School-Wide Positive Behavioral Support School-wide Evaluation Tool January 2007
School-wide Evaluation Tool (SET) Developed by George Sugai Terri Lewis-Palmer Anne Todd Rob Horner University of Oregon (2001, revised 2005)
SET Purposes Research validated instrument Results are primarily used for research and reporting as a way to validate SWPBS practices Designed to determine The extent to which schools are using SW-PBS If training and technical assistance efforts result in change when using SW-PBS If use of SW-PBS procedures is related to valued change in the safety, social culture, and violent behaviors in schools
SET can be used to Assess features of SWPBS that are in place Evaluate on-going efforts Design and evaluate procedures Determine annual goals and build action plans Compare year to year efforts in SWPBS
SET Elementary School K pre/post features Expect. defined Expect taught Acknowledgment Corrections Evaluation Leadership District Support mean 0 20 40 60 80 100 % of features implemented fall 98 fall 99
SWPBS Evaluation SET is only one means of evaluating a school’s level of implementation on SWPBS It should be used in conjunction with Office discipline referral patterns Staff survey results Safety surveys Team Checklist information Etc.
Louisiana Plans for SET To identify schools that have exemplary SWPBS practices in place Validation of self-report surveys for schools reporting 80% or higher on the Self- Assessment Survey Conducted by personnel who have met reliability criteria It is not a test or a way to pass judgment on schools
Features of SET The SET has 28 items focused on 7 areas: Expectations defined Behavioral expectations taught Acknowledgement procedures Correction procedures Monitoring and evaluation Management District level support
Data Sources for the SET Interviews Observations Product Reviews
Conducting the SET (1 of 3) Interviews (avoid any disruption to instruction) Administrator - 30 minutes Staff – at least 10 randomly selected Students - at least 15 randomly selected Observation - tour school building School rules posted in 10 specified locations
Conducting the SET (2 of 3) Product Review Discipline Handbook Office discipline referral forms, records and summary reports Instructional materials for teaching and correcting behavioral expectations School Improvement Plan Annual action plan for SWPBS activities Other related written products
Conducting the SET (3 of 3) Approximately 2 hours to complete 30 minute interview with administrator Interviewing staff and students who are not actively engaged in instruction Tour of the school building Review school-wide discipline records, related materials, plans, etc.
Preparing School for SET Send confirmation letter to principal one week before scheduled meeting date Include the SET Overview Include a list of products to review Begin every SET with the Administrator interview Requires 30 minutes of uninterrupted time!
SET Administrator Interview Items AreasItems Discipline System1-5 School Expectations6-11 Leadership Team12-21 The responses provided to these questions will be the basis for the rest of the interviews Attempt to begin interview 45 minutes before lunch/recess
Student Interviews Interview 15 random students During administrator interview find out the lunch and recess times Avoid interrupting instruction time On the scoring sheet, note the student grade level and gender Get a representative sample of the student population (different grade levels, genders, ethnicity, etc.) Remember small, medium, large
Student Interview Questions What are the school expectations? Count how many the students can name that match administrator’s responses (i.e., 5/5, 2/3,…) Have you received a reinforcer in the last two months? Try to equate to a holiday or special event (e.g., since Mardi Gras, since Christmas, etc.)
Staff Interview Procedures Request the administrator introduce you to the SWPBS team members Interview staff members individually Avoid group responses
Staff Interview Questions (1 of 3) What are the school expectations? Count how many the students can name that match administrator’s responses (i.e., 5/5, 2/3,…) Have you taught the school expectations/rules to students this year? yes/no Have you given out any reinforcers in the last 2 months? yes/no
Staff Interview Questions (2 of 3) What type of student behaviors do/would you refer to the office? Write exactly what behaviors they name Yes (or +) if response matches administrator’s No (or –) if response does not match admin. What is the procedure for dealing with a stranger? Write exactly what they describe Yes (or +) if response matches administrator’s No (or –) if response does not match admin.
Staff Interview Questions (3 of 3) Is there a team in your school to address school-wide behavior support systems? Yes or no Are you on that team? Yes or no If no, then they are done If yes, move to 3 team member questions
Team Member Interview Questions Does your team use discipline data to make decisions? Has your team taught the School-wide program to staff this year? Who is your team leader? Name the person Scoring items Yes (or +) if response matches admin No (or -) if response does not match admin
Product Reviews It helps if the administrator stays around in case you have questions on the products. Often the notebooks lack organization Ensure you have all the products you need before the administrator leaves the room
Observation During the interviews, tour the school and observe school rules and crisis plan posted in 10 locations Do not enter classrooms while teaching is in progress If empty rooms are locked, request the administrator to allow you to quickly observe
Scoring the SET Write administrator answers directly on the Interview Sheet Match administrator responses with staff and student responses Staff and student responses and observations are written directly on the Interview and Observation Form Product Review is scored directly on the SET Scoring Guide
What does the SET score mean? Overall SET score General index of SWPBS implementation Criteria for SWPBS implementation 80% total score AND 80% “Expectations Taught”
