Question
When looking at the Learning Continuum or other information about standards, what does develop, introduce and reinforce mean?

Answer
Learning statements are grouped in to three 10-point RIT bands in the Learning Continuum: Develop, Introduce, and Reinforce.
  • Reinforce: The learning statements in the 10-point RIT band just below where a student scored. Students are likely to already know these skills and concepts and you can reinforce their learning.
  • Develop: The learning statements in the 10-point RIT band where a student scored. These are skills and concepts the student is ready to learn.
  • Introduce: The learning statements in the 10-point RIT band just above where a student scored. These are potential skills and concepts you can introduce when the student is ready for more challenge.

For example, if a student's RIT score in an instructional area is 205, their Develop band would be 201-210, their Reinforce band would be 191-200, and their Introduce band would be 211-202.
