  STEEP--STEEP RTI
STEEP provides a systematic process for assisting the school to improve achievement for all children.
Within the STEEP process, to be referred, a child must pass through a series of “gates” that serve to rule out children who may be low-performing or low-achieving but who do not have a disability.
Teacher referral was accurate only 19% of the time in 406 cases, whereas the STEEP process was accurate 53% of the time in saying a child was a problem when the child truly did have a problem.

 About - The Steep Canyon Rangers
All the money and hype in the world can’t buy entree into what is as much a community as a style of music, and the rules of the game dictate that artists serve demanding apprenticeships with veteran performers before making their way into the limelight.
For though their music is filled with the spirit and energy of past bluegrass greats, the Rangers have broken those rules by carving out their own, 21st century path to acclaim.
Now, with the release of their self-titled Rebel Records disc, "Steep Canyon Rangers", the group is poised to become a mainstay of the bluegrass scene while retaining its appeal to audiences reaching well beyond the genre’s mainstream.

The kernels are called steep origin kernels and are related to a class of sharp origin kernels explored by the authors (2003) in other work.
With steep origin kernel estimation, bandwidth selection is replaced by exponent selection and data-based selection is possible.
Optimal rates for steep origin kernels that are based on exponentiating quadratic kernels are shown to be faster than those based on exponentiating the Bartlett kernel, which produces the sharp origin kernel.
