Behaviour data collection
Data on behaviour is available all the time in schools. Find out how you can prepare for and carry out data collection to help you establish a clear link between the interventions you use and positive behaviour outcomes.
Preparing for data collection
Objective data and subjective perceptions are of little use to your school unless they are analysed. A thorough analysis prior to collating your data will provide an evidence base to inform subsequent actions. Your school data can be interrogated to provide answers to questions such as:
- How are we progressing with targets in our post-audit improvement plan?
- Are there any emerging problems or barriers to achieving our objectives and targets?
- Are new issues arising that mean we should change our actions?
Once your data is prepared you can collate it into a number of data sets. You can then analyse it at a range of levels and across a number of strands.
You can establish effective use of your behaviour data by:
- using data-collection systems
- considering the roles in data collection
- using qualitative data
- identifying vulnerable learner groups.
