Program: Small Business Innovation Research      [Program Details]

In prior research and development, the project team developed LiveSchool, an online platform to track student behavior. With this Phase I funding, the team will develop and test a prototype of an administrator dashboard. The dashboard will generate reports on individual student behavior patterns across classes and on the prevalence of behavioral issues across different teachers. The dashboard will also produce recommendations to guide decision-making on the selection and implementation of classroom behavioral interventions. At the end of Phase I in a pilot study with 40 administrators, the researchers will examine whether the prototype functions as planned, and whether administrators understand and find the reports useful for guiding behavioral interventions in classrooms.
