EBC 415 - Research Methods in ABA

Two of the defining characteristics of applied behavior analysis (Baer, et al. 1968) require that procedures be effective and analytical. That is, our procedures must achieve socially-significant outcomes, and we must demonstrate that these outcomes were a result of our procedures. This course will expand on the previous coursework in measurement and evaluation. Successful participants will demonstrate mastery to describe how they will use the following advanced experimental designs to evaluate various interventions: (1) Withdrawal and reversal designs (2) Alternating treatments, or multi-element, designs (3) Changing criterion designs (4) Multiple baseline designs. (3 credits)
