Office discipline referrals (ODRs) are a data source commonly used by school teams to identify students who need behavioral intervention. In this brief, the National Center on Intensive Intervention (NCII) and the Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) provide a brief synthesis of the research on using ODRs has a behavioral screener and offer considerations for using ODRs to make data-based decisions.
The facilitating ongoing data team meeting documents can assist teams in ensuring that ongoing meetings for students receiving intensive intervention run smoothly. These tools are intended to support teams as they review student progress monitoring data after the initial intervention plan has been put in place and determine whether the student is making progress at an acceptable rate or if adaptations to the intervention plan are necessary. This suite of tools includes a sample agenda, facilitator guide, participant guide, and note taking template.
The initial data team meeting documents can assist teams in facilitating an efficient and effective process for analyzing data and designing intensive intervention plans for students.
Before a student is referred for intensive intervention, it is important that the team get a holistic sense of the student, including relevant background information, current performance, current supports and previously attempted intervention(s), and other relevant data. These data meeting tools focused on preparing for the meeting ensure that team members are prepared to discuss students.
This webinar, led by Drs. Lynn Fuchs and Lee Kern addresses a challenge faced by many teachers: feeling inundated by data while struggling to find useful information to guide intervention decision-making
In this webinar, Dr. Amy Elledge provides an overview of the process of data-based decision making and the different types of decisions that can be made with screening and progress monitoring data in order to identify students in need of additional instruction and assessment, evaluate the effectiveness of the core curriculum, allocate resources, evaluate the effectiveness of instruction and interventions for specific populations, and identify students for special education evaluation.
