Parts of an FBA
FBA terms
FBA Tools
Review (Measurement)
MISC
100

These are the behaviors the FBA will focus on. Should have no more than 3-5.

What is a Target Behavior?

100

This is the behavior you WANT students to exhibit in place of the behavior you are trying to eliminate that serves the SAME function of the target behavior

What is a functionally equivalent replacement behavior (FERB)?

100

This is a data collection tool that allows the observer to record the occurrence of a target behavior as well as what happened before and after the behavior.

What is an ABC observation sheet?

100

Number of times a behavior occurs

Frequency or Count

200

This is the part of the FBA that consist of current office referral data and daily behavior data

Summary of Existing Data on Behaviors of Concerns

200

concrete description of target behavior, include examples, stated in terms of dimensions of behavior. ask, what does the behavior look like? everything must be observable and measurable. also define the antecedent and consequence stimuli

What is an operational definition?

200

This is a is a simple checklist that outlines the likes, dislikes and interests of a child 

What is a reinforcer inventory?

200

A measure of the total time that the behavior occurs.

What is duration?

200

Student needs to be directly taught a behavior skill to improve behavior

What is a skill deficit?

300

Review all existing information on a student (cumulative file, special ed/behavioral file, etc) look for patterns in discipline referrals, incident reports, previous FBA's, Psych reports, or BIP's. Be careful about confidential information.

What is a records review?

300

This type of FBA is more informal, uses simple language, and is far less technical. The primary tool is the interview and discussion.

What is a indirect FBA?

300

This is a two-page interview used by school personnel who are building behavior support plans.  It includes a routine analysis and has parts A and B. It takes no more than 15 minutes to complete.

What is the The Functional Assessment Checklist for Teachers and Staff (FACTS)?

300

Ratio of count per observation time.

What is rate

300

Student knows the behavioral skill but does not perform the behavior in the natural setting.

What is a Performance Deficit?

400

The 3 components of an FBA

What is indirect assessment, direct assessment, functional analysis?

400

This approach to an FBA uses direct observations and possibly assessments/experimental techniques to determine function and preferences. This type of FBA is recommended when the suspected behaviors are severe, persistent, and frequent. 

What is a direct FBA?

400

This is is a rating scale designed to help identify the motivation behind a target problem behavior. It yields scores on subscales that represent possible functions of behavior.  Subscales include: Sensory; Escape Demands; Escape Attention; Attention; Tangible

What is the Motivation Assessment Scale?

400

The elapsed time from the onset of a stimulus to the time that the response started

What is latency?

500

This is the outcome of the records reviews and interviews. you are trying to develop an understanding of the behavior. this statement specifies the antecedents, behaviors, and function. must test.

What is a hypothesis statement?

500

This is the part of the FBA where we determine what activities/times of the day when behavior does and does not occur.

What is a routine analysis?

500

This is when the learner is placed in a variety of consequence conditions to determine the consequence that is associated with high levels of problem behavior. typically the conditions include attention, demand, alone, control.  SHould be done when the team is unsureof the fucntion of the learner's behavior.

What is a functional analysis (FA)?

500

Elapsed time between two successive responses.

What is Interresponse time (IRT)?
