CE Offered: PSY/BACB
The Electronic Daily Behavior Report Card (e-DBRC) System
Friday, May 22, 2009
6:00 PM–9:00 PM
North 122 A
Area: EDC/AUT; Domain: Service Delivery
CE Instructor:
MACK D. BURKE (Texas A&M University), Kimberly Vannest (Texas A&M University)
Description: Daily behavior report cards (DBRCs) have long been used in Applied Behavior Analysis as illustrated in the seminal study by Bailey, Wolf, and Phillips (1970) on the use of daily behavior report cards, home-based reinforcement, and problem behavior. DBRCs continue to be a user friendly approach to (a) communicating with parents, (b) documenting intervention effects, (c) anchoring contingencies, and (d) progress monitoring IEP goals and objectives. We have developed a web-based system for monitoring problem behaviors referred to as e-DBRC (see The e-DBRC system was designed for the progress monitoring of individual goals and objectives for students with disabilities. The e-DBRC system can be embedded into check in/out programs, reinforcement programs, and behavior intervention plans. In this workshop, we will introduce participants to the system, model for them the scaling of IEP goals and objectives, describe the logistics of implementation, and discuss ways to use e-DBRC with behavioral interventions. If possible, participants should bring a laptop with wireless access to the internet.
Learning Objectives: 1. Introduce the e-DBRC system conceptual logic. 2. Introduce how to log in, create, and generate DBRC reports. 3. Introduce how to scale IEP goals and objectives for DBRCs. 4. Introduce how to embed DBRCs into existing behavioral interventions.
Activities: Participants will be asked to bring laptops with wireless access. We will go on-line and practice setting up accounts, entering data, and generating reports.
Audience: This workshop is focused on practice and is for behavioral intervention personnel, special education teachers, and others who work with people with problem behavior where progress monitoring is a requirement.
