In partnership with the University of North Texas, Rhithm has demonstrated Promising Evidence through a well-designed correlational study. Rhithm is actively working to restart a randomized control experimental study which was derailed by COVID-19 during the Spring 2020 semester. Scroll down to learn more about our Evidence Base and for more information on how ESSA defines evidence base Tiers.
Results of a 6-week correlation study showed a statistically significant increase in student’s regulation as measured by the Rhithm Assessment!
Data from over 1 million unique entries over 18 months shows a distinct trend of improved classroom regulation over time at every single age level.
Rhithm’s dynamic, adaptive social-emotional activities and lessons will become the most consistent Tier 1 tool and prevention mechanisms in your MTSS/RTI classroom toolbox. Additionally, Rhithm’s group functionalities make it a great tool to use in Tier 2 contexts, while the robust Rhithm data will become an indispensable part of informing Tier 2 and Tier 3 interventions across your network or District.

The passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) in 2015 changed how the education system supports low-performing schools. Interventions applied under Title I, Section 1003 (School Improvement) are required to have strong, moderate, or promising evidence (Tiers 1-3) to support them. All other programs under Title I-IV can rely on Tiers 1-4. ESSA describes these tiers as:
