ESPI: Classroom Behavior and Asset Scale - Steven W. Lee and Julia Shaftel

Names of Faculty Involved:
Steven W. Lee
Julia Shaftel

Brief Description of Engaged Scholarship:
Student behavior has a huge impact on learning and academic achievement. Positive behavior and social skills lead to better academic growth, not only for the individual student but for those around her as well. Conversely, disruptive and negative behavior impairs academic progress for the student and the group. Over the past nine years the researchers have been studying quick and efficient ways of assessing behavior problems and assets of students at the classroom level. The instrument, the Classroom Behavior and Asset Scale (CBAS), has been carefully developed and studied with large groups of teachers and students in Kansas.
