Cognitive assessment and RTI: Kearns and Fuchs @ LDA

Someone sent me a copy of the Kearns and Fuchs handouts from their Feb. 2008 "Cognitive Assessment in an RTI Framework" presentation at the Learning Disabilities Association of American (LDA) conference. It is interesting to see the growing number of scholars who see a place for cognitive assessment in the emerging RTI (response to intervention) paradigm. It is also nice to see these scholars integrating contemporary intelligence theories (e.g., CHC theory) in their literature reviews.

See related prior posts re: my recent CHC/non-CHC (from CHC lens)-->achievement literature integration project...which, although not focused on intervention studies, does provide evidence for the relations between specific broad and narrow CHC abilities and reading and math achievement.
