Field Test Assessment is a web-based application designed to assist in high-fidelity, sustained implementation of school-wide positive behavioral interventions and supports (SW-PBIS). The goal of the website is to improve the efficiency and accuracy with which tools/instruments can be used to complete three functions:
- Initial Assessment of discipline practices to determine if and how SW-PBIS should be adopted.
- Implementation Assessment of the fidelity with which SW-PBIS procedures are being used, and the design of “action plans” to improve implementation fidelity.
- Sustained Assessment of the implementation of SW-PBIS at all three tiers to facilitate on-going use of core SW-PBIS features.
School teams engaged in the adoption of SW-PBIS use PBIS Assessment to guide implementation of SW-PBIS with high fidelity. A major feature of SW-PBIS is commitment to the on-going tool/instrument of intervention fidelity. Practices that are not implemented well are less likely to benefit students, faculty and families. PBIS Assessment provides tools and instruments that allow examination of the level of SW-PBIS adoption, and guidance for how to improve implementation to a level that will benefit students.
Coaches / Coordinators
Coaches and coordinators responsible for assisting school teams use PBIS Assessment to determine which schools are collecting and using data, how schools are progressing, and what support may be of greatest value for any one team.
Research / Evaluation Groups
Research/evaluation teams use PBIS Assessment as a way to help schools in their research and evaluation projects to enter data about SW-PBIS implementation fidelity. Research/evaluation teams are also able to monitor which schools have entered data at any specific point in time.
