Flashcards in Chapter 6 Deck (17):
1

data

the medium with which bX analysts work

2

graphs

relatively simple formats for visually displaying relationships among and between a series of measurements and relevant variables

3

bar graph

histogram
simple and versatile format for graphically summarizing BX data

4

cumulative record

was developed by skinner as the primary means of data collection in EAB (graph)

5

cumulative recorder

device that enables a subject to actually draw its own graph

6

overall response rate

the haverage rate of response over a given time period or condition of an experiment

7

local response rate

refers to the rate of response during periods of time smaller than that for which an overall rate has been given

8

semilogarithmic chart

graphs in which one axis is scaled porportionally

9

standard celeration chart

provides a standarized means of charting and analyzing how frequency of BX changes over time

10

scatter plot

a graphic display that shows the relative distribution of individual measures in a data set

11

variablility

how often and the extent to which multiple measures of BX yield different outcomes

12

level

the value on the vertical axis scale around which a set of behavioral measures converge

13

trend

overall direction taken by a data path

14

split-middle line of progress

a method of calculating a drawing lines of progress that is more reliable than the freehand method adn much less time consuming

15

data path

represents the level and trend of BX between successive data points

16

line graph

most common graph format for displaying data in ABA

17

visual analysis

a system approach for interpreting the results of behavioral/research and treatment programs

visual inspection of graphed data for variability, level and trend
