1 Measuring Performance within School Climate Transformation Grants Rob HornerOSEP TA-Center on PBIS
2 GoalDefine resources for measuring performance within SCTG grants that may improve efficiency, consistency and effectiveness of evaluation efforts.Provide a brief summary of schools using PBIS in the U.S.
3 Why a Framework for Multi-tiered Behavior Support? The fundamental purpose of a Multi-tiered Behavior Framework is to make schools more effective and equitable learning environments.PredictablePositiveConsistentSafe

5 Four ways the OSEP TA-Center may be helpful Aligning multiple initiatives begins by defining common fidelity and outcome measuresCoordination and CommunicationWebinars and information disseminationIntervention ContentTier ITier IITier IIIMeasuring Fidelity of Multi-tiered Behavior SupportMeasuring Student Outcomes
6 Resources Grantees are held accountable for what they submitted. But some consistency across projects may help all evaluation effortsResources that may be helpful:Evaluation Blueprint (www.pbis.org)Evaluation Annual Reports (www.pbis.org)State and District Capacity AssessmentsMulti-tiered Fidelity Assessment (Tier I, Tier II, Tier III)Multi-tiered student discipline data systemsSWIS, CICO-SWIS, ISIS-SWIS
8 Performance Indicators: SEA The number of training and technical assistance events provided by the SEA School Climate Transformation Grant Program to assist LEAs in implementing a multi-tiered behavioral framework.The number and percentage of LEAs provided training or technical assistance by the SEA School Climate Transformation Grant Program that report an improvement in knowledge and understanding of the implementation of a multi-tiered behavioral framework.The number and percentage of schools in LEAs provided training or technical assistance by the SEA School Climate Transformation Grant Program that implement a multi-tiered behavioral framework.
9 Performance Indicators: LEA Number and percentage of schools that report an annual decrease in office disciplinary referrals.Number and percentage of schools that report an annual improvement in the attendance rate.Number and percentage of schools that report an annual decrease in suspensions and expulsions, including those related to possession or use of drugs or alcohol.Number and percentage of schools annually that are implementing the multi-tiered behavioral framework with fidelity.
10 Performance Measure Considerations Use a Formal Evaluation ModelMeasure Fidelity at All Three TiersConsider Measuring Improved State/ District CapacityMeasure student outcomes within a formal “decision system”
11 Multi-Tiered Behavior Support Evaluation Model: Evaluation Blueprint/Multi-Tiered Behavior Support
12 Context Who is participating How selected Initial Assessment Process for support plan development
13 Input Type and amount of technical assistance Training Coaching Systems for Performance FeedbackDevelopment of evaluation capacityDevelopment of Leadership Team Capacity
14 FidelityAre schools using Tier I practices and systems of behavior support?Are schools using Tier II practices and systems of behavior support?Are schools using Tier III practices and systems of behavior support?
15 Impact State: Capacity of State Has the state established the capacity to (a) improve district capacity, (b) implement evidence-based, multi-tiered behavior support in schools, (c) monitor the fidelity of school-level implementation and (d) benefits for children and families?District/Region: Capacity of LEA or RegionHas the district/region established the capacity to (a) implement evidence-based, multi-tiered behavior support in schools, and (b) monitor the fidelity of implementation in schools and (c) benefits for children and families?Schools: Fidelity of Imp and Impact on StudentsIs multi-tiered behavior support being implemented with fidelity in target schools?Is there an effect of multi-tiered behavior support on student behavior as measured by office discipline referral (ODR) patterns?Is there an effect of multi-tiered behavior support on student attendance?Is there an effect of multi-tiered behavior support on student suspension and expulsion?Is there an effect of multi-tiered behavior support on student bullying and violence?Is there an effect of multi-tiered behavior support on juvenile arrests?Is there an effect of multi-tiered behavior support on student academic performance?
16 Are Schools Implementing Multi-tiered Systems of Behavior Support?
17 Possible Measures of Multi-Tiered Behavior Support Fidelity Measures (www.pbis.org)Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI) Tier IIIIndividual Student System Evaluation Tool (ISSET)Benchmark of Advanced Tiers (BAT)Measure of Advanced Tiers Tool ( MATT)Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI) Tier IITiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI) Tier ISchool-wide Evaluation Tool (SET)Team Implementation Checklist (TIC)Benchmarks of Quality (BoQ)Regardless of the Intervention approach used, TA-Center Fidelity measures are available and appropriate
18 TFI- Technical Adequacy (McIntosh, Massar et al. 2014) Available from OSEP TA-CenterNo CostAssessors Training PowerPoint availableAssessors Training Video in developmentTFI- Technical Adequacy(McIntosh, Massar et al. 2014)Content Validity (.95; .93; .91)Usability (12 of 14 > 80%) (15 min per Tier)Inter-rater Agreement (.95; .96; .89)Test-retest reliability (.98; .99; .99)Factor Analysis (in process)
24 State/Region Capacity Does a state have the capacity to implement multi-tiered systems of behavior support?Is Technical Assistance improving the capacity of a state/region to implement multi-tiered systems of behavior support?
25 Possible Measures of SEA/LEA Capacity www.sisep.org State Capacity Assessment (SCA)Assessment of extent to which state department has capacity to implement evidence-based practices at scales of social significance?No Cost, from OSEP’s SISEP TA-CenterScores: Total, Sub-scale, ItemUsed for initial assessment, action planning, progress monitoringDistrict Capacity Assessment (DCA)Assessment of extent to which a school district (or region) has capacity to implement evidence-based practices as scales of social significance?No Cost, from OSEP’s SISEP TA-CenterImplementers Training Video
