Behavioral Questionnaires & Checklists
Behavioral questionnaires and checklists can help teams clarify skill deficits and environmental variables impacting the student's behavior. They can be completed by multiple people and compared for differences or similarities in results.
Please follow these guidelines:
1) Ratings must be paired with direct observation
2) Results may reflect the rater's perceptions about the student, instead of actually representing the student. Consider the impact of race, culture, language, and other individual differences.
3) Use caution not to skew toward the negative. We want to stay focused on what strengths and skills the student has!
Get to know yourself & how your background impacts your interactions and understanding of a student.
