Evaluation of an Efficient Method for Training Staff to Implement Stimulus Preference Assessments
Roscoe, Eileen M.; Fisher, Wayne W.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v41 n2 p249-254 Sum 2008
We used a brief training procedure that incorporated feedback and role-play practice to train staff members to conduct stimulus preference assessments, and we used group-comparison methods to evaluate the effects of training. Staff members were trained to implement the multiple-stimulus-without-replacement assessment in a single session and the paired-stimulus method in another single session. In all 16 cases (2 assessments for 8 trainees), correct responding increased to over 80% accuracy; in 14 of those 16 cases, it increased to over 90% accuracy. Thus, training produced mastery-level performance in a single training session in almost all cases. (Contains 1 figure.)
