Brief Experimental Analyses of Academic Performance: Introduction to the Special Series
McComas, Jennifer J.; Burns, Matthew K.
Journal of Behavioral Education, v18 n1 p1-4 Mar 2009
Academic skills are frequent concerns in K-12 schools that could benefit from the application of applied behavior analysis (ABA). Brief experimental analysis (BEA) of academic performance is perhaps the most promising approach to apply ABA to student learning. Although research has consistently demonstrated the effectiveness of academic interventions developed from BEA data, research on BEA is in its infancy. The current article suggests that BEA is consistent with the principles of ABA described by Baer et al. (J Appl Behav Anal 37:111-114, 1968) and describes the special series. The special series includes five studies and one commentary that further the evolution of BEA research.
