Gerald Cox, Licensed Clinical Psychologist
Tiers 1, 2, 3 – Foundation

Utilizing Positive Specific Feedback Across all Three Tiers
Deanna Maynard, Tier 2/3 Consultant, MO SW-PBS; Danielle Starkey, Research Associate, MU Center for SW-PBS
Tiers 1, 2, 3 – Application
The use of specific positive feedback by teachers is a critical piece of SW-PBS implementation in Tiers 1-3. Effective specific positive feedback consists of stating the expectation and specifically describing the behavior, and may include a positive consequence. Research recommends a ratio of 4:1 – four comments in response to desired student behavior to one response to student misbehavior. Learn how to establish and sustain staff use of specific positive feedback at the recommended ratio.
