ASEBA Direct Observation Form (DOF)

Using the Direct Observation Form (DOF), an observer writes a description of a child's behaviour as it occurs over a 10 minute interval in classrooms or other group settings. The observer scores on-task behaviour at 1 minute intervals and 96 problem items at the end of 10 minutes. Teacher aides and other para-professionals can easily be trained to use the DOF. Observers should have some knowledge of child behaviour and development as well as behavioural assessment.
