Tiered Fidelity Inventory
The purpose of the SWPBIS Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI) is to provide a valid, reliable, and efficient measure of the extent to which school personnel are applying the core features of school-wide positive behavioral interventions and supports (SWPBIS). The TFI is divided into three sections (Tier 1: Universal SWPBIS Features; Tier 2: Targeted SWPBIS Features; and, Tier 3: Intensive SWPBIS Features) that can be used separately or in combination to assess the extent to which core features are in place.

Key Feature Evaluation
The Key Feature Evaluation (KFE) is a tool used to provide feedback to schools based on their school-wide PBS program and implementation. Four specific sections are evaluated: School-wide PBS Tier 1, Prevention: Implementing School-wide & Classroom Systems, Correcting Problem Behavior, and Developing Self-Discipline.
