BRITO, Gabriel Rodriguez; SEABRA, Alessandra Gotuzo  and  MACEDO, Elizeu Coutinho de. Implementation of Response to Intervention Model in a class of 5th grade of a public elementary school: experience report. Rev. psicopedag. [online]. 2018, vol.35, n.106, pp. 82-93. ISSN 0103-8486.

The present study aims to narrate an experience of application of the Response to Intervention model in a 5th grade class of a Public Elementary School. Twenty-two children, aged 10 and 11, took part in this experience. We used an adaptation of tier 1 of the RTI model that aims for an instructional, preventive intervention, offered by the teacher to all students, through scientific based strategies. The study consisted in three moments of administration of standardized tests for reading, writing, numeracy, attention and motivation: at the beginning of the school year and at the end of the first and last semesters. Besides these tests, we made use of other types of continuous and qualitative assessment, meeting the criteria for monitoring prescribed in the RTI model. The analysis of progress in reading, writing, attention and numeracy showed statistically significant improvement. It is also possible to identify students with below-average performance relative to their peers. This report corroborates the effectiveness of the application of the RTI model also at the end of the Elementary School cycle.
