Why 80%?

A solid MTSS / RTI Tier 1 should be sufficient to help 80% of students meet or exceed grade level expectations as measured by a standardized summative assessment. If Tier 1 instruction is not successful in meeting the needs of 80% of the school’s population, the school team should consider possible solutions to create a better match between students’ needs and the core curriculum and instruction (e.g., improving explicit instruction, differentiation strategies, use of flexible grouping, and maximizing active student engagement).

    • “Approximately 80% of students receiving a well instructed, research based curriculum should experience success as a result of initial core instruction in the classroom.  If a strong core instructional program can account for up to 80% of students experiencing success, Schools should place a majority of their efforts on strengthening their core instructional programs.
