A Demonstration of Class-wide Data-based Decision Making
A teacher initially requested consultation services to address the behavior of three of her general education first grade students. This paper describes the decision rnaking process that led to the development of a class-wide intervention modeled after Barrish, Saunders, and Wolf’s (1969) Good Behavior Game. The paper focuses on how direct observation data, teacher and student input and preferences, and
previous research led to the development, implementation, and evaluation of an intervention that appeared to reduce disruptive behaviors across the entire class.
