Many school systems are adopting three-tiered models of prevention (e.g., Response to Intervention and Positive Behavior Support) to support an increasingly diverse student population (Sugai, Horner, & Horner, 2002). A central feature of these models is that data are monitored to determine responsiveness. We offer this session as a guide for using multiple sources of data to support students with reading and behavioral challenges. Specifically, we provide illustrations of how to use an academic screener (Curriculum-Based Measurement; CBM) in combination with behavior screeners (Systematic Screening for Behavior Disorders [Walker & Severson, 1992] and the Student Risk Screening Scale [Drummond, 1994]) to identify students who were non-responsive to the primary prevention efforts. We will provide practical information on how to conduct these screenings and analyze the information to identify students for targeted supports.
