The Effects of Class-Wide Function-Related Intervention Teams (CW-FIT) on Students' Prosocial Classroom Behaviors

ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, University of Kansas
Students with challenging, disruptive behavior have difficulty learning in school and their behavior adversely impacts the learning of other students and the classroom teacher. Class-Wide Function-related Intervention Teams (CW-FIT) is a promising approach that teachers can use to prevent and reduce problem behavior and increase prosocial classroom behaviors. Previous studies have demonstrated that CW-FIT produced improvements in student appropriate classroom behaviors which led to increased available instruction time. The purpose of this investigation was to systematically replicate CW-FIT adding to the empirical research base supporting it. A novel aspect compared to prior studies was measurement of the behaviors actually reduced and increased by CW-FIT, providing a new contribution to the literature. Students in four classes and their teachers participated in this study. An ABAB reversal design combined with a multiple baseline design was used to demonstrate intervention effectiveness and experimental control. Implications for research and practice are discussed.
