Data Collection - Labels
Data is taken on labels and then moved to a tracking sheet at a convenient time.
When to use:
- Use to track student behaviors or skills in a busy classroom environment.
- Use for behaviors that happen throughout the day.
- Good for taking many kinds of data.
How to use:
- Place pages of blank labels on clipboards around the room. Quickly grab a clipboard and use a label any time you need to record data.
- Set up your data label with important information such as name, date, and target behavior.
- Each time the student engages in the behavior, make a mark on the data label.
- At the end of the observation, during a planning period, or at the end of the day, peel the label off and place it on the student’s data collection sheet.
- Keep a writing utensil attached to the clipboards.
- Print labels specific to the data you are collecting and place on clipboards around the room for easy access.
