- Be able to determine the appropriate measurement procedures to use.
- Know how and when to uses measures such as percent of occurrence and interval recording methods.
- Be able to state some of the advantages and disadvantages of using continuous measurement procedures and sampling techniques (e.g., partial- and whole-interval recording, momentary time sampling).
- Based on the information provided on the problem behavior below, choose the most appropriate dimension(s) of behavior you would record if you were collecting continuous data and the most appropriate sampling techniques (e.g. partial- and whole-interval recording, momentary time sampling) if you were using discontinuous methods.
Explain why you think the continuous and discontinuous methods you chose were the most appropriate. Problem behavior: Randy makes loud vomiting sounds (“hhhhuh” sound or grunt) that disrupt the learning of others and seem like they could eventually cause him harm as he forces a lot of air into his chest right before he makes the sound.
- List and describe some of the advantages and disadvantages of using continuous measurement procedures and sampling techniques (e.g. partial- and whole-interval recording, momentary time sampling).
