Abstract

The success of function-based interventions depends not just on the quality of procedures but also on the extent to which procedures are implemented as planned. Too often in schools, effort is committed to functional assessment and behavior support plan design, only to be followed by weak implementation. This study used a multiple baseline across participants design to examine whether a functional relation exists between a treatment package consisting of (a) self-monitoring treatment fidelity, (b) collecting data on student behavior, (c) entering fidelity and student behavior data into an online data management application, and (d) reviewing those data weekly using graphs generated by the application. Results indicate improved treatment fidelity and student behavior were associated with the treatment package. Potential contributions are discussed in terms of establishing efficient systems for schools that provide the structure for effective implementation of function-based interventions.
