Summary

    About This Product

    The BIMAS-2 is a brief, repeatable multi-informant (teachers, parents, self) measure of behavior/social emotional learning skills that is useful for universal screening, progress monitoring, outcome assessment, and program evaluation. The BIMAS-2 operates on a web-based platform using an online Data Management System with dynamic analysis, graphing and reporting options. This allows the manipulation of data in a variety of ways in real time to assist in evidence-based decision-making within an Multi-Tier System of Supports (MTSS) framework.

    The BIMAS-2 includes 34 change-sensitive items that integrate universal screening of behavior concerns and social emotional wellness, with seamless integration of progress monitoring of behavior and mental health related interventions. The BIMAS change-sensitive items (analogous to the CBM with academic achievement) represent the ability of the BIMAS-2 to detect reliable change when interventions are implemented at the district and/or small group or individual student level. The items were developed and selected based on over 10 years of research and a scientific model for selecting items that are sensitive to change called Intervention Item Selection Rules (IISRs; Meier, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2004). It is the only commercially available measure build from this perspective in mind from the grounds up.

    The BIMAS Flex Monitoring feature introduced in our early work represents the authors philosophy that a progress monitoring tool must be flexible to address the treatment monitoring needs of a student. It is the student who should be the center of attention, not the tool. That is, the tool should adopt to the needs of a progress monitoring plan, not force items/behaviors in a student’s plan (i.e., selecting items from a screener or a diagnostic scale).

    With the BIMAS-2, the user can select our recommended items with national/norm refenced data, but also create their own items and criteria to access the progress of an intervention incorporating input and data from multiple sources (teachers, parents, clinicians, the child) and other IEP or behavior intervention plans.

    Universal Screening

    Universal screening with the BIMAS-2 standard form allows a dual-view of data interpretation. The Standard view offers a view of Behavior Concerns (Conduct, Negative Affect, Cognitive/Attention) and Adaptive skills (Social and Academic functioning). The BIMAS-2 SEL offers a CASEL based view of the data with the five CASEL SEL scales of Self- Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Skills, and Responsible Decision Making.

    The BIMAS-2 screening data can be dynamically manipulated to describe performance at the district, building, classroom and teacher, and individual student level using a nationally representative normative group. Screening accuracy data across all informants (Teachers, Parents, Students) demonstrate the BIMAS-2 exceptional sensitivity to celebrate the positive growth/development of students as well as detect students needing additional supports.

    Progress Monitoring

    You will find features of Progress Monitoring throughout the BIMAS-2. Starting with the Universal Assessment process, the user/administrator can monitor the progress of the screening process. In the data review process, when data exist across a few universal screening periods the BIMAS-2 generates reports across these periods. Reports can be generated ranging from individual student data to district, building, and classroom levels. A visual presentation of progress with T-scores, colorful and simple to understand tables and graphs, is further enhanced with statistical comparisons (i.e., RCI-Reliable Change Index) to demonstrate the effect size of the changes occurring following an intervention.

    Program Evaluation and Equity Analyses

    The BIMAS-2 can be used to assess the effectiveness of interventions implemented (e.g., school-based mental health, special education programs provided on an individual or small group basis. Numerous comparisons can be done on-line comparing groups across variables such as gender, race, ethnicity and more. Data can be exported in CSV format for further statistical analysis.

    Scales & Forms

    The BIMAS is comprised of standard scales (BIMAS Standard) which can be used as a screening device, to collect baseline data at the beginning of intervention, and for periodical progress monitoring. The BIMAS also is comprised of a pool of items that can be used to develop customized behavioral intervention goals for frequent monitoring (BIMAS Flex).

    BIMAS Standard

    • Can be used as a brief screener, a tool for treatment monitoring, or for program evaluation (or combination).
    • Consists of 34 change-sensitive items on 5 subscales with forms for parents and teachers (ages 5-18 years), and youth (ages 12-18 years) to complete with both standardized scale-level and item-level norms established from a U.S. national sample closely matching the census.
    • Also available is a non-norm-referenced clinician form for rating youth 5 to 18 years.

    BIMAS Flex

    • Distinct, more specific behavioral items (10-30) for each of the 34 BIMAS Standard form items on the 5 scales.
    • Both positively and negatively worded items to select from.
    • Assessors can customize treatment goals by selecting behaviors of concern and create mini-assessments for.
    • Interventions Plans can be saved and used again with other students, all with the flexibility to import them and save them for future use.
    • Frequent progress monitoring to assess change in behavioral concern or adaptive skills.
