Team-Initiated Problem Solving (TIPS) is a problem-solving model to use during PBIS team meetings. This model addresses the various barriers to efficient problem-solving meetings by breaking down the problem-solving process into six critical steps: 

  • Identify the Problem with Precision
  • Identify the Goal for Change 
  • Identify a Solution
  • Implement the Solution
  • Monitor Impact of Solution and Compare Against Goal
  • Make Summative Evaluation Decisions

These steps guide teams through a data-based decision-making process that leads to desired outcomes. TIPS is applicable to varied data sources (e.g., DIBELS, AIMSweb, SWIS, etc), content areas (e.g., academic and/or, behavior), and levels of application (e.g., school, district, state).
