Progress Monitoring and Decision Making for Tier 2 and Beyond

Show Summary Details


The purpose of FBAs is to develop interventions that improve student behavior. Improvements in student behavior are measured formatively over time in a process called progress monitoring. Since both Tier 2 and Tier 3 FBAs processes involved working with individual students, the process for monitoring their behavior is the same for Tier 2 and Tier 3. This chapter reviews two data collection methods for progress monitoring: systematic direct observation and direct behavior ratings. Forms are provided for each data collection method. The chapter also describes the process of making decisions with progress monitoring data using line graphs and behavioral goals.

Keywords: direct observation; progress monitoring; direct behavior ratings; line graphs; goal setting

Chapter.  5344 words.  Illustrated.
