1

The treatment phase is divided into subphases.
Each subphase involves a different
behavioral criterion (i.e., a different value of
the IV).
Criterion in each subphase more closely
resembles the terminal behavioral goal.

Changing Criterion Design

2

Implement bi-directional changes to bolster
demonstration of experimental control
Changing criteria to a previous subphase
value and observing that behavior reverts to
that criterion

Bi-directional Change

3

Systematically withdrawing treatment
components to see if behavior change is
maintained.

Component Analysis/Sequential WIthdrawal

4

The systematic examination of the effects of
a range of values of the IV

Parametric Anaysis

5

Evaluate whether treatment effects are
evident before treatment occurs

Probes

6

Events not related to the IV that may affect
the dependent variable.

Extraneous Variable

7

An uncontrolled factor known or suspected to
exert influence on the DV

Confound

8

The effects on a person’s behavior in one
condition can be influenced by the subject’s
experience in a prior condition

Sequence Effects

9

Concluding that the independent variable
has produced a change in the dependent
variable when in fact the relation does not
exist.

Type I Error

10

Concluding that the independent variable
has not produced a change in the dependent
variable when in fact it has.

Type II Error

11

The independent variables are implemented
as dictated by the research or treatment
plan.

Procedural Integrity

12

Examination of the acceptability or viability of
a programmed intervention

Social Validity
