The Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI) (pdf) is a self-assessment process in which the PBIS Team will evaluate the development
and implementation of the critical features of School-Wide PBIS.
The TFI measures fidelity of implementation of Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 systems.
The TFI is designed to give your school feedback for future action planning and is
used to determine what level of professional learning in PBIS will be recommended
to your school team.
SWPBIS Tiered Fidelity Inventory Snapshots (pdf) may be used during the implementation of SWPBIS in order to clearly define
each critical element and the research that supports use and potential benefits to
overall school climate.
The School-wide Evaluation Tool (SET) is designed to assess and evaluate the critical
elements of SWPBIS and determine the progress made from one academic year to the next.
The SET results are used to: 1. determine the degree to which critical elements have been implemented
2. identify goals for SWPBIS 3. evaluate progress toward school-wide behavior support, 4. evaluate current SWPBIS procedures 5. compare progress of implementation of SWPBIS from year to year
The SET should be completed:
before the implementation of SWPBIS
6-12 weeks after the implementation of SWPBIS
Annually after the implementation of SWPBIS
The SET is also completed by outside evaluators to determine model PBIS schools.
The Tier II Assessment and Action Plan are completed to evaluate current Tier II behavioral
interventions. Results are used to determine the effectiveness of the interventions
in meeting the needs of the students and whether the interventions are implemented
The Benchmarks for Advanced Tiers (BAT) is a self-assessment of Tier 2 and Tier 3
behavior support systems within a school. It should be completed annually by school
level Behavior Support or Teacher Support Teams. Once the BAT is completed, school
teams utilize the results to develop action plans for further implementation of these
The Booster Readiness Checklist is completed by the school administrator after initial
implementation of SWPBS but prior to booster training sessions. It is utilized to
determine if necessary elements are in place to sustain the implementation of SWPBS.
The SWIS Readiness checklist can be completed by the school PBIS Leadership Team or
school administrator prior to requesting training for SWIS. This checklist determines
whether the school has all the necessary information, resources, systems and supports
needed to utilize SWIS effectively and efficiently.
The Product Book Checklist is completed by school PBIS Leadership Teams to determine
if the necessary sections of their PBIS Product book are in place or needs improvement.
The checklist should be completed annually and prior to a School Evaluation Tool (SET)
The District PBIS Readiness Checklist is completed by district level administration
prior to the district beginning PBIS training. Completion of the items on the checklist
indicates that the district has committed time, funding, personnel, and other necessary
resources to the PBIS process and thereby insures more positive outcomes.
The purpose of the Evaluation Blueprint is to aid in the evaluation process of SWPBS.
Utilize it as a guide when developing evaluation questions, selecting appropriate
evaluation measures, and using the gathered data for decision-making as well as communicating
the results with stakeholders.
The purpose of the Blueprint for SWPBS Training and Professional Development is to
provide guidelines for professional development necessary to support SWPBS systems
and processes. It is not a curriculum for training but an outline for the development
of professional training.
