_______ is defining a concept not the basis of the operations used for assessment.
_______ is important because it allows advances, replication of findings, and knowledge-building.
_______ offers specific needed behaviors for assessing and intervening, while task analysis helps to identify specific needed behaviors and the sequence.
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
___________ counts occurrence.
__________ is a list of responses scored as responding or not.
__________ is a block of time delineated for observations.
_______ is the length of response.
______ is the force of response.
________ is specific measures such as calories for dieting, biometric measures, self and other reports.
Other strategies for assessment
_________ is a way of establishing reliability.
_______ argument about the role of reports is that ______ may be the only accessible method of assessment and can compliment other measures.

Karzdin's, Self reports
Number of time daily/weekly, length of time observed, when observed, and who observes are practical decisions about ________.
assessing and sampling behavior
_________ and ________ is related to behavioral variations and determines effectiveness.
Number of times daily/weekly, length of time observed
_________ is determined by deciding which periods the behaviors occur most frequently.
______ is consistency
What are the two themes Karzdin emphasizes.
Flexibility and Rigor
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.
What are to themes kazdin emphasized?
Flexibility and Rigor
Measurements procedures in which the client or person being observed is aware that his or her behavior is being measured.
_____________ agreement is important for consistency, shows biases, and shows if the behavior is well defined.
____________ occurs when observed drifts from definition of behavior and can be checked by watching inter-observer agreement
what percent of agreement level is considered acceptable?
Impact of intervention, multifaceted issues, multiple perspective, and more information make ______________ more important.
repeated and multiple measures
______________ supplement pre/post intervention assessments by adding additional information related to the intervention and gage effectiveness in areas within and without target behavior
Continuous assessment, Baseline assessment,Stability of performance, and Variability are the 4 characteristics of _________________
single case design
