In Tier 1 of a prevention model, otherwise known as universal prevention, FBA is applied to all students in a school. The purpose is to develop interventions that can improve behavior school-wide. In order to identify problem behaviors and their antecedents and consequences, school teams review school-wide behavior data such as office discipline referrals (ODRs). ODRs are reviewed to determine “The Big Six” patterns, which are referrals per day per month, location of referrals, time of referrals, behaviors referred, students referred, and possible motivation for referred behavior. Based on the patterns from The Big Six, school teams develop logical school-wide interventions that should efficiently reduce problem behaviors in the school. School-wide interventions are then monitored formatively for effectiveness.
