RTI and formative assessment have the potential to positively impact student achievement. When formative assessment is coupled with RTI, teachers can catch students before they fall too far behind the standards and their peers.

Linking the results of formative assessment to instructional change can enhance learning and influence student success.

It provides educators with ample information and ideas that will help them base their instructional decisions on the results of effective formative assessment practices.
