Guidance and Sample Behavior Profiles

Guidance and Sample Behavior Profiles

Using Education Sample Behavior Profiles

Countries and USAID activities have begun to integrate behaviors into their work to impact curriculum development, instructional quality, staff accountability, policy creation, family and community engagement, and other key areas.

The first step in Behavior Integration is deciding which behaviors you want to prioritize (Offline Prioritization Tool - Coming Soon!).

The second step is analyzing the priority behaviors selected for your country based on country- and context-specific research, i.e. create Behavior Profiles

We have provided sample education Behavior Profiles to help you develop your own country-specific profiles. In addition to the ways mentioned in the overview, these sample Behavior Profiles can help you:

  1. Demonstrate the pathways to change from behavior to strategies, emphasizing the importance of behavior-led (not intervention-driven) programming.
  2. Hold discussions with education stakeholders on how an activity might be refined based on the identified pathways to change.
  3. Engage with education stakeholders on how activities might be aligned around behaviors and the pathways to change.

Remember: These sample Behavior Profiles provide a good example of a Behavior Profile, but are not intended to take the place of in-country research or your own country-specific Behavior Profiles.
