Intervention for Control Children
details on how to obtain this measure, contact
The Intervention for Control Children measure consists
of 3 items that are completed by an observer. The first question
asks whether the child is participating in a classroom where PATHS
is being given. The PATHS curriculum, Promoting Alternative Thinking
Strategies, (Greenberg, 1994) is an elementary-based program that
emphasizes teaching students to identify, understand, and self-regulate
their emotions. The second question asks whether the child is participating
in a classroom that includes peer pairing. The responses for these
first two questions are: don't know; not applicable; no; and, yes.
The third and final question asks whether the child is involved
in any other interventions. These other interventions are listed
as follows: 1) behavioral management, 2) child middle school transition
program, 3) friendship group/social club, 4) home visiting, 5) mentoring
group, 6) parent group, 7) parent middle school transition program,
and 8) other.
Responses for this measure are recorded on a nominal scale. As
such, no scaling program is used. Only the number of responses per
question was calculated.
This measure was specifically designed for the gathering of general
data for use with the Fast Track project. It was not meant for widespread
