and matched to the specific needs of the student. Rather than providing a comprehensive intervention that covers a broad array of skills, interventions are designed to fill specific gaps that a student might have. In this way, it’s important that we are able to diagnostically identify those gaps and provide interventions that target those gaps.
