Swoszowski, N. C., Jolivette, K., Fredrick, L. D., & Heflin, L. J. (2012). Check in/Check out: Effects on students with emotional and behavioral disorders with attention- or escape-maintained behavior in a residential facility. Exceptionality, 20, 163-178.

This data-based manuscript investigated the effects of the Tier II check in/check out intervention with students in a residential facility which was implementing the PBIS framework with fidelity. The authors found that the students whose inappropriate behaviors were maintained by attention improved their behavior more than those maintained by escape. The authors provide future research directions for this line of Tier II investigations.
