Flashcards in Treatment Integrity Deck (16):
We must take IOA data to determine the reliability of our measures of the ____ ____
In addition to assessing agreement re: D.V.s, we also need to assess the reliability of ____ ____
If an I.V. doesn't affect the D.V. in the expected way, it could be because:
1) The I.V. Wasn't effective
2) The I.V. wasn't implemented correctly
If the I.V. wasn't implemented correctly, there is a problem with ____ ____
The degree to which the I.V. was implemented as planned
Treatment integrity is also referred to as...
Treatment Integrity (TI) is usually determined by
Devising some type of measure to demonstrate I.V. was implemented correctly
TI Measurement options: Measures of ____ compared to ____ to implement
E.g. Number of times reinforcement occurred compared to number of times the behaviour occurred
TI Measurement options: Permanent products
Determining whether a behaviour occurred by checking the products of behaviour (e.g. If a student has completed homework, check homework)
TI Measurement options: Checklist of I.V. task analysis
Make a list of each step of the behaviour and check whether implementation of I.V. was consistent throughout each step
In group designs we use ____ to assess the I.V.s effects on the D.V.
In single subject designs we usually use ____ ____ of the data to assess the I.V.s effects on the D.V.
Visual inspection (although stats can also be used)
What does visual inspection involve?
Examining graphed data to determine whether I.V. seemed to change the D.V.
What are the three basic dimension to be inspected on a graph?
1) Magnitude (changes in the level)
2) Trend (changes in direction data are headed)
3) variability (changes in the stability if the data)
What is interobserver agreement (IOR)?
When two people can observe the same behaviour and both record that behaviour happened
