A Software to Track and Analyze Classroom and School Discipline Incidents and Office Discipline Referrals (ODRs)


In order to help schools track their progress relative to positive school and classroom climate, students’ academic engagement and self-management, and school safety, it is necessary to evaluate students' appropriate and inappropriate behavior.  Relative to the latter area, when students demonstrate high levels of inappropriate behavior, they often receive an Office Discipline Referral (ODR).  Critically, the ultimate goal of the ODR is to decrease or eliminate future inappropriate behavior, while increasing and reinforcing future appropriate student behavior.  In order to accomplish this, it is important to understand the "what, when, where, with whom, and why" underlying students' inappropriate, ODR behavior.

In order to help analyze school-level ODRs, we have designed a down-loadable software program, the ADDRESS--the Automated Discipline Data, Review, and Evaluation Software System.  When ODR data is inputted into the ADDRESS, it is capable of managing, tracking, and analyzing individual, classroom, grade-level, and school-wide student discipline and behavioral outcomes.  In fact, the ADDRESS allows school personnel to efficiently enter important ODR data, and it tracks and analyzes these data with a simple "mouse-drag" and the touch of a button.  When ODR data and reports are analyzed over time, a school can identify student, staff, situation, and school location "hot-spots" that can be further analyzed and solved with targeted, strategic interventions.

The ADDRESS is free, and can be downloaded to your computer below.  To facilitate its use, we have created a series of webinars (also below) that will help you with different aspects of its use.

ADDRESS Tutorials

The video tutorials provide step-by-step guidance for key aspects of installing and implementing the ADDRESS.  The videos do not provide comprehensive coverage of all the ADDRESS features and capabilities.  You are strongly encouraged to download the ADDRESS manual to learn about the robust features of the ADDRESS not covered in these tutorials.  The primary purpose of the tutorials is to provide instruction in the critical steps required to begin using the ADDRESS quickly and efficiently.


Playing the Videos

The tutorials are in windows media video format (.wmv) and typically will require a Windows Media Player--unless your computer is configured with a different media software that can play windows media video (.wmv) files.   In most cases, you do not need to be concerned with the configuration of your computer unless an error results when attempting to play the videos.

Each of the tutorial topic links will direct you to a separate web-page containing the relevant tutorial links.  As much as possible, the tutorials have been broken into a series of short video segments to accommodate different variations in internet connection speeds.  Fast (cable modem , DSL) connections can usually play the videos directly from the web page.  If you have a slow internet connection, it may be more convenient to download the tutorial files for later viewing.  Tutorial download times can be lengthy if you have a slow internet connection.  Instructions for playing the tutorials directly from the web-page and downloading the files for later viewing are presented on each tutorial topic page.

You may also choose to download the various tutorial files irrespective of your internet connection speed.   By downloading and saving the files to your computer, they are always quickly available to you for later review or training.
