The article focuses on the implementation of a response-to-intervention (RTI) delivery model in Alice Birney Middle School, North Charleston, South Carolina. Based on the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) Reading data, 40% to 48% of non-special education students fell. It mentions that RTI was implemented in Alice Birney by giving a curriculum-based measurement (CBM) maze probe and a CBM oral reading affluency (ORF) probe to students who scored below the 25th percentile of MAP Reading.
