Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI)

WHAT: The Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI) is a single, efficient, valid, reliable fidelity survey designed to guide implementation and sustained use of SW-PBiS.  Using the TFI, teams measure the extent of SW-PBiS at all three tiers.

WHO:  School Systems Planning Teams-a team of three to eight people including the administrator and district coach-with input from Tier I, II, and/or III teams.  It is strongly recommended that the team complete the TFI with an external SW-PBiS coach serving as a facilitator.

WHEN: Ideally conducted three times per school year.

WHY: The purpose of the school-wide PBIS Tiered Fidelity Inventory is to provide an efficient and valid index of the extent to which PBIS critical features are in place within a school.    The primary purpose is to help school teams improve and serve as a guide for implementation for Tier I, II and/or III practices.

WHO: Staff

WHEN: Annually- usually in the Spring

WHY: Results of the SAS are effective in identifying the staff priorities for Action Planning.
