Project MP3: Monitoring Progress in Pennsylvania Pupils

The Project MP3 team examined the implementation of a school-wide model of progress monitoring in reading for students in kindergarten through fourth grade at five Pennsylvania elementary schools. The information obtained through progress monitoring was used to determine students’ needs for additional reading intervention and to facilitate the development of a three-tiered response to intervention framework in the schools.

Project MP3 was a partnership among Lehigh University, the University of Pittsburgh, and the Pennsylvania Training and Technical Assistance Network (PaTTAN).
