I have spent the last few hours trying to clean off my laptop so I can return it to the MOST awesome media tech person I have ever worked with! In the process of doing that, I came across the pictures I "lost" in my pictures folder. Now that I have found them, I can continue my post on data.
of collecting data is always easier when you have the right tools. One of my favorites...
I end up with tons in my car by the end of the week.
This is one of my data collection sheets I keep at my Morning Meeting table. One of my kids got carried away with the BENQ & spilled my coffee all over the table.
This is the type of clipboard I use. Mine has stuff taped all over it, but I couldn't find it. It's packed up somewhere!
This is a file folder task that is in a center basket for 3 of my kids. Some times, I have to add keys to the bottom of my data sheets, but most of them are there in the key. I tape a lot of stuff to the back of my tasks (or to the bottom of work baskets).
This is an old data sheet that I used for a while to document the behavior of one of my kids, but it only had one behavior to track and I was constantly flipping back & forth to the pages..
so I created this one instead.
This one tracks multiple behaviors in the same 15 min increments and I can keep 2 days worth of data on the same page.
This is a data sheet that I got from someone else. I was using it to try and determine an antecedent for behavior. It certainly helped me narrow it down to 2 antecedents. Too bad my kid is moving on, but so is his data, so hopefully his teacher next year will be able to tease it out even further. I kept these in a folder near the timeout area, because it was the most convienent. I have a folder for each of my kids that I keep in a standing file on a shelf with at least 3 pens (just in case one runs out). The colored pens especially helped on these pages, because I would write in a different color for each day. It helped with teasing out antecedents.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
