At the end of each day, please take a minute to record which strategies you successfully used with your student by placing a check in the appropriate column and row. Indicate any unusual or unexpected circumstances under the Comments section. You may implement some of the strategies each day, while other strategies may not be used. Our goal is to implement as many of the strategies as possible as frequently as possible. Because this is a research project, we need an accurate accounting of how often each strategy is used. Please complete the form as honestly and accurately as possible. At the end of each week, please visit our website and transfer this information to our electronic form.
