RtI Screening Description
The first level of data collected in the RTI process comes from universal school-wide screenings. The Southampton Township School District is using Renaissance STAR360 as the universal screening in the areas of language arts / literacy and mathematics. STAR360 is administered to all students in grades K-8, is practical and efficient to administer, with its goal to identify students who may require further assessments and interventions.
Our district administers STAR360 three times per year (fall, winter, and spring), and the data from these assessments helps to guide instruction through the three tiers of the RTI process. Teachers also utilize STAR360 as a means to monitor student progress between the benchmark assessments.
