“A clear, practitioner-friendly guide to incorporating SCD into tiered systems of intervention in schools. This book provides tools to help all educators evaluate students’ response to intervention in a scientifically rigorous manner. Procedures for integrating SCD across all tiers of an MTSS framework are provided. Importantly, readers will find guidance to align special education services with the latest legal mandates, which require the use of a defensible, data-driven process for evaluating response to intervention. I look forward to using this text in my methods courses for students who are seeking teacher certification. Students will leave with tools they can immediately implement in their classrooms to improve outcomes for their students. Another home run from this top-notch team of authors!”

“An essential resource for practicing education professionals, as well as students preparing to work in schools. Recognizing the crucial role of data-based decision making within schoolwide problem-solving models, this book offers valuable information and insights regarding the use of SCDs. The authors are leading scholars who provide a synthesis of contemporary science on this effective methodology. The second edition includes significant updates in science, practice, and policy.”

—Shane R. Jimerson, PhD, NCSP, Gevirtz Graduate School of Education, University of California, Santa Barbara

“The book addresses critical components of evaluation and data-based decision making within a multi-tiered framework. It gives preservice educators a better understanding of foundational evaluation strategies that support meaningful outcomes for students receiving tiered supports. It also provides more in-depth information for school specialists with a higher skill set. Given the current educational emphasis on more effective and efficient intervention, this book provides needed guidance.”

—Steve Goodman, PhD, Director, Michigan's MTSS Technical Assistance Center

“Although school-based professionals and policymakers give considerable attention to implementing evidence-based practices, the importance of scientifically evaluating the effectiveness of particular interventions has largely been ignored. This definitive book provides school-based professionals with comprehensive guidelines for doing just that. Step-by-step procedures and case examples illustrate how to apply, analyze, and interpret SCDs to determine intervention effectiveness. A major contribution to the field, this updated second edition is essential reading for practitioners working within an MTSS framework, as well as for university training programs in school psychology, education, and special education.”
