Assessment use in schools goes beyond providing academic data. This may include Response to Intervention (RtI), Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP), Functional Behavior Assessments (FBA), or others. Student behavior data are often gathered to provide educators ways to maintain student focus to increase academic opportunities.
Use the questions to guide an original response:
Reflecting on RtI and FBA assessments and similar, clarify how behavior correlates with academics? Support your claim with current research findings and citation.
Describe challenges or successes of how accommodations or modifications factor into behavior and academic assessments.
Describe a situation when a teacher-created behavior assessment may be necessary and beneficial. Create and post at least a 3-item example.
