Presented by: Dr. Guy Bruce, 8/06/2021
In this video, Dr. Guy Bruce presents the third part of his series on EARS. Picking up where he left off in part two, Dr. Bruce gives an in depth explanation on the procedures and strategies of using the EARS process to solve an organizational performance engineering problem at a school for children with autism and gives an introduction and tutorial on ProgressCharter, an app that can be utilized to effectively streamline the EARS process.

D. in Educational Psychology from the Behavior Analysis in Human Resources program at West Virginia University, Dr. Bruce has taught behavior analysis in both undergraduate and graduate programs and consulted with variety of organizations.

EARS is an acronym for:
1) Evaluate student progress;
2) Analyze causes of teacher performance problems and the performance problems of those who provide resources, training, and management to support the teacher;
3) Recommend changes in teacher and provider resources, training, and management; and
4) Solve provider performance problems by designing and implementing recommended solutions.
In addition to conducting EARS workshops, he is writing a second book, Engineering Schools for Student Success, and designing a web-mobile application, “Progress Charter‚” that will make it easier for schools to design and implement the EARS process.
