One tool that I would use in the classroom is a point sheet. This point sheet would have the behaviors that are expected to be displayed in class. Each time the behavior is displayed the student gets a point. The maximum points students can get in each catorgie is five. The total points they can get for a day is 100.

90%-100% - $50=panther bucks

80%-89% -$40=panther bucks

70%-79% -$30=panther bucks

60$-69%-$20=panther bucks

50% and below- $5=panther bucks

Students will be able to shop at the school store at the end of the day.

This site provides a power point that discuss the importance of collecting data when starting PBS. The great part of this form is that it shows you how to create charts and graphs using excel. What is great about the information presented is that it shows examples with information that will guide you through the process of collecting base line data and then collecting information after intervention has completed. It guides the user through the process of making graphs and identifying the slopes of line graphs.


I found this School-Wide PBS: Expanding Universal interventions by Dr. Borgmeier, PHD from Portland State University with full of information to prepare a school wide plan. Teachers can use this tool as a guide when preparing for or planning evidence-based interventions. This plan provides the components of building and maintaining an effective system. It also provides information to increase participation with all staff, substitutes, and volunteers. In addition, ongoing training and classroom support systems that tools we can use to better serve our students when we prepare or plan evidenced-based interventions. I attempted to open the video links and was not successful.

This document contains tools useful in helping to create a supportive and effective classroom environment. Several specific strategies for classroom management and teaching are listed which provide a clear, visual reminder for the teacher and other adults in the classroom. Also included is a checklist for teachers to assess instruction and classroom management. A simple template for developing a classroom plan for behavior management is provided. Finally, an environmental inventory is included to help teachers assess the classroom environment using a rating scale.

This document is amazing. The author starts with describing the foundations of a classroom. She describes what a classroom should look like and suggestions as to how to make adjustments to what you are given. She then provides guidelines as to how to create and keep positive relationships between you and your students, as well as helping students have relationships among themselves. The next section provides information about different disabilities and ways to identify if the behavior is due to the disability. She provides definitions, and a list of possible behaviors due to a variety of different disabilities. The author provides worksheets and examples to determine ways to find a baseline for the behavior. There are examples and forms provided to help understand the function of the behaviors, and to determine what strategies to use for different disabilities and types of learners. There is a huge selection of data collection sheets in this document as well. Lastly, there is a list of inexpensive rewards for young children, elementary students, high school students and adults. This site has an astounding amount of information for any educator to assist with behaviors in the classroom.

This is a scatter plot data sheet. This is used for “recording times of the day (and/or activities) in which the behavior does occur and does not occur to identify patterns and that occur over days or weeks” (Kerr & Nelson, 2010). Scatter plots can be used when monitoring a child’s behavior and show when a child’s behavior becomes negative and when a child’s behavior is positive. Scatter plots can also be used to help a child reach a target behavior. Scatter plots are easy to use for all parties who are helping a child reach a target behavior as well as for parents. Scatter plots are also easy to read and compare throughout the time the behavior is being monitored.
