This study investigated the correlation between the classroom based IEP driven daily behavioral point sheets and BASC (Behavioral Assessment System for Children) subset scores using linear regression analysis. Students receive behavioral point sheets as a tracking device to monitor behavior for class by class and day by day basis as well as their promotion to mainstream classrooms. The BASC is a comprehensive behavioral analysis tool used for diagnostic services (primarily Emotional Behavioral diagnosis) in schools. The purpose of this study was to determine the correlation between the daily behavioral point sheets and BASC scores (if any). Results indicated weak correlations overall with moderate correlations between certain BASC subsets and daily point sheets. As a pilot study, it is stated with assurance little correlation was found between the IEP daily behavioral point sheets and the BASC.
