Precision Teaching: The Standard Celeration Charts
Calkin, Abigail B.
Behavior Analyst Today, v6 n4 p207-215 2005
Combining Pavlov's (1960/1927) use of frequency as a standard unit in the measurement of scientific phenomena and Skinner's (1938) use of frequency, free operant behavior, and the cumulative recorder with his knowledge of engineering and interest in navigation, Lindsley brought to psychology and education the most powerful and scientific use of measurement applied to human behavior. In 1965, he developed what was first called the Standard Behavior Chart, now more accurately described as a family of Standard Celeration Charts--standard measurement charts for human behavior in daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly time periods. This paper provides an overview of these four types of Standard Celeration Charts.
