Flashcards in Interpreting Data Deck (33):

1

## What are three purposes of graphs?

###
Communicate the data

Assess data correctly

I/D- IV/DV: Shows how IV and DV are realted

2

## What are five types of graphs in ABA?

###
Line

Bar

Scatter plots

Cumulative Record

Scemilograrthighmic- Standard Celeration

3

## Equal Interval Graphs are AKA

### Arithmetic Charts, Add-Subtract charts

4

## What is an equal interval graph?

### The intervals are all equal

5

## What are four types of equal interval graphs?

### scatterplot, line, bar and cumulative record

6

## What are non-equal interval charts?

### Standard Celeration.

7

## Line graphs are AKA

### Frequency Polygons

8

## What are the most common graphs in ABA?

### Line graphs

9

## When should you use a line graph?

### When you want the data to effectivley communicate data the is scaled along some dimension

10

## What are the seven parts of a line graph?

###
Horizontal axis

Vertical axis

Condition change lines

Condition labels

Data points

Data path

Figure Caption

11

## When are times that data points should NOT be connected?

### When there has been a break in time, but no data collected. Across phase change lines, Follow up, post check data.

12

## Bar graphs are AKA

### Histograms

13

## What is a Cartesian Plane?

### 2- dimensional area formed by 2 perpendicular lines that intersect

14

## When do you use bar graphs?

### When you want to represent data that are not related to one another.

15

## What is a downside of bar graphs?

### They do not allow for the analysis of variability and trend . They can also not be used with time

16

## Who developed the Cumulative record?

### BF Skinner, 1957

17

## What is a cumulative record?

###
Keep adding on responses, it never goes down in trend. They are generally used for rate or frequency

18

## What are two types of cumulative Record?

###
1. Overall Response Rate

2. Local Response Rate

19

## What is Overall Response Rate Cumulative Record?

###
An average rate of response over a given time period.

Divide the total number of responses recorded by the number of observation periods.

20

## What is Local Response Rate Cumulative Record?

### Rate of response during a time smaller than than for which an overall response rate has been given.

21

## What is a semilogarithmic graph?

### Graphs in which ONE axis is scaled proportionally

22

## Why would you use standard celebration?

### When you are looking at rate of responding.

23

## What do data points look like in a scatter plot?

### Not connected

24

## How should you display your data, graphically speaking?

### In the most valid way possible. You need to display your data in a way that appropriately represents the behavior and the data.

25

## What are the three fundamental properties of behavior change?

### Level, trend and variability

26

## What is the level of a graph?

###
It is depicted as flat or level line in a graph.

Value on the vertical axis.

27

## What does a change in level mean?

### The datas average value changes

28

## How do you find the level?

### Examine the mean, median and range.

29

## What is the mean level line?

### A horizontal line drawn through the data points on the vertical axis which is the average or mean of the data.

30

## What is the median level line?

###
Horizontal line drawn through the data points on the vertical axis. Calculate the median of the data points.

Better option than mean level line if you have outliers

31

## What is trend?

### The overall direction of the data. It can increase, decrease, zero. It can be gradual or steep. It is a straight line through the middle of the data.

32

## How do you make a trend line?

### Count, divide, mid rate, mid date, quarter and split
