Record & Track Behavior with Masking Tape

Found in: tracking behavior

Here’s a handy way to evaluate students you think need to be monitored for special services. It is important to have specific records of their behavior. I have found it easier to keep statistics by creating a code (“OOS” for “out of seat,” for example) and putting little strips of masking tape right on my inner arm. I put the student’s initials on a piece of tape and tally the behaviors during several class periods. I have been able to record up to six kids in a period this way. At the end of the period, I stick the tape on my desk or a piece of paper, and at the end of the day, I chart it. This is much more helpful for evaluation than guessing how often the behavior happens, and it allows me to see trends in the behavior quite easily.
