THE COPING ANALYSIS SCHEDULE FOR EDUCATIONAL SETTINGS PERMITS THE CODIFICATION OF ALL OPERANT BEHAVIOR OBSERVED IN THE CLASSROOM, INTO ONE OF THIRTEEN CATEGORIES. ALL BUT ONE OF THE THIRTEEN CATEGORIES ARE DESIGNED TO CHARACTERIZE THE CHILD'S ECONOMY WITH THE EXTERNAL ENVIRONMENT. HOW A CHILD MANAGES THIS ECONOMY IS ASSUMED TO BE OF CRUCIAL IMPORTANCE IN DEVELOPING CULTURAL BACKGROUND. IT HAS BEEN USED WITH CHILDREN AS YOUNG AS TWO AND AS OLD AS SIXTEEN. OBSERVERS CAN BE TRAINED IN APPROXIMATELY TWO TO THREE WEEKS. THE SECOND MEASUREMENT INSTRUMENT, THE SPAULDING TEACHER ACTIVITY RATING SCHEDULE, IS DESIGNED TO FOCUS ON THE EFFORTS OF TEACHERS TO BRING ABOUT CHANGE IN THE BEHAVIOR OF CHILDREN IN THE CLASSROOM. THE MEASUREMENT INSTRUMENT INCLUDES THREE AREAS OF TEACHER-CHILD TRANSACTIONS, CHARACTERIZED AS COGNITIVE (INTELLECTUAL), SOCIAL RELATIONS, OR PSYCHOMOTOR SKILLS. BEHAVIOR IS CODED AS IT OCCURS AND CAN BE QUICKLY SUMMARIZED IN TABULAR OR GRAPHICAL FORM. THE TRAINING OF OBSERVERS FOR THIS TEST ALSO TAKES FROM TWO TO THREE WEEKS. COPIES OF BOTH MEASUREMENT INSTRUMENTS ARE INCLUDED IN THE BOOKLET. THIS DOCUMENT WAS PUBLISHED BY THE EDUCATION IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM, 2010 CAMPUS DRIVE, DUKE UNIVERSITY, DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA 27706.
