1

Assess reinforcer effectiveness as the
response requirement increases.

Progressive Ration (PR) Schedule

2

Duration-based assessment designed to
determine the extent to which stimuli
displace problem behavior

Competing Stimulus Assessment

3

All stimuli available for entire session
Free to interact with as many or as few
stimuli as they want
No stimuli are removed during the
assessment

Free-Operant Procedure

4

Stimuli presented in pairs

Paired Stimulus

5

All stimuli presented on 1st trial, selected
stimuli removed on subsequent trials

Multiple Stimulus without Replacement

6

All stimuli presented on every trial

Multiple Stimulus with Replacement

7

Two identical tasks are available
No programmed consequences for
completing either task
Increase in task completion from BL to Sr
phase, stimulus = reinforcer

Concurrent Operant Assessment

8

One task is available during all phases.
No programmed consequences for task
completion.
During reinforcement phase (B), contingent
on task completion (typically on an FR1), the
stimulus is delivered.

Single Operant

9

Conducted following a preference
assessment to determine if the stimulus is a
reinforcer

Reinforcer Assessment

10

Systematic preference assessment

Reinforcer Sampling

11

Observation of daily activities

Naturalistic direct observation

12

Interview or questionnaire

Indirect (informant-based)

13

Indirect (informant-based)
Naturalistic, direct observation
Reinforcer sampling (empirical)

3 general ways to conduct preference assessments

14

Methods for identifying an individual’s
preferences for tangible items or activities.

Preference Assessments (PA)

15

Review notes/recording(s)
Summarize the findings:
Describe behavior
Identify environmental factors
Identify potential functions
Identify functionally equivalent behavior
Decide whether to continue behavioral
assessment

After an Interview

16

Identify, define, and describe:
The behaviors
Potential ecological events
Events that predict occurrence of behaviors
Potential function of behaviors
Efficiency of behaviors
Functionally equivalent alternative behaviors
Communication methods
Potential reinforcers
History of target behavior and treatment(s)

Functional Assessment Interview Goal

17

Ask open-ended questions
Ask follow-up questions
Acknowledge responses
Write notes or use recorder

During an Interview

18

Build rapport
Informally observe:
Behavior
Environment
Appearance of persons

Beginning of Interview

19

Select instrument
Decide who to interview
Decide where and when
Make an appointment

Prior to Interview

20

Consist of questions to ask within pre-
selected topics

Behavioral Interviews

21

Information regarding:
current and past behavioral repertoire
environmental factors
medical history

Records Review

22

Narrative Recording
ABC Data Collection
Measuring Dimensional and Dimensionless
Quantities of Behavior
Scatterplots
Observation of Permanent Products

Direct Assessment Methods

23

Record Review
Interview
Paper-and-Pencil Questionnaires

Indirect Assessment Methods

24

Preliminary indirect assessment
Direct descriptive assessment
Functional analysis (systematic
manipulations)

Components of a Functional Assessment

25

A systematic gathering of information in order
to make data-based decisions, regarding
behavior and the environment.

Behavioral Assessment
