·      Use a variety of assessment measures (including diagnostic, benchmark, classroom data) to select student participation
·      Begin with students scoring below the 10 percentile of local norms to determine participation in small group and/or intensive instruction (tier 2            or tier 3)
·      Utilize a variety of progress monitoring tools as a piece of information to determine movement between tiers
·      Contribute progress monitoring data to determine appropriate movement between tiers
·      Collaborate with problem solving team to determine interventions for individual student needs
