Structural analysis (SA) is an assessment process developed to analyze hypothesized relationships between contextual variables and subsequent behaviors. In the present study, an alternating treatments design investigated the effectiveness of environmentally-based interventions to reduce disruptive behaviors and increase on-task behaviors of students exhibiting challenging behaviors in a general education classroom. Results indicated that a brief SA can be conducted in general education classrooms and that these strategies resulted in increases in pro-social behaviors and academic engagement for students who display challenging behaviors.
