Title of Collection: Impact Evaluation of Training in Multi-Tiered Systems of Support for Reading in Early Elementary School. OMB Control Number: 1850–NEW. Type of Review: A new information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Individuals or Households. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 22,560. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 4,660. Abstract: This study will provide much needed evidence on strategies to support U.S. students’ development of foundational reading skills, essential to later learning. A third of U.S. students fail to develop foundational reading skills by 4th grade that are necessary to succeed academically. In addition, the achievement gap is growing as demonstrated by The Nation’s Report Card. To address, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) promotes the use of evidence-based literacy interventions.

This study will provide much needed evidence by evaluating two professional development strategies for bolstering core reading instruction and supplemental supports, guided by data, within a MTSS–R framework. MTSS–R is a widely used framework for providing high-quality reading PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 instruction for all students, identifying students needing supplemental or more intensive supports, and providing these additional supports for those who need it.
