Description of

Below is a sample report that is produced after three weeks of data entry.

This chart resembles the printout that teachers use to track the student’s behavior in class. Notice how behaviors cluster.

Attendance is addressed HERE.

This graph shows  how much of each day has NO BEHAVIORS.

The HIGHER the bars the better!

This graph shows  days of the week—the percent of each day that has NO BEHAVIORS.

 The higher the bar the better!

This chart compares morning and afternoon performance in percents. Use these numbers for comparison—week to week—and for progress monitoring.

The solid green area of this graph shows the amount of time this student RESPONDED TO REDIRECTION. The space between the green area and the  graphed line shows the amount of time this student did NOT RESPOND TO REDIRECTION.

This graph shows the time of day that behaviors occurred during this three week period.

The Scatterplot Analysis tracks one behavior.  The day is broken into 15 minute increments. If the behavior is of moderate or severe intensity, the teacher marks the time period. Otherwise, nothing is marked. This program allows you to print a data collection sheet for classroom teacher use. At the end of the week, data may be entered into the computer. After three weeks, a report similar to the one below will be generated.

Additionally, the paper data collection sheets may be stapled together to form a multiple week paper chart. Instructions are included in the program.

Use this program:

      1.  to analyze behavior based on time of day

      2.  as baseline and post intervention data collection

      3.  to evaluate performance as part of a Functional Behavior Assessment

                                       (NOTE: One copy of this program is needed for each targeted student.)

Below is a sample report that gives a comparison of pre– and post-intervention performance.

This graph compares baseline (blue bars) with post intervention (brown bars). In this sample, post-Intervention data was not collected until the Interventions had been in place a full two weeks.  (This teacher could have chosen to collect two weeks of baseline and post Intervention instead of three. She could have entered data during weeks 4-6. Lots of options...)

The Comparison Chart breaks down the data  into a number of categories showing performance before and after implementing Interventions .

These graphs shows the time of day that behaviors occurred during each three week period.

Next, Interventions applied are described.
