Product Description:

View our recorded webinar: Using the PreSET(tm) to Measure, Monitor, and Achieve Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports in Early Childhood Settings presented by Elizabeth Steed and Tina Pomerleau.

How well is your early childhood program implementing positive behavior intervention and supports (PBIS)? Now there's a comprehensive tool that helps programs find out how well their interventions are working--and what areas they need to work on to improve children's social-emotional skills and behavior.

Based on the widely used and highly regarded School-wide Evaluation Tool (SET), PreSET(tm) assesses program-wide PBIS in all types of early childhood settings. Conducted twice a year by an unbiased outside observer--such as a behavior consultant, inclusion coordinator, or school psychologist--PreSET(tm) takes an accurate snapshot of a program's PBIS through a review of program documents, classroom observations and interviews with the administrator, teachers, and three children from each classroom.

PreSET(tm) will help programs

  • Take first steps toward improving kindergarten readiness. Only 40% of preschool children have the social-emotional skills they need for kindergarten. With the results of PreSET(tm), programs will know what they need to work on to better support these critical skills.
  • Assess universal features of effective PBIS. PreSET(tm) assesses classroom and program-wide PBIS variables across 8 key categories, including behavioral expectations, family involvement and program support.
  • Measure progress toward goals. PreSET(tm) generates a simple percentage of how well a program is implementing PBIS, so programs can see at a glance how they're progressing.
  • Report better outcomes to OSEP. PreSET(tm) helps programs determine how well they're addressing social-emotional skills and behavior, so they can work on trouble spots and report improved outcomes to OSEP.
  • Target quality improvement efforts. With the included Action Plan form, programs can easily develop a plan to strengthen behavior interventions.
  • Determine professional development needs. What do teachers need to learn to better support children's social-emotional development? PreSET(tm) results highlight which areas should be targeted for future professional development.

The complete PreSET(tm) consists of this Manual and a CD-ROM. The Manual gives users thorough guidance on conducting and scoring PreSET(tm), a technical appendix of PreSET(tm) research, and a case study that walks the reader through an entire evaluation. The CD-ROM includes all the printable forms: the four PreSET(tm) forms (Administrator Interview Guide, Classroom Interview and Observation, Classroom Summary, and Scoring Guide), plus two forms for planning next steps (an Action Plan and Sample Feedback Form).

With this comprehensive tool, early childhood programs will have the data they need to determine whether PBIS is working, target interventions and program improvements, and work toward better social-emotional development for all young children. Learn more about the entire PreSET(tm) system.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
