Starting from an introduction on the main theoretical and methodological PBS issues, this contribute presents the design of the BASE system, inspired to the previous evidence-based Web Health Application for Adhd Monitoring (WHAAM), and aimed at promoting a digitally assisted school-wide intervention, according to the PBS framework. The web-based BASE application will expand the functionalities included in the WHAAM application according to the theoretical and methodological constraints defined by the PBS approach. While the original WHAAM application was focused only on the functional assessment applied to problem behaviors of ADHD children, the new BASE web application will include features useful for a larger field of intervention. The data collected with the BASE application will be used to take informed decisions about the strategies to increase the well- being of students at school, preventing and reducing the occurrence of problem behaviors, teachers' burnout, students' drop out, and property destruction. At the end, ongoing future developments and preliminary conclusions will be discussed.
