General

DBR Connect is a customizable online system for rating student behavior during a specific period of time (e.g., 45 minutes of math class). Behavior ratings take less than 1 minute to complete and can be completed by a psychologist, teacher, or school staff member. Ratings can be completed daily as part of progress monitoring or used on an as-needed basis for behavior support plans or to monitor the effects of medications or interventions. Check out the “Get Acquainted” page for more information.

Users can rate an unlimited number of students an unlimited number of times within the yearly subscription period. Charts and reports are also unlimited. No additional fees are required.

A list of common reasons for academic and behavior problems, along with evidence-based interventions (EBIs) that address those concerns, is provided in the interpretative reports.

DBR Connect was designed for students in Kindergarten through Grade 8. Teachers of students in Grades 9–12 can still use DBR Connect as a screening and progress monitoring tool; however, the research-based risk-level scores are not available for high school students.

No official training certification is required. We recommend you complete the online training module that is part of your subscription. This is available via the Help section on the product Web site after you log in.
