Evaluation Tools and Timeline

Evaluation for data-based decision-making is a hallmark of PBIS. This document provides coaches with a quick reference to the most widely used tools for self-assessment and action planning, and suggests a timeline for implementation.

The following evaluation tools assist schools, districts, and the Midwest PBIS Network in answering these essential questions:

1) If you train your district / school personnel, do they implement PBIS?

2) If your schools implement PBIS, do they implement with fidelity?

3) If schools implement PBIS, are they able to sustain implementation?

4) Does PBIS implementation result in benefits to students?, and

5) Does PBIS implementation result in benefits to students for our most vulnerable students, and with complex needs?

If we train our district and school personnel, do they implement with fidelity?

Multi-Tiered Action Plan (MAP)

 

Purpose: Based on outcome and fidelity data, the MAP documents and organizes implementation steps based and technical assistance needs based on fidelity and outcome data, at all tiers of implementation.

Monthly to a minimum of 4xs per year

Does PBIS implementation result in benefits to students, including our most vulnerable students?

School-wide Information System or similar data system (SWIS, CICO-SWIS, ISIS-SWIS)

Purpose:  Provides data on frequency of problem behaviors, locations of problems, types of problems, students involved in problem behaviors and staff making referrals to be used for designing and progress monitoring.

·       Data entered within 24 hours.

·       Team reviews data:

o   T1: At least once per month

o   T2: At least 2 time per month

o   T3: Weekly, or more frequently

Student Outcome data: Office Discipline Referrals, Attendance, Grade achievement/ proficiency, time out of class, etc.  to identify the number and percentage of student being successful at Tier 1.

Purpose: To allow teams to determine the impact of instruction and intervention. Teams should look at data by the entire school, and by sub-groups and populations to determine equity of impact. For example, by grade level, by IEP and non-IEP status, and by ethnicity/race.

·       Data entered within 24 hours.

·       Team reviews data:

o   T1: At least once per month

o   T2: At least 2 time per month

o   T3: Weekly, or more frequently

Student Intervention Enrollment data:

Number and percentage of students participating in Tier 2 and Tier 3 interventions.

Purpose: To allow teams to determine the proportion of students participating in T2 and T3 interventions. Teams should look at proportion in relation to the entire school population, as well as compare by sub-groups and populations to determine equity of impact. For example, by grade level, by IEP and non-IEP status, and by ethnicity/race.

Student Intervention Success data:

Number and percentage of students meeting goals in Tier 2 and Tier 3 interventions.

Purpose: To allow teams to determine the rates of success for students participating in T2 and T3 interventions. Teams should look at rates of success of the entire T2 and T3 interventions, as well as compare rates of success for sub-groups and populations to determine equity of impact. For example, by grade level, by IEP and non-IEP status, and by ethnicity/race.
