RTI fidelity measures should ensure that an intervention is implemented as intended.
Reading Recovery: An Ideal Fit Within an RTI Framework

Reading Recovery fidelity is assured through Standards and Guidelines, intensive year-long training, and annual evaluation of outcomes.

Administrators want to know that an intervention is consistently administered as intended.
Reading Recovery ensures fidelity of implementation, through

  • a published set of Standards and Guidelines,
  • an annual registry that verifies compliance with standards,
  • intensive year-long training and ongoing professional development for all Reading Recovery professionals,
  • annual evaluation of outcomes for every child by the International Data Evaluation Center, and
  • analysis of outcome and process data by university trainers.
