After selecting your case study, you will:
Identify the target behavior in your case study.
Define the target behavior in your case study. Your definition must be objective, clear, and discriminative so
your instructor can understand what is and is not an example of the target behavior. Well-written target
behavior definitions are necessary to accurately and reliably measure behavior and to aggregate, compare,
and interpret data. Well-written definitions are also necessary to guide ongoing program decisions, apply
interventions consistently and accurately, and provide accountability.
Explain the social significance of the target behavior.
Define the outcome criteria for changing the behavior in the case study. Outcome criteria should reflect the
goal for completion of the intervention. The outcome criteria should be specified before any intervention
efforts begin. ,
