Horner, Robert H.; Ward, Caryn S.; Fixsen, Dean L.; Sugai, George; McIntosh, Kent; Putnam, Robert; Little, Hannah D. – Journal of Positive Behavior Interventions, 2019
We propose in this article that a central element in the large-scale implementation of evidence-based practices is the process by which initial investment in local demonstrations is leveraged into larger implementation efforts. We offer a definition of this "resource leveraging" and propose a process for both measuring and reporting the…

Nese, Rhonda N. T.; Nese, Joseph F. T.; McIntosh, Kent; Mercer, Sterett H.; Kittelman, Angus – Journal of Positive Behavior Interventions, 2019
In this study, longitudinal data from 708 schools across five states in the continental United States were analyzed to measure the time between initial training and adequate implementation of Tier I Schoolwide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports over 5 years and the extent to which it varied by school characteristics. Results indicated…

Garbacz, S. Andrew; McIntosh, Kent; Vatland, Christopher H.; Minch, Devon R.; Eagle, John W. – Journal of Positive Behavior Interventions, 2018
The purpose of this study was to identify and examine how schools implementing schoolwide positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) were engaging families in their Tier I PBIS systems. In addition, reported implementation of practices and the availability of resources were examined in relation to fidelity of PBIS implementation.…

McIntosh, Kent; Massar, Michelle M.; Algozzine, Robert F.; George, Heather Peshak; Horner, Robert H.; Lewis, Timothy J.; Swain-Bradway, Jessica – Journal of Positive Behavior Interventions, 2017
Full and durable implementation of school-based interventions is supported by regular evaluation of fidelity of implementation. Multiple assessments have been developed to evaluate the extent to which schools are applying the core features of school-wide positive behavioral interventions and supports (SWPBIS). The "SWPBIS Tiered Fidelity…

Mercer, Sterett H.; McIntosh, Kent; Hoselton, Robert – Journal of Positive Behavior Interventions, 2017
Several reliable and valid fidelity surveys are commonly used to assess Tier 1 implementation in School-Wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (SWPBIS); however, differences across surveys complicate consequential decisions regarding school implementation status when multiple measures are compared. To address this concern, the current…

McIntosh, Kent; Kelm, Joanna L.; Canizal Delabra, Alondra – Journal of Positive Behavior Interventions, 2016
Research has shown principal support to be a critical variable for implementing and sustaining evidence-based practices. However, there remains little understanding of the factors that may influence a principal's personal decision to support a practice. The purpose of the current study was to examine events that influenced principals' support for…

McIntosh, Kent; Mercer, Sterett H.; Nese, Rhonda N. T.; Strickland-Cohen, M. Kathleen; Hoselton, Robert – Journal of Positive Behavior Interventions, 2016
In this analysis of extant data from 3,011 schools implementing school-wide positive behavioral interventions and supports (SWPBIS) across multiple years, we assessed the predictive power of various school characteristics and speed of initial implementation on sustained fidelity of implementation of SWPBIS at 1, 3, and 5 years. In addition, we…
