1

Social science is top-down while natural science is

bottom up

2

Social science is deductive while natural science is

inductive

3

Direct contact and ongoing measurement of phenomenon before developing interpretations

induction

4

Characteristics of Natural Science of Behavior

1. Focus on observable behavior and objective, operational definitions
2. Use standard, absolute, units of measurement
3. Use experimental analysis
4. Identification of functional relations

5

Standard

Everyone uses them

6

Absolute

Value does not change from one instance to the next

7

Universal

Apply to every instance

8

Dimensional quantity of behavior means

Entailed in behavior itself
Not an abstraction
Sensitive to change in IV
Visible to the naked eye

9

Properties of behavior

Count and Time

10

Count

Repeatability
Countability

11

Time

Behavior occurs in time
Behavior takes time to occur

12

Dimensional Quantities of behavior

Frequency/ rate (count/time)
Latency (temporal locus)
Duration (temporal extent)
Celeration ( count/ time/ time)
Inter-response time

13

Index of learning

Celeration

14

Free-Operant Responding

Can be emitted at any time
Discrete
Does not require much time for completion
Produces a wide range of response rates

15

Dimensional unit of behavior sensitive to subtle manipulations of IV

Rate of Response

16

A ratio of count/time which is an ongoing, continuous recording that produce standard slopes representing frequency/ rate of responding

Cumulative Record or Standard Graphic Display
