About location and time statistics

This is a combination code that is placed in the FIRST THREE CHARACTERS of an Incident description. The report that provides the statistics finds a colon in the second character position in the incident description:

  • The location code is the first character,  eg, C for Classroom or H for Hallway
  • Use a colon as the second character :
  • The time code is the third character, eg, B for Before school.

An incident that took place in the classroom before school might be recorded as "C:R Threw chair and left the school..."

Important Note 

Coding for time & location 

  • works on the first three characters only in any incident/concern record 
  • and the  second character must be a  ':' 

This means you can't have L1 and L2 for parts of lunchtime, but you could use F (first) and S (second)...

It also means that the report won't distinguish between B1 and B2 if you attempt to code Block 1 and Block 2 this way (the 1 and 2 will be the second characters and so the report will ignore them.

[Using the colon as the identifier leaves slashes available for clever coding other characteristics of incidents.]

Location (sample codes)

  • Bus                 B
  • Classroom       C
  • Hallway           H
  • Netball Court    N
  • Oval                 0
  • Little Oval         L
  • Play area         P

  • Specialist         S
  • Unknown          U
  • Various            V
  • ...

Time (sample codes)

  • Before school   B
  • Lesson 1          1
  • Lesson 2          2
  • Lesson 3          3
  • Recess            R
  • Ongoing           O
  • Various            V
  • Frequent          F
  • Unknown          U
  • ...

Using the above coding system (see entries below)

  • C:2 would  mean Classroom in Lesson 2 
  • H:R would  mean Hallway at Recess....




Reading a student's list of incidents may reveal useful patterns

  • Which days of the week are more problematic?
  • Are the problems in class or elsewhere?
  • Are there more problems in the afternoon or earlier in the day?
  • ... ?
