See how quick and easy it is to enter a Tier 1 Incident.
Incident search allows you to view details associated with a specific incident. You can search broadly or specifically.
Use a custom field and custom reports to find out what’s happening with your bus referrals.
Incident notifications are intended to improve communication among staff members by letting the person who reported the referral know that a school administrator has addressed the situation, but they can be disabled for an individual or for the entire school if necessary.
This checklist outlines activities that will help you transition to electronic office referrals (ODRs) effectively.
The Behavior Report Point Card
Download a blank report card for students who receive Tier 2. You can enter your school’s expectations and make changes to the form as needed.
This resource provides several examples of how different point cards could be adapted to fit the database’s structure for Tier 2.
This handout illustrates the benefits of recording quick daily assessments of students who receive Tier 2 support for behavior.
The main steps for using the database for Tier 2 are identified here.
Students must be enrolled in Tier 2 for each school year in which s/he will be progress monitored. The enrollment date indicates the start date for the studentsí progress monitoring.
Use this checklist to identify and gather the pertinent information that you will need to have available during our Tier 3 training session.
This handout provides an overview of the main steps required for setting up a student’s information in the Tier 3 portion of the RtIB database.
This resource lists the types of problem behaviors, appropriate behaviors, and intervention strategies available in the Tier 3 portion of the RtIB database.
This document provides considerations to help guide the selection of a progress monitoring tool for behavior.
This progress monitoring tool utilizes a 5-point teacher-developed rating scale that is specific to each student and behavior. Please note that additional training is needed to learn how to establish the rating scale for this instrument.
These measures can be used to monitor behavior for an entire day, or for a specific part of the day.
This feature allows users to export a studentís Tier 3 Progress Monitoring data into an Excel spreadsheet, where unique charts and graphs may be created for different situations.
The Core Report (School-level)
The Core Report helps schools evaluate whether the core curriculum for behavior is effective for the majority of their students.
Average Students Per Month (School-level)
Find out if your monthly rate of students contacting your discipline system is increasing or decreasing.
Grade Level Comparison Report (Individual Student-level)
Compare the average number of referrals received by your target student to the average number for all other students in the same grade.
The Core Effectiveness Report (DISTRICT-level)
This report provides an overall estimation of the effectiveness of core curricula for behavior across the district. Only District Administrators can generate this report.
The School Core Effectiveness Report (DISTRICT-level)
The School Core Effectiveness report allows district personnel to determine if the majority of their schools have outcomes that indicate a relatively effective Tier 1 system. Only District Administrators can generate this report.
Enter numbers of students for each of the required fields, and this Excel file will calculate the risk ratio for you automatically. This tool can be used with Custom Reports to identify disproportionality within the ESE population (Indicator 4).
This handout explains how the risk ratio is calculated (examples provided).
The Guiding Questions were developed by Florida’s MTSS Project as a way of improving the fidelity of teams’ problem solving process. The questions provide a basic starting point for problem identification and analysis, and add structure to plan development and evaluation.
Comprehensive problem analysis is critical to effective problem solving. See examples of different variables related to student behavior that should be considered during problem analysis for Tier 1.
