The purpose of the School-wide PBIS Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI) is to provide an efficient and valid index of the extent to which PBIS core features are in place within a school.


How is the TFI used?

Progress Monitoring to self-assess PBIS practices by tier to guide implementation efforts, and assess progress by tier, and build an action plan to focus implementation efforts.
Assessment to determine current PBIS practices in place and needed to facilitate sustained implementation of PBIS.

What is the layout of the TFI?

Tier I (Universal PBIS: Whole School Universal Prevention)
  • Teams
  • Implementation
  • Evaluation
Tier II (Targeted PBIS: Secondary, Small Group Prevention)
  • Teams
  • Interventions
  • Evaluation
Tier III (Intensive PBIS: Tertiary, Individual Support Prevention)
  • Teams
  • Resources
  • Support Plans
  • Evaluation

How is the TFI scored?

Each feature of PBIS implementation is rated as not implemented, partially implemented, fully implemented. Recommendations for data sources to assess each feature of PBIS implementation are included.
