FAST™ is the first and only K-12 assessment system to include behavioral screening and progress monitoring tools as part of one, simplified solution.
All FAST behavior assessments are founded upon multiple studies suggestive of their psychometric defensibility.
- The Social, Academic, and Emotional Behavior Risk Screener (SAEBRS) is supported by several peer-reviewed studies indicative of its diagnostic accuracy in detecting student risk for social-emotional and behavioral concerns.
- The Direct Behavior Rating (DBR) tool is founded upon strong peer-reviewed evidence of its sensitivity to change in student behavior in response to intervention.
Every FAST™ behavior assessment is designed to be used quickly and efficiently.
- It takes only 1-3 minutes for a teacher to rate a student using the SAEBRS or for a student to rate him or herself.
- DBR progress monitoring groups can be set up in only a few minutes and each rating takes only a few seconds.
With the FAST behavior suite, educators receive an integrated assessment system. Results from the SAEBRS and mySAEBRS assessments suggest the domains within which a student is experiencing concerns (i.e., Social, Academic, or Emotional). And the DBR system can used to monitor students in their documented area of risk.
The DBR progress monitoring system gives educators flexibility in determining the behaviors they would like to monitor and the dimensions of those behaviors that are of interest.
Educators can choose from a wide range of behavior targets within the domains of Social Behavior, Academic Behavior, and Emotional Behavior. Behaviors can then be rated in regards to both their frequency and intensity.
