Way to Reduce Hallway Disruptions

Parent Interventions

A game like intervention developed by school psychology researchers in University of Tennessee College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences may help reduce hallway disruptions among elementary school children.

The intervention rewards classes of students for quickly transitioning from one room or activity to another. When implemented with three classes of students from grades one through six at a summer school programme, disruptions during class transitions were reduced by up to 74 percent.

Hallways are daunting spaces for teachers, according to the study, which was published in the Journal of Positive Behaviour Interventions. Being quick in transitions helps significantly reduce inappropriate behaviour.


In the study, students were timed for one class transition a day (for example, from the gym to an academic classroom). A goal time was selected before the class and explained to the children.If the class met the goal time,they were rewarded at the end of the transition.
