How was the scoring rubric developed?

This instrument was originally created by Diana Browning Wright, PENT Co-Founder and Dru Saren of the California Department of Education-Diagnostic Centers, with input from G. Roy Mayer, California State University, Los Angeles. It was designed to address the needs of the field for an instrument to evaluate the quality of behavior intervention planning across the state. Four hundred “successful” behavior plans submitted by the statewide PENT Cadre were analyzed by Wright and Saren in the development of this tool. It was then evaluated by the nine member PENT leadership team prior to field-testing across California by the PENT Cadre. Following PENT Cadre finalization, 40 graduate students in behavior analysis and school psychology at California State University, Los Angeles under the leadership of G. Roy Mayer, scored the behavior intervention plans to further establish reliability and provide further insights in its use. This revised version has gone through a similar process, with Diana Browning Wright and G. Roy Mayer integrating further findings and comments from the field and 100 graduate student reviewers who have subsequently scored hundreds of plans in the three years following the original edition.

PENT research has shown that the BIP-QE II Scoring Rubric has validity and reliability. The higher the score on the rubric, the more likely the plan will be implemented with fidelity and the higher is the likelihood that substantive change in behavior will occur for the student.
