Evaluation is the process of collecting and using information for decision-making. A hallmark of School-wide Positive Behavior Support (SWPBS) is a commitment to formal evaluation. The purpose of this SWPBS Evaluation Blueprint is to provide those involved in developing Evaluation Plans and Evaluation Reports with a framework for (a) addressing evaluation questions that may be most useful, (b) selecting evaluation measures and measurement schedules that practically meet the needs of local decision-makers, and (c) using evaluation information for active decision-making at the school, district, region, and state levels. The authors propose a model for addressing evaluation questions using repeated cycles of core indicators that address considerations about the context (e.g., who, where, when, why) in which implementation of SWPBS is to occur or has occurred, the input (e.g., what) that directs or directed the SWPBS implementation, the fidelity with which core elements of SWPBS are or were put in place (e.g., how), and the impact of those core elements of SWPBS on the social and academic behavior of students (e.g., what difference is expected or achieved). They also emphasize that evaluation of SWPBS often will be expected to address questions related to replication, sustainability, and continuous improvement. Appended are: (1) PBS Implementation Self-Assessment and Planning Tool; (2) School Profile Template; (3)Sample Newsletter; and (4) Evaluation Self-Assessment. A list of resources is also included. (Contains 6 tables and 23 figures.)
