A Comparison of Two Approaches to Training Visual Analysis of AB Graphs
Wolfe, Katie; Slocum, Timothy A.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v48 n2 p472-477 Sum 2015
Visual analysis is the primary method of evaluating data in single-subject research. Few studies have evaluated interventions to teach visual analysis skills. The purpose of this study was to evaluate systematic instruction, delivered using computer-based intervention or a recorded lecture, on identifying changes in slope and level in AB graphs. Results indicated that both approaches were significantly more effective than a no-treatment control condition but were not different from each other. We discuss the implications of these results for training and directions for future research.
