Flashcards in BASC Notes Deck (21):
1

When discussing behavior, the politically correct terms to use are...

Socially inappropriate vs. socially appropriate
OR
Maladaptive or adaptive

2

When evaluating behavior what are comparisons based upon...?

matched peers

3

What is the most important factor in evaluating behavior?

age

4

Give three examples of ancillary (supporting) factors include...

1. Gender
2. Social Factors
3. Environmental

5

In addition to comparisons, age, and ancillary factors which other two factors need to be taken into consideration?

Contextualized (in context) behavior
and
Deviations from the norms

6

In the context of classroom observations, what are the two major issues?

Severity
Frequency

7

_______ tends to receive an immediate referral, where as __________ tends to be referred only if it greatly affects achievement.

Severity
Frequency

8

Like most forms of assessment, behavioral assessment is based upon concept of ____________.

Deviation

9

What does it mean to deviate?

Differ from the typical or average

10

A behavior is considered severe if it is exhibiting these four components:

1. Consequence: likelihood of producing injury
2. Impact on instruction
3. Externalizing*
4. Deviation from cultural norms

11

Formal behavior assessments with the BASC, the norms are based upon....

1. age
2. gender
3. clinical vs general populations

12

What does BASC stand for?

(Behavioral Assessment System for Children)

13

The four major data sources from the BASC include:

1. Self-report
2. Teacher Report
3. Parental Report
4. Classroom Observation

14

Error associated with testing; with repeating testing, likelihood of a score falling within a range
90% or 95%

Confidence Intervals

15

Which indices Check on pattern of responses,
Foci teachers and parents, Excessively negative responses,
Produce an unrealistic number of problems

F Index

16

-Comparison groups
-Select one or two comparison groups
-Groups: General, female, male, clinical

Normative Scales

17

Comparing Composite Scores: When comparing composite scores, one must look at 3 major areas:....

-Compare externalizing, internalizing, and school problems
-Trying to determine if difficulties are greater in one area than in another
-Get three pieces of data

18

Comparing Composite Scores: subtract to compare area…ex. Internalizing – externalizing

Difference

19

Comparing Composite Scores: how many times out of 100 would such a difference be obtained due to error factors

Statistical significance

20

Comparing Composite Scores: how often does a difference of that size occur in the general population

Frequency

21

Analyzing the BASC: Statistical analysis (covariance structure analysis) reduces the set of behaviors to which four dimensions?...

1. Externalizing problems
2. Internalizing problems
3. School problems
4. Adaptive skills
