Grounded in state-of-the-art research, this practical guide comprehensively shows how to harness the potential of direct behavior rating (DBR) as a tool for assessment, intervention, and communication in schools. DBR can be used rapidly and efficiently in PreK-12 classrooms to support positive behavior and promote self-management. The authors and contributors provide concrete examples of ways to implement DBR strategies within multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS). The evidence base supporting each strategy is reviewed. More than 30 reproducible checklists and forms include step-by-step implementation blueprints, daily report cards, and more. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.

Direct Behavior Ratings (DBRs) are behavioral assessment methods that combine the benefits of systematic direct observation and behavior rating scales. That is, DBRs involve the observation of operationally defined target behaviors during a prespecified observation period and the evaluation of those behaviors via brief ratings. In this way, DBR is considered a hybrid assessment method. This article describes the landscape of DBR tools and provides an overview of the procedures and research currently available to support the use of one specific version, DBR–Single Item Scales (DBR-SIS), for progress monitoring within multi-tiered systems of support.

Direct behavior rating (DBR) may be a viable assessment for documenting current areas of impaired functioning and progress monitoring students’ response to a behavioral intervention. Challenging behaviors are often addressed in general education settings using interventions such as the daily report card (DRC). To best implement and monitor such interventions, effective progress monitoring tools are needed. The present study reports on the results of a multiple-baseline design across three elementary school children who had a DRC implemented to address academic engagement and social behaviors. The DRC and systematic direct observation (SDO) were compared with teacher-completed DBR to investigate the correspondence between these two measures of progress monitoring. Relative to SDO, results indicated that DBR was generally an effective means of monitoring progress for most cases and most target behaviors. The results of the present study support using DBR to monitor progress following the use of a behavioral intervention such as the DRC.

Despite significant advancements in supporting students’ social, emotional, and behavioral health in recent years, progress remains hindered by limited formative assessment options. The focus of this special issue is on applications for Direct Behavior Rating (DBR), which is a hybrid assessment method incorporating procedures utilized in direct observations and teacher ratings. Three articles in the special issue utilize multiple baseline designs to demonstrate the utility and effectiveness of DBR single-item scales, and a fourth article describes a multiple-item DBR applied to social behaviors. Expert commentaries provide perspectives on the current literature related to the assessment of social, emotional, and behavioral constructs in school settings and also chart a future course for continued study.

This study examined the treatment sensitivity of Direct Behavior Rating–Single Item Scales (DBR-SIS) in response to an evidence-based intervention delivered in a single-case, multiple-baseline design. DBR-SIS was used as a formative assessment in conjunction with a frequently used intervention in schools, a Daily Behavior Report Card (DRC). The intervention and concurrent assessment were conducted by five teachers in a rural Midwestern elementary school with five male students displaying mild to moderate behavioral challenges in the classroom. Study findings indicated DBR-SIS displays appropriate treatment sensitivity following intervention implementation. Agreement in the documentation of response and nonresponse to intervention implementation between DBR-SIS and systematic direct observation (SDO) data was evident across visual and empirical analyses. In addition, through a multiple-baseline design, this study documented negligible to no change in student behavior following implementation of a DRC in an applied classroom setting. These findings support previous calls for continued examination of the forms and components of DRC employed in schools. Finally, the study found educators rated the use of a combined DRC intervention and progress monitoring with DBR-SIS as favorable.

Direct Behavior Ratings (DBRs) are an emerging tool for gathering data to use in decisions within both traditional and expanded roles for school psychologists. The present study contains two components examining DBRs. The first component uses Generalizability Theory (GT) to examine agreement between two raters using DBRs in two different classrooms, one with trained raters and the other with untrained raters. The second component uses a focus group to solicit raters views regarding DBRs, raters views regarding a DBR training module, and the reasoning behind raters ratings. The G studies provide evidence that rater load (i.e., the number of students rated at one time) may impact rater disagreement; however, training had no discernable effect on reliability. Results from the focus group indicate raters found the DBRs mechanically easy to fill out, but that they had difficulty rating and differentiating between Respectful and Disruptive Behavior. For school psychologists in practice, the results of the present research suggest characteristics of the sample of students being rated (i.e., number of students) should be considered when interpreting DBR scores. For further development of DBR items, additional constructs suited to educators needs, such as a construct targeting social skills, may be beneficial.

Despite the importance of effective classroom management, teachers often report receive surprisingly little classroom management support. Performance feedback has been used to further develop teacher classroom management behavior. To supplement available classroom management assessments with which to provide performance feedback, The Direct Behavior Rating-Classroom Management (DBR-CM) was developed. The present study used a multiple baseline single-case design research design to examine a simplified performance feedback intervention targeting teacher classroom management behavior. Performance feedback was delivered through graphic representation of DBR-CM assessment results following external observation to participating teachers displaying mild to moderate deficits in classroom management performance. Visual and empirical analyses of results indicated noteworthy improvements in overall teacher classroom management behavior in two of five included teachers. These findings indicate a performance feedback classroom management intervention in this form failed to document the required three replication of intervention effects to be considered efficacious. Several factors may explain these findings including study timing, inappropriate inclusion of participants, teacher resistance, shortcomings in performance feedback information provided, and shortcomings of performance feedback dissemination methods.
