ABA 664 - Implementing Behavior Analytic Research

3 Credit(s)

This course is a part 2 of a 2-course sequence that results in the completion and write-up of a single-subject behavior analytic research project. This section uses a behavior analytic approach to single subject research design, expanding upon ABA 663- Designing Behavior Analytic Research that is a prerequisite to this course. In this second course of this 2-course sequence students will implement the study they developed in course 1 with a research participant. Students will coordinate the implementation of experimental procedures with treatment fidelity, train staff to assist in data collection, ensure reliable data collection, display and interpret data, and if needed, modify the research design. The final assignment will be to write the results and discussion sections for the study, and then to present the results in a poster format suitable tor submission to a professional conference. Students will learn to apply APA standards in writing and use of technologies to support research, including online library resources and reference management software.
