8. Self-Monitoring

Component Purpose

Self Monitoring is a Tier 2 standard protocol intervention that involves teaching students to observe and record their own actions and behaviors. It is appropriate for students who have already acquired the social skill, and who can discriminate between the target skill and other behaviors. The resources on this page are intended to supplement MO SW-PBS regional Tier 2 training.

Component Outcomes

  • Describe students who are most likely to benefit from the Self-Monitoring intervention.
  • Tell main findings of research associated with Self-Monitoring.
  • Identify implementation components of Self-Monitoring.
  • Design and implement Self-Monitoring as a Tier 2 intervention that is contextually relevant for your students and school but adheres to implementation of critical features.
  • Deliver implementation training according to audience needs (i.e., full staff, participating teachers, students, and families).
  • Determine how student data will be collected and graphed.
  • Monitor progress and make decisions for students who participate in a Social Skills Intervention Group.
  • Create a process for fading intervention supports.
  • Determine criteria for exiting the intervention.
  • Adapt or modify Self-Monitoring as a fading procedure for other Tier 2 interventions (CICO, Small Group Social Skills, etc.), as well as a classroom support for all students.
