1

cumulative frequency graph

a graph in which each data point indicates the total number of times he behavior has occurred up to that point

2

alternating treatments designs

a single case experimental design in which two or more interventions alternate systematically

3

continuous recording

recording each and every occurrence of a behavior during a prescribed period

4

interval recording

recording whether a behavior occurs during each of a series of short intervals within an observation period

5

simple frequency graph

a graph in which each data point indicates the number of times a behavior occured at a particular time

6

target behavior

the behavior to be changed by an intervention

7

behavioral assessment

the attempt to (1) define the target behavior;(2) identify functional relations between the target behavior and its antecedents and consequences; (3) identify an effective intervention for changing the target behavior

8

functional analysis

the process of testing hypotheses about the functional relations among antecedents, target behavior and consequences

9

ABAB reversal design

a single case design in which baseline and intervention conditions are repeated with the same person

10

baseline

a period during which the behavior under study is recorded, but no attempt is made to modify it

11

multiple baseline design

a single case design in which the effects of an intervention are recorded across situations, behaviors, or individuals

12

single casse experimental design

a research design in which the behavior of an individual is compared under experimental and control condition
