The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of a Check in/Check out program on disruptive behavior in third grade students. Participating students were matched with a teacher and met with them briefly at the beginning and end of the school day. Student behavior was tracked using the existing behavior plan in the school. Behavior was tracked the week prior to the intervention as a pre-test and the week following the intervention as a post-test. The hypothesis that the Check in/Check out program would have no impact on disruptive behavior was rejected because there was a significant difference found between disruptive behavior before and after the intervention.
