TFI_Overview_6-30-2016 from Missouri SW-PBS on Vimeo.


Component Purpose

The Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI) is a new survey from PBIS Assessments. It is intended to take the place of the Benchmarks of Advanced Tiers (BAT) and the Benchmarks of Quality (BoQ), as well as a number of other surveys that MO SW-PBS schools do not take. The video above provides an overview of the TFI, and where it will fit into the MO SW-PBS training. Below are links to narrated powerpoints that are intended to assist teams in taking each of the subscales (Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3) of the TFI. Below are links to download copies of the TFI scoring guide and the TFI walkthrough form. Finally, Chapter 10 of the Tier 3 Workbook provides more  detailed explanations of the TFI, its purpose, and what it means for Missouri SW-PBS schools. 

The resources on this page are intended to supplement regional training provided by a MO SW-PBS Tier 3 consultant.
