Transcript of RBT Module 13

Instructor: Dr. Michael Cameron
Registered Behavior Technician Module: A-03
Demonstration Requirements: At the conclusion of this training,
your BCBA supervisor to describe the discontinuous data collection systems he or she uses,
the discontinuous data collection process, and
your ability to use all discontinuous data collection methods.
The goals of this module are:
Indirect Measure

Partial Interval Recording
Indirect Measure
Record whether the behavior was present or absent at any
time during the observation interval (you are not concerned about the number of times the behavior occurred). Results in an overestimation of a behavior.
Planned Activity Check
A variation of momentary time sampling. Measures behavior of individuals in a group.

Registered Behavior Technician
Module 13

Title: Use discontinuous measures
Duration: 60 Minutes
Assessment: Competency based quiz (5 questions)
1) to define discontinuous measures, 2) to provide a description of partial and whole interval recording, 3) review considerations when using a percentage measure, 4) to review the concepts of
time sampling and trials-to-criterion, and 5) Planned Activity Check
Discontinuous Measure
Discontinuous (indirect) measures are
those that capture only a
sample of behavior during an
Whole Interval
Indirect Measure
The behavior is only recorded if it occurs throughout the entire interval. Results in an underestimation of behavior.
This method is useful for determining how often a behavior occurred given the opportunity (proportion of correct to incorrect responses or proportion of observational intervals when behavior occurred). This is a derivative measure.

Time Sample
Record whether a target behavior is occurring at
the end of a pre-determined interval. Reported as
percentage of intervals in when behavior occurred.
Measure of the number of response opportunities
needed to achieve a predetermined level of performance. Calculated
post facto

True or False. The partial interval recording method requires you to court the frequency of a behavior.
False. The partial interval recording method only requires you to indicate whether a behavior occurred or did not occur. No frequency count of behavior is required.
List the three recording methods you will use as a Registered Behavior Technician.
The three methods of recording include: (1) event recording, (2) timing, and (3) time sampling.
Name a device you will likely use when collecting discontinuous data.
You will be required to use a stop watch during the discontinuous data collection process.
True or False. When using a "percentage" measure, I only have to count the number of times a behavior occurred.
False. The percentage measure is a proportional message and requires you to calculate the number of correct responses by the total number of correct and incorrect responses. Or, the number of times a behavior occurred by the total number of occurrences and non-occurrences.
True or False. Whole interval recording results in an underestimation of a behavior and partial interval recording results in an overestimation of a behavior.
Behavior Intervention Technologies
Quick Review
Behavior Intervention Technologies
Data are collected for data-based decision making and progress verification
You will collect data on programs designed to build skills, knowledge, and abilities and to address behavioral excesses
Special Note on Self Monitoring and Self Management

Self Management is an evidence-based practice

that promotes independence. The practice involves teaching individuals to a) record the occurrence or nonoccurrence of pro-social behavior, b) record the occurrence or nonoccurrence of behavioral excesses, and c) to arrange for access to reinforcement. All of the data collection system described in this module can be used for self monitoring and self management.
