Preference assessment in which stimuli are presented in pairs
Paired stimulus preference assessment
List 7 purposes of behavioral assessment:
- determine if a _____ with _____ _____
- describe _____ and the _____
- determine _____ _____ between behavior and the environment
- provide information needed to develop _____ _____
- monitor _____ _____
- evaluate _____ _____
- evaluate _____ and _____
Determine if a problem with behavior exists
Describe behavior and the environment
Determine functional relations between behavior and the environment
Provide information needed to develop behavior plans
Monitor program implementation
Evaluate treatment effectiveness
Evaluate maintenance and generalization
Preference assessment in which all stimuli are available for the entire session. Subject is free to interact with as many or as few stimuli as they want. No stimuli are removed during the assessment.
Free operant preference assessment
Functional assessment is AKA ...
Functional behavior assessment (FBA)
An uncontrolled factor known or suspected to exert influence on the DV
The first functional analysis research was published by ...
Indirect (informant-based) PA
Interview or questionnaire
Duration based assessment designed to determine the extent to which stimuli displace problem behavior.
Competing stimulus assessment
Descriptive assessment is AKA ...
Direct descriptive functional assessment
Concluding that the IV has not produced a change in the DV when in fact it has
Type II error
FA design in which one condition is run at a time; less common because of amount of time required
Preference assessment in which all stimuli are presented on the first trial, and selected stimuli are removed on subsequent trials.
Multiple stimulus without replacement (MSWO)
Treatment phase is divided into subphases, each involving a different behavioral criterion (i.e., different value of the IV). Criterion in each subphase more closely resembles the terminal behavioral goal.
Changing Criterion Design
Systematically withdrawing treatment components to see if behavior change is maintained
Component analyses / sequential withdrawal
The effects on a person's behavior in one condition can be influenced by the subject's experience in a prior condition
Used to clarify unclear selection-based preference assessment results
List 3 indirect assessment methods:
The "standard" FA was designed by ...
Iwata et al. 1982
How much effort is needed for reinforcement to be earned (compared to other behavior which might earn the same thing)
Efficiency of behavior
Name 2 basic features of FA:
Measurement of behavior under test and control conditions
Functional analysis is AKA ...
List 4 steps during an interview:
Ask open-ended questions
Ask follow-up questions
Write notes or use recorder
This preference assessment identifies the greatest quantity of possible reinforcers
Single stimulus PA
Naturalistic direct observation PA
Observation of daily activities (relies on Premack principle)
Concluding that the IV has produced a change in the DV when in fact the relation does not exist
Type I error
A type of behavioral assessment used to determine functional relations between challenging behavior and environmental events
A study by Worsdell et al., 2000 determined that _____ was necessary to consistently evoke problem behavior during FA.
a contingency (consequence manipulation)
This preference assessment is most effective for identifying one highly preferred stimulus
Multiple Stimulus With Replacement (MSW)
This preference assessment results in a clear preference hierarchy
