Tier II Students (Strategic) – Tier II students are those who are responding to basic instructional practices, but their academic scores are slightly below what is expected of their age appropriate peers.  Their deficits are evidenced by DIBELS and/or AIMSweb benchmark scores, grades, and standardized tests scores.

Tier III Students (At-Risk) – Tier III students are those who are not responding appropriately to basic instructional practices and who are performing significantly below what is expected when compared to their age appropriate peers.    Their deficits are evidenced by DIBELS and/or AIMSweb benchmark scores, grades, and standardized tests scores.
