Drill Down Tool Evaluation Brief
Eliason, Bert; Morris, Kelsey
Technical Assistance Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports
Data-based decision making is enhanced by identifying a precise problem statement or question to explore. When looking at a problem, the nearer we get to the precise problem (e.g., where and when it is occurring, who is involved, and why the problem is continuing in context and location) the more quickly we can build an action plan to effectively and efficiently address the problem. The School-Wide Information System has core and additional reports that help the user access that type of information quickly. SWIS has included a tool that allows the user to efficiently mine through and readily explore the data to create an even more precise problem statement. The SWIS Drill Down tool facilitates exploration of a school's office discipline referral (ODR) data by using various filters to examine the school's ODR records. The Drill Down tool was first included in the fall of 2013 when SWIS version 5.0 was released. This paper provides an overview of the Drill Down tool, shares information about its usage, the number and variety of filters being used, and suggestions for more effective and efficient use.
