About location and time statistics
This is a combination code that is placed in the FIRST THREE CHARACTERS of an
Incident description. The report that provides the statistics
finds a colon in the second character position in the incident description:
- The location code is the first character, eg, C for
Classroom or H for Hallway
- Use a colon as the second character :
- The time code is the third character,
eg, B for Before school.
An incident that took place in the classroom before school might be recorded
as "C:R Threw chair and left the school..."
Coding for time & location
- works on the first three characters only in any incident/concern record
- and the second character must be a ':'
This means you can't have L1 and L2 for parts of lunchtime, but you could use F (first) and S (second)...
It also means that the report won't distinguish between B1 and B2 if you
attempt to code Block 1 and Block 2 this way (the 1 and 2 will be the
second characters and so the report will ignore them.
[Using the colon as the identifier leaves slashes available for
clever coding other
characteristics of incidents.]
Location (sample codes)
- Classroom C
- Hallway H
- Netball Court N
- Oval 0
- Little Oval L
Play area P
- Unknown U
Time (sample codes)
- Before school B
- Lesson 1 1
- Lesson 2
- Lesson 3
- Ongoing O
- Frequent F
- Unknown U
Using the above coding system (see entries below)
- C:2 would mean Classroom in Lesson 2
- H:R would mean Hallway at Recess....
Reading a student's list of incidents may reveal useful patterns
- Which days of the week are more problematic?
- Are the problems in class or elsewhere?
- Are there more problems in the afternoon or earlier in the day?
- ... ?
