Achievement growth in math is often framed in the context of monitoring student progress within a Response to Intervention (RTI) approach to teaching and learning. In this research brief we report on a study that examined initial status and within-year growth for fourth grade students who received short progress-monitoring assessments in math during the 2011-2012 school year. Our results suggested that while growth in math was statistically observable and linear, given the amount of growth relative to the 16-point scale of the progress-monitoring probes used, it might have limited utility to teachers operating within an RTI framework. Additional research on within-year growth in math is suggested, especially as it relates to the influence of assessment design and instructional practices on such growth.
