BOSS™ App

BOSS™ App


Behavioral Observation of Students in Schools (B.O.S.S.) software was designed to enable psychologists to observe students in a school environment and record students’ behaviors in real time. The B.O.S.S. software uses interactive buttons labeled to a particular behavior for the observer to press while observing a student during a given duration. The software keeps track of the amount of times a behavioral button is depressed during an observation. The statistics are calculated and displayed at the end of the observation.

Nice app but ... If it consistently allowed me to email the results when I connected to the internet, I would be happier with this app.

Developers ignore critical feedback In nearly half a year since vital feedback was provided to the developers, no steps were taken to improve this very expensive application. I strongly recommend for researchers to use other means to collect BOSS data.

Needs improvement I fully agree with the previous review. I'll add that there are several areas in which the paper version is still superior to this app: there needs to be an option to edit the demographic and data fields. We make mistakes but this gives us no way to correct them. There needs to be a notes section to enter any unusual elements during the observation. Lastly, there should be a slow transition between one interval and the next to allow for reaction time when a student goes off-task at second 14/15.

Limited The observation alerts you at the momentary interval with a beep. This forces me to use headphones. I wish I could opt for vibrate. In addition, it doesn't allow you to change "setting" midway through observation. So, if tge class changes from large group to individual seat work, theres no way to note that. For $30 I wish that it was more advanced.
