Direct Behavior Rating Overview

This presentation provides an overview of the Direct Behavior Rating (DBR). A DBR is a method for collecting data on student behavior that merges a rating scale approach and direct observation. The presentation describes: (a) considerations before using the DBR, (b) completing the DBR and (c) using the DBR to monitor progress and evaluate behavior. Play the video to see Daniel Maggin, Assistant Professor of Special Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, a member of NCII’s Behavioral Intervention and Behavioral Progress Monitoring Technical Review Committees, and a NCII trainer present the material or download the PowerPoint slides to view the slides with the audio embedded within the presentation. The DBR Overview is a refresher and extension of the Monitoring Student Progress for Behavioral Interventions, a part of the DBI Training Series.
