An Evaluation of the Stimulus Equivalence Paradigm to Teach Single-Subject Design to Distance Education Students via Blackboard
Walker, Brooke D.; Rehfeldt, Ruth Anne
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v45 n2 p329-344 Sum 2012
The purpose of the current study was to examine the degree to which instruction based on stimulus equivalence procedures could be used to teach single-subject design methodology to graduate-level professionals through a Web-based course management system known as Blackboard (see Specifically, we used the stimulus equivalence paradigm to teach relations among the names, definitions, graphical representations of the designs, and two practical scenarios of when it would be appropriate to implement each design. Most participants demonstrated the emergence of untaught relations, and some participants showed generalization to novel vignettes and graphs. Relations largely were not maintained at follow-up but were retaught. (Contains 7 figures and 2 tables.)
