How CritterCoin Can Help You Analyze and Improve Your PBIS Program
By Ashley Irwin
We all know how important it is to create a positive learning environment for your students. One way to do this is through implementing a PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) program. With CritterCoin, you can take your PBIS program to the next level by using the Data Insights premium feature.
With Data Insights, you can analyze and interpret the data collected by CritterCoin to identify patterns and trends in student behavior. This data can help you make informed decisions about how to improve your PBIS program to better meet the needs of your students.
How CritterCoin Data Insights Works
CritterCoin collects data on student behavior through the use of custom coins, which represent desired behaviors or school values. These coins can be awarded to students by teachers and other school staff for demonstrating positive behavior.
Data Insights uses this data to generate reports and visualizations that provide insights into student behavior patterns. These reports can help you identify which behaviors are most commonly exhibited by your students, as well as which students are receiving the most rewards for positive behavior.
How to Use Data Insights to Improve Your PBIS Program
Once you have analyzed the data collected by CritterCoin using Data Insights, you can use this information to make changes to your PBIS program. For example:
- If you notice that certain students are consistently receiving more rewards than others, you can make a conscious effort to recognize and reward positive behavior from all students.
- If you notice that certain behaviors are more commonly recognized and rewarded, you can make a point to highlight other positive behaviors that may be overlooked.
- If you notice that certain times of day or certain classes have more positive behavior, you can work with other teachers to share strategies for encouraging positive behavior across all classes and times of day.
Types of Data CritterCoin Analyzes
CritterCoin collects various types of data that can help schools improve their PBIS program. Here are some examples...
- Behavior data: CritterCoin tracks the behaviors for which students earn coins. Schools can use this data to identify trends in positive behaviors and adjust their PBIS program accordingly.
- Coin distribution data: CritterCoin also tracks how many coins are distributed to each student and the reason why. This data can help schools ensure that their PBIS program is fair and equitable for all students.
- Redemption data: When students redeem their coins for rewards, CritterCoin tracks what rewards are most popular. Schools can use this data to adjust their reward system and ensure that they are providing incentives that students actually want.
- Teacher data: CritterCoin tracks which teachers are awarding the most coins to students. This data can help schools identify which teachers may need additional support with implementing PBIS in their classroom.
- Student data: CritterCoin tracks how many coins each student earns and how they spend them. Schools can use this data to identify which students may need additional support with their behavior and reward them for positive changes.
By using CritterCoin Data Insights to analyze and improve your PBIS program, you can create a more positive and supportive learning environment for your students. Not only will this improve their academic outcomes, but it will also help them develop the social and emotional skills they need to succeed in life.
