The purpose of this project was to develop an introductory Response to Intervention training module that teachers, administrators, and instructional aides can understand and that will help them prepare for possible Response to Intervention implementation. Intended training participants have or work with general education and special education students who are in need of classroom and school wide interventions. Subjects for the pilot study were California State University Monterey Bay, Level 2- Education Specialist credential candidates. Data was also gathered from experts in the education field such as; teachers familiar with RTI, university professors, researchers, and PhDs to determine if the training was complete in content and format. Pilot results indicated that the training was complete but overwhelming. Expert results showed that the responses were positive and there was no mention of excluding components of the training. Experts did not suggest that the training was overwhelming. Some additions were suggested that provide opportunity for future research.
