Workshop #W73
CE Offered: PSY/BACB
CANCELED: Data Collection in the Schools—Implementation, Integration, and Integrity in the Age of Accountability
Saturday, May 26, 2012
8:00 AM–11:00 AM
605 (Convention Center)
Area: EDC/DDA; Domain: Service Delivery
CE Instructor: Kaycee Bennett, M.A.
BENJAMIN N. WITTS (University of Nevada, Reno), KAYCEE BENNETT (University of Nevada, Reno), ELIZABETH SEXTON (Washoe County School District)
Description: Over the last 10 years, the Washoe County School District in Nevada has worked to develop an integrative program to help students who struggle behaviorally. In the course of their work, the team has created integrated streams of data that support each other without the necessity of additional resources. By concentrating on data that are easy to collect, code, and interpret, and that are redundant in nature, individuals in a school setting can provide accurate data reports with limited staff involvement. This workshop is aimed at individuals in school settings with either complex systems that require constant data collection, or individuals with limited personnel who require accurate data collection. Through the methodologies developed and disseminated through these efforts, it is anticipated that participants will have the ability to implement or adjust data collection such that greater utility and accuracy occur.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this workshop, participants should be able to:

Select or create appropriate data collection tools

Interpret one data set with the support of another data set

Use multiple data sets to provide feedback to team members

Create and maintain unique databases for their schools

Activities: Workshop attendees will participate in the creation of mock data streams and coding systems from which multiple analyses can be derived.
Audience: This workshop has been designed primarily for educators, school administrators, school psychologists and counselors, and behavior analysts working in school districts.
