Monitoring Older Students

Monitoring Older StudentsOlder students may not respond to visual charts. Some older students respond to self-monitoring or self-rating approaches where they are required to reflect upon their interactions at school.

Directions for using the Self-Monitoring Intervention with older students

Older students still require specific expectations, explanations of the goals and purposes of using the appropriate behaviors, and reminders about the appropriate behaviors. The information gathered from self-rating scales can be presented in a graph form to the student. This can provide the visual demonstration of their progress and entice the older student to participate in the process.
