Montana’s MTSS Essential Components Integrity Worksheet (DOC). The MTSS Essential Components Integrity Rubric and the MTSS Essential Components Integrity Worksheet are for use by individuals responsible for monitoring the school-level fidelity of Multiple Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) implementation.  They may also be used by schools for self-appraisal; however, they were not designed for compliance monitoring and should not be used for this purpose. 
The rubric and worksheet are designed to be used with the Montana MTSS Technical Assistance Milestones to conduct a needs assessment and develop a plan for professional development and technical assistance.

Ohio’s Coaching Skills Instrument (DOC). The Ohio SPDG project focuses on systemic capacity-building supported through increased use of data-based instructional decision-making and deployment of evidence-based practice. Across the system, educators are taught to help one another by using process coaching and instructional coaching. One way to gauge the effectiveness of the PD that the project provides is to measure increases in the coaching skills of participants. This instrument, that the evaluators on the Ohio project are developing, measures instructional coaching skills; the Ohio team is working to make the instrument effective as one of its tools for the pre- and post-assessment of teachers in participating districts.
