What’s Out There: A Comparison of 

Behavioral Feedback and Monitoring Systems

Presenter: Mickey Garrison

Session Description: A feedback and monitoring system can be a valuable tool in reaching difficult-to-teach students. These relationship-building programs are not one-size-fits-all solutions. This session will explore the essential elements of a successful feedback and monitoring system by objectively comparing and contrasting available resources. By analyzing a variety of monitoring systems, participants will better understand how these programs can help hard-to-reach students succeed, and will have the knowledge necessary to make informed choices about how to establish their own program.
