Monitoring Techniques

The tools used for  initial needs assessment can be used for monitoring purposes.  Surveys and questionnaires can be administered two or three times in a single year.  Personal interviews about whether or not the interviewees have noticed change will provide anecdotal evidence, which often results in insight.

The importance of documentation cannot be over-emphasized.   Clear procedures must be put in place for the documentation of EVERY bullying incident that is brought to the attention of teachers or staff.  This facilitates the determination of whether or not change has occurred.   If incidents to not decrease once anti-bullying programs have been implemented, the programs must be changed.

The following is a sample of a survey given to students prior to and subsequent to a Bully Prevention program.

Questions 1-38 were used as a pre-test prior to the delivery of the program.  At the conclusion of the program, students were given the same test with the addition of the remaining questions.  Surveys are always anonymous.

This is an anonymous survey. There are no right answers or wrong answers. We value your opinions and your time.  Thank you from your friends at The Peace Center!
