Date/Time The date and time the incident occurred. The when of the referral. Defaults to the current date and time. Very important to select the date and time the behavior occurred, not the date and time the incident was entered.
Location The place where the referring behavior occurred. The where of the referral.
Subject The academic subject being taught when the incident occurred. Can choose unspecified if the incident occurred during non- instructional time.
Arrangement The instructional arrangement the student was in at the time of the offense. Important when analyzing trends and patterns in referral data. Examples: Group Seatwork Test/Quiz Transition
Offense The student behavior resulting in the referral. The what of the referral. If more than one behavior occurred as part of the same incident, select the most severe and list others in the description box.
Description A complete description of the discipline incident. The what, why, and how of the referral. Include parent contact attempts, steps taken prior to writing the referral, and a complete description of the incident.
Action The action you are taking in response to the incident. Select Send to Administrator to write a referral, or select a classroom action.
Caution! What you type in the description will be sent home to parents, appear on reports, and is subject to subpoena.
Do: Provide a complete, factual description of the incident. Document any conditions leading up to the incident. Document steps taken to correct the behavior prior to referral. Document parent contact regarding the incident. Don’t: Provide subjective opinions about the incident or student. Include personally identifiable information about other students. Vent, ruminate, or engage in any other form of catharsis. Make it about you.
Referral History The History acts as a binder for your referrals. Referrals are listed in reverse chronological order. Click on a referral to view details, including the schedule for the consequence assigned by your administration.
Referral Calendar The Calendar displays referrals and their associated actions. Depending on your account permissions, you may see referrals classroom actions or administrative actions from other users as well.
Rosters Rosters allow you to receive new referral notifications, access incident data and reports for rostered students, and track group progress with roster-level reports. Roster access requires administrative approval.
Dashboard Report The Dashboard is a report of the referrals you have previously written. It will be displayed every time you login. It is designed to highlight trends and patterns in the behavior of your students. The report displays several charts to help you troubleshoot student behavior. Data from the year-ago period are presented in grey to permit year-over-year comparisons.
Most Frequently Referred The ten students with the highest number of discipline referrals and the date the most recent discipline referral was written.
Classroom Summary The Percentile measure is the percent of active users (including administrators) at your school site with fewer referrals. Instructional Cost is the amount of instructional time lost as a result of student exposure to disciplinary action (e.g. 3 days of suspension = 3 lost days of instructional time).
Referral Trending The number of referrals per school day for each month of the year. This metric is used in lieu of raw referral counts to account for an uneven distribution of schools days across months.
Weekday & Time Analyses The Weekday Analysis and Time Analysis show the days and times when referral incidents are most likely.
Referral Distributions The distribution histograms display the percent of referrals accounted for by each listed offense, academic subject, location, administrative action, or instructional arrangement. The actual number of referrals is listed in parenthesis next to the percentage.
Referral Details Your report includes the narrative information for each referral included in the report. Click a referral to view details of the incident, including the days and times of the assigned consequence.
