Abstract
  • Schools are continually faced with the challenge of providing students with a comprehensive system of support. Previous research based on the practices and systems of Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) suggests that having effective primary prevention measures in place can help to reduce problem behavior before it occurs (Ingram, Lewis-Palmer, & Sugai, 2005; Sugai, Lewis-Palmer, & Hagan-Burke, 1999). Without these preventative measures, low-level, high frequency behaviors can escalate causing strain on the teacher-student relationship and impacting the academic success of students. The current study seeks to assess the usability and effectiveness of the “Guess & Check,” a teacher-guided prevention assessment tool originally created by O’Keefe, Lewis-Palmer, and Sugai (2001). Teacher-generated hypotheses using the “Guess & Check” were compared to student researchers’ hypotheses, developed from functional behavior assessment interviews (FBAIs) and descriptive direct observations. Additionally, a withdrawal design was incorporated to compare pre-intervention student data (baseline) to post-intervention data (intervention) in order to evaluate the usefulness of the teacher-guided interventions using the “Guess & Check.”
