Behavioral Consultant Application. PRISM Project Technical Report.
This brief paper describes the Peer Coaching Rural In-Service Model (PRISM) Behavioral Consultant (PBC) program, an online tool for teachers that provides advice on handling simple classroom behavior problems. PBC's advice is based on a series of rules and expressions used by the computer program to make inferences and eliminate inappropriate suggestions. The paper describes the principal technologies involved and then reviews the application's logic. The knowledge base resides in a series of normalized database tables and each table is described in some detail. An overview of the application describes the PBC directory structure and how each of the application files functions. (DB)
