Pinpoint which positive behavior interventions are effective with PreSET
Based on the widely used and highly regarded School-wide Evaluation Tool (SET), the Preschool-Wide Evaluation Tool™ (PreSET™) assesses program-wide PBIS in all types of early childhood settings. Conducted twice a year by an unbiased outside observer—such as a behavior consultant, inclusion coordinator, or school psychologist—PreSET takes an accurate snapshot of a program’s PBIS through a review of program documents, classroom observations, and interviews with the administrator, teachers, and a few children from each classroom.
- Assess universal features of effective PBIS across 8 key categories, including behavioral expectations, family involvement, and program support
- Better support critical social-emotional skills children need for kindergarten
- Measure progress toward goals and see at a glance how your program is progressing
- Target quality improvement efforts and develop a plan to strengthen behavior interventions
- Identify professional development needs for teachers
