Goals of Interventions

2

reinforcing or punishing, shaping or stopping

3

_______ is defining a concept not the basis of the operations used for assessment.

Operational

4

_______ is important because it allows advances, replication of findings, and knowledge-building.

Operational Definition

5

_______ offers specific needed behaviors for assessing and intervening, while task analysis helps to identify specific needed behaviors and the sequence.

Direct Obervations

6

Frequency measures, discrete categorization, interval recording, duration, latency, intensity, number of people who perform the behavior, and other strategies are all part of________.

the 8 core strategies of assessment

7

___________ counts occurrence.

Frequency Measures

8

__________ is a list of responses scored as responding or not.

Discrete Categorization

9

__________ is a block of time delineated for observations.

Interval recording

10

_______ is the length of response.

Durations

11

______ is the force of response.

Intensity

12

________ is specific measures such as calories for dieting, biometric measures, self and other reports.

Other strategies for assessment

13

_________ is a way of establishing reliability.

Inter-observer agreement.

14

_______ argument about the role of reports is that ______ may be the only accessible method of assessment and can compliment other measures. It is also good for determining how a client feels about the treatment and about themselves. Other reports offer different perspectives and often initially spot an issue.

Karzdin's, Self reports

15

Number of time daily/weekly, length of time observed, when observed, and who observes are practical decisions about ________.

assessing and sampling behavior

16

_________ and ________ is related to behavioral variations and determines effectiveness.

Number of times daily/weekly, length of time observed

17

_________ is determined by deciding which periods the behaviors occur most frequently.

When observed

18

______ is consistency

Who observes

19

What are the two themes Karzdin emphasizes.

Flexibility and Rigor

20

In situations where direct observation would be dangerous and foolish, such as abduction awareness, gun safety, swimming (avoiding drowning), and provides information difficult to obtain in a natural setting is when a _________ should occur instead of a direct observation.

Contrived task

21

What are to themes kazdin emphasized?

Flexibility and Rigor

22

Measurements procedures in which the client or person being observed is aware that his or her behavior is being measured.

obtrusive assessment

23

_____________ agreement is important for consistency, shows biases, and shows if the behavior is well defined.

Interobserver

24

____________ occurs when observed drifts from definition of behavior and can be checked by watching inter-observer agreement

observer drift

25

what percent of agreement level is considered acceptable?

80-100%

26

Impact of intervention, multifaceted issues, multiple perspective, and more information make ______________ more important.

repeated and multiple measures

27

______________ supplement pre/post intervention assessments by adding additional information related to the intervention and gage effectiveness in areas within and without target behavior

periodic probes

28

Continuous assessment, Baseline assessment,Stability of performance, and Variability are the 4 characteristics of _________________

single case design

29

______________ is repeated observations

Continuous assessment

30

_______________ is level of occurrence before intervention

Baseline assessment
