Multiple baseline design

flexible tactics that enables researchers to analyze the effects of an independent variable across multiple BXs, settings, and/or subjects without withdrawing the treatment variable to verify that the improvements in BX were a result of treatment


Multiple baseline across BX designs

concurrent measurement of 2 or more bXs of a singe participant. After steady baseline, apply treatment to one BX while maintaining baseline for the other BX(s).


Multiple baseline across setting design

a singe BX of a person or group is targeted in 2 or more different settings or conditions
-when maximum BX change has been achieved, more to next condition


Multiple baseline across subjects design

one target BX is selected for 2 or more subjects (or groups) in the same setting


Multiple probe design

a method for analyzing the relation between the independent variable and the acquisition of a successive approximation or task sequence.


delayed multiple baseline design

initial baseline and intervention are begun, and subsequent baselines are added in a staggered or delayed fashion


changing criterion design

initial baseline observations on a single target BX. Baseline phase is followed by implementation of a treatment program in each of a series of treatment phases. Each treatment phase is associated with a step-wise change in criterion rate for the target BX.


Multielement design

refer to alternating treatment design
concurrent schedules design Simultaneous treatment design
