An ABC data collection system is one way to organize, measure, and record behavioral observations. The antecedents (events that come immediately before a behavior) and consequences (responses to those behaviors) that influence behavior are analyzed. Those results, combined with other indirect and direct assessment measures, can be used to formulate a hypothesized function or "reason why" certain behaviors occur.
This resource contains 4 printable ABC checklists. Each one has a slightly different format and style.
•Landscape checklist (with and without hypothesized function) - containing 2 data collection sections per sheet
•Portrait checklist - containing 8 data collection sections per sheet
•Fill in the blank ABC data sheet – containing 4 data collection sections per sheet

Additionally, there is a link to an editable digital ABC data sheet (Google Form.) To access this resource, you will need to create a free Google account (if you don’t already have one.) The link will prompt you to ”copy” the form. From there, you can save it in your own Google Drive by clicking the folder icon next to the star. Create one form for each student by copying and changing the [Student’s] name section at the top of the form and saving a new copy each time. Then, simply fill out the Google Form each time a behavior occurs. Each time the data is submitted, it will be combined with previous entries and populates into a bar graph for easy analysis.
