Frequency Data

Frequency Data

Identify trends in behavior by collecting frequency data.

When to use:

  • Use to track student behaviors or skills.
  • Use for behaviors that happen very often or come in quick bursts.
  • For taking data on how often a behavior happens (known as frequency data).

How to use:

  1. Identify the behavior you are tracking and have your clicker ready.
  2. Each time you observe the behavior, click the tally counter once.
  3. At the end of the observation period, write the total number displayed on the tally counter on the data collection sheet of your choosing and reset the tally counter.


  • Different colored counters could represent different students when data is being taken on a single behavior for more than one student at a time.
  • Multiple counters can also be used to track multiple behaviors for a single student during an observation period. Some examples of this are a.) tracking both appropriate and unwanted behaviors at the same time or b.) tracking both shouting and hand flapping.
