Data Collection for School Based Occupational Therapists Meryl S. Cooperman, MS, OTR/L
Why this project? l I was surprised to be told that I needed to develop my own system for data collection when I started work at the IU. l Why am I re-inventing the wheel?
Data collection methods currently used by school based OT’s l Individually developed rubrics l Individually developed checklists l Individually developed anchors for levels of achievement or other descriptive
Preschool Data Collection Methods • Shared system of charts that can be customized by each therapist. • Formats include yes/no, percentiles, and goal attainment type scaling.
Data Collection for Progress Monitoring l Determine what data is to be collected ¡Evidence based practice ¡Aligned with standards l Identify where data will be collected ¡Therapy room, classroom, contrived situation, naturally occurring, etc. l Frequency of data collection l Who will collect the data
Samples of Tools currently used for Data Collection
Goal Attainment Scale – Preschool version
Traditional Goal Attainment Scale
Comparison of Current Systems Used by School Based Occupational Therapists l Discrepancies in how students are measured l Limited ability to share information for professional learning because of difference in what and how things are measured l Inefficient use of therapist’s time
Outcomes of this project: l I have developed tools for my own data collection l I have shared data collection tools with the other school based OT’s l A need has been identified to look at data collection and alignment to standards l Communication has begun to discuss data collection as a department
Next Step: Build a foundation for School Based Occupational Therapists Evidence based practice Progress Monitoring and data collection standards
l That promotes consistency and quality services for our customers (students and the school district) l That promotes the exchange of information and professional learning l That helps with time management and efficiency
l Thanks to the school based OT’s that shared information, the pre-school OT’s that shared their data collection tools, and Peggy Hoffman for the information on goal attainment scaling.
