The Seven Step Process (HRP)™


1.    Download an order form from our website or copy one from the back of any of our British WISE booklets.   Send your completed order form to the address shown with a cheque for the required sum (For example, £195 for up to 500 children for the High Risk Package) or email it to us with a request for a tax invoice to be paid upon receipt of materials.

2.    We send you templates for all your questionnaires, a spreadsheet for data entry and guidelines via email.    If you have additional queries or specific requests you can easily contact Helen or Neil via the British WISE enquiry email line (enquiries@britishwise.co.uk) or by telephone on 01603 890778

3.     Your easy-to-read guidelines are provided to help you through the process of data collection. Print or photocopy your questionnaires directly from the templates. This means you can control the numbers of questionnaires needed and always be sure you have enough copies for all staff and students.  Staff complete questionnaires for each child in their class.  All questionnaires have been designed with the time pressures of teaching in mind and thus each takes under five minutes to complete.  Each child also completes their own questionnaire.  Younger children can be encouraged with additional guidance for each question; however, they should not need more than ten minutes to complete all questions.  Older children can complete their more detailed questionnaires in ten – twenty minutes.

4.   A specially prepared Excel spreadsheet is provided for your data entry.  This can be completed in less than 10 hours of employee time for an average sized school.  Please note:  We have designed the seven step process to ensure that British WISE offers an affordable evaluation and assessment service for your school.  If you would like additional help and support with data collection and/or data entry we are happy to arrange this for you.

5.     Email your completed spreadsheet to British WISE at your convenience.

6.    Analyses of all data is then personally completed by Dr. Helen Street.  Your school’s data is checked for accuracy, reliability and completeness.  It is then analysed in detail using the latest statistical software. Helen ensures that scale items fit together in a valid way and that questionnaires have been completed accurately. Reliability is measured and validity reviewed. Helen accounts for missed items and inconsistent answers. Overall measures are then calculated and compared to norms.

7. Your school is provided with a confidential list of students indicating clinical levels of mental health problems for each of the constructs assessed (depression, anxiety, conduct disorders, hyperactivity and inattention, bullying and aggression).  This list is emailed to a designated contact in confidence FIVE working days from receipt of your completed data entry sheet.
