School-based teams will be trained in the implementation of the Team-Initiated Problem Solving (TIPS) process to ensure high-quality, data-driven decision making. Use of TIPS procedures can help school-based problem solving teams identify, address, and resolve students' social and academic behavior problems.
TIPS is a conceptual model for problem solving that has been operationalized into a set of practical procedures to be used during team meetings. A key feature of TIPS is its emphasis on team members' ongoing use of data to inform decision making about each of the problem-solving processes (e.g., using data to identify and define significant problems; establish baseline and goal rates/levels of the problem; select solutions likely to be effective, given the hypothesized function of the problem behavior; monitor and achieve implementation integrity of solution actions; and monitor problem behavior and adjust solution actions as necessary to achieve the objectively-defined resolution goal).
