Visual Analysis of Single-Case Time Series: Effects of Variability, Serial Dependence, and Magnitude of Intervention Effects.
Matyas, Thomas A.; Greenwood, Kenneth M.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v23 n3 p341-51 Fall 1990
Visual analysis is examined as the dominant analytical method for single-case time series, in a study with 37 postgraduate research students which varied serial dependence, amount of random variability, and effect size. False alarm rates were high, but miss rates were low, indicating that visual analysts are not conservative judges, and serial dependence influences judgment. (Author/DB)
