Setting up an Intervention, editing it and enrolling students

Accessing interventions from the dashboard

The Arbor Interventions module provides a comprehensive view of all interventions and allows SEN Coordinators and school leadership to monitor the allocation of resources and track trends over time. You can reach the Interventions Dashboard from Students > Interventions.

Setting up a new intervention

Creating an intervention from the dashboard

Step 1 - Create the intervention

Click +Add from the Interventions dashboard.

Choose if you want to set up intervention groups (these can also be added later). Each intervention can be divided into groups which can take place at different times, in different locations and with different members of staff throughout the week.

Step 2 - Scheduling intervention sessions

Some intervention groups do not need to be scheduled (e.g. students on a report card). These can be left as Unscheduled. It is also possible to have a mix of scheduled and unscheduled intervention groups.

Unscheduled intervention groups are particularly useful for monitoring the progress of a group of students without taking them out of lessons. This may be useful when an intervention needs to escalate e.g. in a ‘Behaviour Intervention’, students may start on a ‘Level 1 report card’ which is unscheduled, but then escalate to ‘Level 2 one to one mentoring’ intervention which is a scheduled session at 8:00 am until 8:10 am every day.

 

To schedule sessions, select the group you would like to schedule sessions for from the Intervention overview page. Click on Intervention sessions in the left-hand menu.

Click +Add to choose which type of session to schedule. In my example, I have selected the option to schedule regular interventions.

Select the days of the week you want the intervention to run on. Here you can choose which week to run on if your school runs a two-week timetable, as shown below. When you have selected your settings, click the Schedule intervention sessions button.

You can choose whether to require an attendance register or a room - great for interventions that take place outside school hours or classrooms.

Step 3 - Add participant criteria and intervention outcomes

The participant criteria define a group of students that you wish to target with the intervention. Once the participant criteria are defined, only students that fall within that criteria can be enrolled in the intervention.

After selecting a filter, you must click Add Filter to set the filter conditions.

Screen_Shot_2019-02-01_at_16.48.31.png

 

Intervention outcomes - the intervention outcomes are a set of targets that you hope to achieve by the end of the intervention. The success of the intervention can be measured by how many of the outcomes each student has met.

Important: it is not possible to edit the Intervention Outcomes after the intervention has started. Without outcomes, there are no success criteria to measure the success of the intervention. 

After selecting a filter, you must click Add Filter to set the filter conditions.

Click Next to complete the Intervention setup and go to the Intervention Overview.

Step 4 - Enrolling students

The Enrolled students page shows a list of all of the students within school that meet the intervention’s Participant Criteria. Students can be enrolled in the intervention by using the Enrol students bulk action.

If a student falls outside the defined intervention criteria, you can still enrol them into the intervention from the Enrol Students page. Click the Enrol a different student button.

Students can also be enrolled in an intervention group by using the bulk actions found on tables throughout Arbor. To enrol students in an intervention:

  1. Select the tick symbol a the start of the student column
  2. From the bulk actions dropdown, select Add to existing Intervention Group
  3. Select the appropriate intervention and intervention group from the Select an intervention slide over
  4. Click Add to Intervention

(Optional) Step 5 - Adding student intervention strategies

In addition to adding outcomes on an intervention level, it is also possible to add individual student strategies to each student enrolled in an intervention.  Student strategies are useful when adding personalised information to an individual, or groups of students in an intervention.

To add Student strategies, go to an Intervention group's dashboard. If you have set up groups in your intervention, select a group.

Click the Add Individual Student Strategies button, and fill in the slide over, then click Save

Please Note: it is not possible to add multiple strategies for one student. Adding a new strategy will overwrite the previous entry.

To add Student Strategies in bulk, select students from the Enrolled Students table and select the Student strategies bulk action.

When a strategy has been added, it can be viewed by clicking on the student’s name.

Creating a quick intervention

If you’ve got the School: Interventions: Administer permission, you can create an intervention right from any page with bulk actions, such as a summative assessment marksheet or the Lesson Dashboard.

Creating a quick intervention

Just tick the students then click the blue pencil icon to select Create New Intervention.

We've also added this Create intervention option to the Quick Actions menu on the Homepage.

Add the details in the slide over and voila, your intervention is created!

If you click the link in the notification, you'll be taken right to the intervention overview where you can add student strategies or complete other actions.

Editing an intervention

You can edit an intervention by going to Students > Interventions, selecting the intervention and going to the Intervention details tab.

Here you can edit any of the intervention’s basic settings such as the Participant Criteria and the Intervention Outcomes, as well as delete the intervention entirely.

Please Note: it is not possible to edit the Intervention Outcomes after the intervention has started. 

To edit the basic details, click the field you would like to update, then update the slide over.

To add groups to an existing intervention, click +Add in the Intervention Groups section on the Overview Tab, and update the slide over to add another group.
