| June 23, 2017

Academic Year 2016-2017 GBG Data

Another year has passed with Lane County and the Good Behavior Game continues to grow. Growth includes changes Lane County made to help break down barriers in data collection. Overall, the GBG data this academic school year shows that the game is working.


Is the Good Behavior Game Working?

Again, the short is answer is yes. The graphs show there was a decrease in disruptive behavior from the baseline count to the final count. As always, there were more variables this year in data collection. We will continue to address to help improve data collection validity.


Data shows a decrease in disruptive behavior across all grade levels from Baseline to Final count.

What Are The New Variables Lane County Faces? 

The biggest threat to Lane County was limited classroom availability. The staff member responsible for counts was only part-time. Hence, only three observations throughout the academic year were completed. For the upcoming school year, Lane County has a full-time person responsible for data collection. As a result, having more observations allows for data validity and observable change.

For those familiar with any program being implemented there is always one question that is on the mind of everyone: “Is it working?” and here at Lane County Public Health we are no different. We provide the best training we can to practicing professionals. As well as develop an excellent data collection and analysis team. We want to know if our programs are working. Results from analyzed 2015-2016 data are as follows.

Is the Good Behavior Game working? 

The short answer is, yes. When it comes to data analyses, there are always uncontrollable variables.

Data shows an overall decrease in disruptions from Baseline to Final count.

What sort of uncontrollable variables exist for Lane County? 

  • For Lane County, the biggest variable is that there is not always a consistency in the classroom observer. Although disruptive behaviors seem universal in a specific way, different people can view classrooms differently.
  • There is also the variable of there being a substitute teacher when a classroom count happens.
  • Another huge barrier is that schools sometimes forget to have their counters complete the observations.

What is Lane County doing to counteract these variables?

  • Lane County has provided training to over 280 education professionals since 2012. This ranges from classroom teachers, to administrators, to some substitute teachers. The training provided by Lane County helps to make GBG implementation as smooth as possible.
  • Lane County also has engaged in the process of limiting the people who count the disruptive behavior.
