A Response to Stewart, McElwee, and Ming
Martin, Garry L.; Yu, C. T.
Behavior Analyst, v33 n2 p231-233 Fall 2010
In a recent article published in "The Behavior Analyst," Stewart, McElwee, and Ming (2010) suggested that "scientific experts in scientific contexts" should use more "technically accurate and precise labeling" when describing the Assessment of Basic Learning Abilities (ABLA) in published articles. They concluded by stating, "We believe that increasing the accuracy and precision of the labels used to describe this or analogous protocols can improve their potential by increasing their predictive and explanatory power in practical and research applications as well as by facilitating their further development." In this article, the authors briefly summarize the ABLA and the main thrust of the suggestions by Stewart et al. and also present their reactions to the suggestions of Stewart et al.
