In Tier 3 of a school-based behavior prevention model, FBA is applied to students with significant and/or dangerous problem behavior. The purpose of FBA at Tier 3 is to identify that antecedents and consequences of students’ problem behaviors’ with enough confidence to develop and individualized behavior intervention plans that are likely to be effective. The data collected at Tier 3 include structured interviews and systematic direct observations. This chapter reviews the process of collecting these data using forms designed to make the process efficient and effective. The chapter concludes by describing the process of developing precision hypothesis statements that combine the data collected in Tiers 1 and 2 with the new data from Tier 3.
