Explain the process of measurement you will use to track the progress of your case study
MEASUREMENT, DATA DISPLAY, AND DATA-BASED DECISIONS
The measurement system is a very important aspect of an intervention plan. Data from the measurement system tell us if our plan is working! The type of measurement system you select should be carefully considered to avoid over- or underreported behavior or a system that does not tell you what you need to know. The feasibility of the measurement system must be carefully considered as well, or you may end up with no data at all.
Use the following headings formatted in current APA style to organize your assignment:
Measurement: Explain the process of measurement you will use to track the progress of your case study.
In your explanation, take into consideration environmental variables, available resources, and behavior of interest relevant to your case study. Remember, applied behavior analysts measure behavior to answer questions about the existence and nature of functional relations between socially significant behavior and environmental variables.
Data Display: Select an appropriate form of visual display of behavioral data (choose from line graphs, bar graphs, cumulative records, semilogarithmic charts, or scatterplots) from which valid and reliable decisions are best analyzed in your case study.
The visual format you select should depend on the type of raw data you collect from your case study and the primary purpose of its evaluation.
Please be sure your graph includes baseline as well as intervention data.
Data-Based Decisions: Justify how the selected form of data display will best allow you to make data-based decisions for your case study.
Remember, the primary function of graphic displays of behavioral data is to communicate quantitative relations. Take into consideration validity, accuracy, and reliability of data based on data and scientifically established best practices.
Written communication: Should be free of errors that detract from the overall message.
APA formatting: References and citations are formatted according to current APA style guidelines. Refer to Evidence and APA as needed.
Resources: 3–5 scholarly or professional resources.
Length: 5–6 double-spaced content pages plus title page and references list.
Font and font size: Times New Roman, 12 points.
SafeAssign: You are required to use SafeAssign before submitting the completed assignment to your instructor. Submit your work to SafeAssign as a draft, review the results, and make any needed changes. When you are ready, submit your assignment to the assignment area for grading.
