Courses in Tier 2 offer opportunities to learn more about targeted interventions and the use of data at Tier 2.  Targeted interventions include evidence-based interventions delivered to a group of students or an individual through a standard protocol. Interventions can be academic, behavioral, or social-emotional in nature. Tier 2 learning opportunities also include courses on using data at Tier 2 to identify students for interventions, evaluate implementation efforts, and measure student response to the intervention.

Tier 2 Practices

This is the second course in the Tier 2 strand.  Expanding on the information introduced in the Tier 2 Overview course, here we explore "Practices" - the support provided to students who are at some risk of not achieving successful outcomes.  Emphasis is placed on understanding the characteristics of Tier 2 support with a specific focus on how to find and select the right evidence-based interventions for successful Tier 2 practices.  Participants completing this course will be well poised to move on to the next two courses in the Tier 2 strand, Data Use and Systems.

Please note that you must complete the Tier 2 Overview course first. Upon successful completion of that course, you will get an enrollment key to enroll in the other courses in the strand, including this course.
