This chapter covers Tier 1 assessment practices that may be used to support the intervention strategies discussed in Chapter 2. Sections include understanding absenteeism as a multifaceted construct, categorizing absences, evaluating district trends in absenteeism, assessing reasons for missing school, assessing school climate, universal screening practices, and school-based attendance teams. A successful Tier 1 prevention system for school absenteeism must adopt the premise that absenteeism is a multifaceted construct. As such, assessment at Tier 1 for absenteeism must be wide-ranging, comprehensive, and include multiple targets. A successful Tier 1 approach for school absenteeism will include an assertive and proactive assessment component that identifies students with a range of attendance-related problems as well as potential attendance difficulties.
