Students who continue to demonstrate at-risk behaviors after a school implements schoolwide primary (Tier 1) interventions require targeted-group secondary (Tier 2) interventions. This study was conducted to compare the effectiveness of a targeted-group behavioral check-in/check-out (CICO) intervention with the school's standard practice (SP) with respect to decreasing students' off-task and other problem behavior. Researchers used a pretest-posttest control group design with random assignment to compare the two interventions (CICO and SP). Statistically significant differences were detected for systematic direct observation data of classroom behavior; however, statistically significant differences were not demonstrated for rating scale data. Limitations and implications are discussed. (Contains 5 tables and 2 figures.)
