The Standards Self-Assessment Tool
The Standards Self-Assessment Tool (SSAT) is provided as a tool to complement the 2018 NaBITA Standards for Behavioral Intervention Teams. BITs can assess their performance on each of the 20 standards in order to identify areas of best practice and opportunities for improvement. The SSAT includes descriptions of teams performing along each of the 4 performance levels as well as suggested team documents to review in order to gather evidence for your assessment. The tool should be used in conjunction with further training and study. Thank you to Dr. Amy Murphy for authorship of this rubric.
Exemplary (18-20 points with no areas ranked below proficient)
BIT operations exemplify the standards of practice identified by NaBITA. Focus on identifying ways to sustain this level of performance and improve on any areas that are merely proficient.
Proficient (15-17.75 points and 3 or fewer areas rated below proficient)
BIT operations are proficient. They meet the basic standard of practice identified by NaBITA. Review the standards and related resources to continue improving and developing. Create a plan of action for continuous improvement. For any standards rated below proficient, review the resources outlined in the Team Training Template related to each of these areas.
Needs Improvement (12-14.75 points or more than 3 areas rated below proficient)
BIT operations include some components related to BIT standards of practice, but they need additional development. For any standards rated below proficient, review the resources outlined in the Team Training Template related to each of these areas.
Deficient (0-11.75 points)
BIT operations are not in alignment with standards of practice identified by NaBITA and may be increasing the risks associated with BIT activities. For standards rated below proficient, review the resources outlined in the Team Training Template related to each of these areas.
Note: Dangerousness and violence, from a student , faculty, or staff member is difficult, if not impossible, to accurately predict. This training topic offers research-based techniques and theories to provide a foundational understanding and improved awareness of the potential risk. The training or tool should not be seen as a guarantee or offer any assurance that violence will be prevented.
