4:1 Behavior Management System (BMS)®

Description

What’s Included:

  • 4:1 BMS® software (application files, including an SQL database backup, for the agency to download, restore, and host on their internal server) 

As agencies across the country work to improve outcomes, an area of increasing interest is the encouragement of prosocial behavior and the prevention and management of noncompliant (violation) behavior. The 4:1 Behavior Management System (BMS)® was designed to support effective, research-based policies and practices in this area. 

 

The 4:1 BMS® contains internal logic to guide staff through:
  • Determining consistent and appropriate responses to noncompliant behavior, taking into account a person’s level of risk, the severity of the behavior, the person’s criminogenic needs, and the purpose of the response (accountability vs. behavior change)
  • Determining appropriate responses to prosocial attitudes and behaviors, taking into account their relationship to a person’s criminogenic needs, and the level of mastery and habituation of the behavior
  • Identifying the conditions under which a departure from the presumptive response range is appropriate
 
The 4:1 BMS® enables agencies to easily customize the software to account for local:
  • Methods of assessing risk
  • Determinations around the severity and merit of specific behaviors
  • Resources available to respond to prosocial and noncompliant behavior
  • Values around the factors that should be considered to determine the appropriateness of an override or underride

 

The 4:1 BMS® provides the data, information, and ease of use staff and managers need to document and understand the impact of practice in this area:

  • With the touch of a button, staff can generate reports reflecting the history of a person’s behavior—both prosocial and noncompliant—over any specified period of time, along with responses to this behavior and a calculation of the ratio of prosocial to noncompliant responses
  • Staff can readily generate a similar report for their entire caseload
  • Managers can quickly run reports by individual staff member, unit, or agency to understand the frequency of behaviors and responses, the ratio of behaviors to responses, the time lapse between behaviors and responses, the frequency of behaviors by risk level, the frequency of specific behaviors and the use of specific responses, and more

 

The 4:1 BMS® provides the capacity for customization, including:

  • Incorporating an agency name and logo into the software banner, and selecting from among six available color schemes
  • Specifying job titles and hierarchies of positions within the organization, and the decision-making authority of each relative to behavior management
  • Autogenerating emails from staff to supervisors, court personnel, or others under certain circumstances, such as when a staff member recommends a response outside of a presumptive response range

 

Technical Specifications

The 4:1 BMS® is written in C# leveraging the .Net 4.6 Framework using Microsoft SQL Server 2017. A standard internet browser, such as Chrome or Microsoft Edge, can be used for this online application. HTML pages are delivered to the client browser by the application upon a user request. The web pages also include JavaScript functions where applicable and the use of cookies. Server-side validations are performed to ensure all validations are met.

Requirements for an agency to host the 4:1 BMS® are a Windows server operating system with IIS 8 and .net framework 4.6 along with SQL Express 2017 or full license. This application can be hosted alongside existing applications. The bandwidth consumption is minimal. There should not be large amounts of data or traffic to cause a drain on resources.
