Tier 2 & 3 intervention

Tier 1 intervention helps lay out the expectations you have for all the students in your district or school, depending on their grade level. Because these behaviors are shared by all your students, we call this universal intervention. But what happens when a group of students or a specific student needs a bit more of a push?

This is where Tier 2 & 3 interventions come into play. Where Tier 1 is universal, Tier 2 interventions are targeting specific groups of students and Tier 3 intervention are targeting individual students.

Creating a Tier 2 behavior

Before you even start creating behaviors, make sure that there are tags for the groups of students you want to assign behaviors to. This can vary from school to school, district to district, but tags are required to use Tier 2 interventions.

Learn more about student tags here.

Now that your tags are set up, you can get to creating Tier 2 behaviors:

  1. Click on Tiers 2 & 3 in your sidebar navigation
  2. Click the purple Add behavior button
  3. Decide if you want to create a Positive or Negative behavior
  4. Enter a description and select a goal (optional) and priority 
  5. Click on the Tier 2 - Targeted prevention field to select tags

When you’re done, click Save in the lower right corner to add your behavior to the list. If you want to create another behavior after this one, click Save and create new.

Note: A single behavior can be assigned to tags and to specific students, thus being both Tier 2 and Tier 3 at the same time.

Creating a Tier 3 behavior

Tier 3 behaviors are attributed to specific students in your roster. To create a Tier 3 behavior:

  1. Click on Tiers 2 & 3 in your sidebar navigation
  2. Click the purple Add behavior button
  3. Decide if you want to create a Positive or Negative behavior
  4. Enter a description and select a goal (optional) and priority 
  5. Click on the Select students button

This brings up the student list, search and select all the students you want to assign the behavior to. When you’re ready, click the purple Apply button to close the student list.

When you’re done setting up this behavior, click Save in the lower right corner to add your behavior to the list. If you want to create another behavior after this one, click Save and create new.

Note: A single behavior can be assigned to tags and to specific students, thus being both Tier 2 and Tier 3 at the same time.

Editing behaviors

To edit an existing behavior, select it in the list. Make any change you want and, when ready, click Save.

Deleting behaviors

To delete a behavior you no longer use:

  1. Click the More options (...) button to open the submenu
  2. Select Delete on the list
  3. Click Delete to confirm

Assigning a goal

You can assign goals and competencies to existing Tier 2 & 3 behaviors:

  1. In the Tiers 2 & 3 section of your dashboard, scroll down the list to see the goals that are not assigned to any goal
  2. Tick the checkboxes of the behaviors you want to assign to the same goal 
  3. Click the gray Assign goal button
  4. Select a goal or competency from the list
  5. Click Save to confirm

Assigning behaviors through the student list

In the student list, you can assign and unassign student tags, which affects which students have access to Tier 2 behaviors. If you already assigned a behavior to a tag, select a student (or several students) on the list and select the Change tags option to assign a tag to students.

Learn more about student tags here.

The student list is also a great place to manage Tier 3 behaviors as you have access to the student profile at the same time. To start:

  1. Click on Students under Users on your sidebar menu
  2. Select the student you want to assign behaviors to on the list
  3. Click the Tiers 2 & 3 tab on their profile

Tier 2 behaviors assigned to the student are listed at the bottom. These are for reference only as you can’t edit them here.

To unassign a Tier 3 behavior, click the More options (...) button and select Remove in the menu.

To assign a Tier 3 behavior, click the Assign Tier 3 behavior button in this section. You can either Choose an existing behavior from your Tier 2 & 3 list or Add a new behavior.
