Three Term Analysis: Continuity from Initial Assessment Through Program Revision.
Kaczmarek, Louise A; Glasser, Amy J.
Three term analysis (a format for viewing a student in relation to other people and to the physical environment) is proposed as a way of providing teachers (including those of the handicapped) with a vehicle for viewing all behavior and recording all aspects of the planning process. S. Sapon's behavioral formulations are presented followed by a discussion of how they can be used in various aspects of program planning and implementation. Included in the discussion is the application of three term analysis to observing and recording behavior, specifying objectives, analyzing tasks, designing educational strategies, and evaluating an educational activity. The elements in Sapon's Basic Principle for the Description of Behavior are defined as the environment immediately antecedent to a set of movements (or Setting), what a person does (or Movement), and the environment immediately following the set of movements (or Subsequence). A strategy for teaching a child to draw a straight line is used to illustrate the format. (SBH)
