Experimental analysis

 

This is going to be an Alternating Treatment Design as I will be comparing the effect of Task Analysis and Modelling in teaching two independent living

skills (setting table for two and bed making) PLEASE READ THIS DESIGN PROPERLY TO BE ABLE TO IMPLEMENT IT WELL IN THIS WORK!
There is only one participant, an 8-year-old boy with autism. Two teaching methods were tried at different days and observed by two observers. One

preferred reinforcement was used across all conditions. The correct responses during each teaching procedure was recorded in counts. An IOA calculation

will be done to ensure competency and believability of data and the intervention effect. The data collected during the trial of the two teaching procedures

will be graphed and analysed separately. The
outcome of the analysis will then suggest which teaching procedure will be effective in my future intervention.

Assignment
Introduce the behaviour (self-help or independent living skill), while introducing the behaviour it should be defined.
Explain why it is useful or important to find out what controls it.
Consider a scientific literature appropriate to the behaviour of interest and explain if and how that literature was helpful in suggesting the present

experimental analysis. All the findings from published research should be clearly described. This section should also speculate what the experimental

analysis might yield.

he design and conduct of the experimental analysis should be clearly described. All the appropriate sub-headings to this experimental analysis should be

covered in detail.

An IOA calculation should be done using the attached data of the two observers. All the summary statistics presented well and explained. Line graph with

markers should be used in making the graphs, the graphs should not have any background shade or coloured makers strictly black you can use different

marks but not coloured. The figures and tables accompanied by text should explain trends in data. All findings should be clearly summarised. All the graphs

should be correctly labelled.

Then carefully and patiently evaluate and interpret the implications of the results of the experimental analysis. It should explain how these results in

conjunction with the earlier assessment, can be used to inform the development of an intervention to strengthen the behaviour of interest. Refer to the

published research used in the introduction and report similarities/differences between findings.
