1

Continuous Measurement Procedures

1. Frequency
2. Duration
3. Latency
4. Inter-Response Time

2

Continuous Measurement

Records every possible behavioral occurrence

3

Frequency

Ratio of count per observation time

4

Duration

Total extent of time in which a behavior occurs

5

Latency

Elapsed time from the onset of a stimulus to the initiation of a response

6

IRT

Elapsed time between two successive responses

7

Discontinuous Measurement Procedures

1. Partial Interval Recording
2. Whole Interval Recording
3. Momentary Time Sampling

8

Discontinuous Measurement

Records a sample of behavior during an observation

9

Partial Interval Recording

Observing whether a behavior occurs or does not occur during specified time periods

ex. in 10 second intervals, for a period of 10 minutes, did the client interact with the new toy?

10

Whole Interval Recording

Observing whether a behavior occurs or does not occur throughout the entire specified interval of time

ex. in a period of 10 minutes, did the client engage on task behavior?

11

Momentary Time Sampling

Observing whether a behavior occurs at the very end of a specified interval of time

ex. in a 10 minute observation period, divided into 30 second intervals (20 total observation opportunities) did the Hulk engage in aggressive behavior?

12

How to prep for data collection

-read data from last session
-prepare materials and programs for current session
-determine what programs you plan to work on during the session
-gather materials
-set up the first set of programs so they are ready

13

Percent of Occurrence

80-90% accuracy determines acquisition

14

Trials to Criterion

number of consecutive opportunities to respond required to achieve a performance standard

15

Discrete Categorization

classifying responses into discrete categories (severity, duration, independence/prompting codes)

16

Permanent Product Recording Procedures

measuring behavior after it has occurred by measuring tangible items or the effects a behavior has on the environment

17

Why do we collect data?

-to track client progress
-to engage in data based decision making

18

Why do we need graphs?

-to determine client progress
-to be included in regular written reports to our funding providers
