The latest 4.2 release now includes features for developing intervention plans, through the Academic Intervention Plan feature, "for any group of students who need instruction outside of the regular academic program, such as remediation activities for struggling students or enrichment academics for gifted students," according to Pearson. "With this new feature, Pearson Inform now fully supports the Response to Intervention (RTI) framework and helps school districts meet state and federal mandates and reporting requirements."
