The Unit 7 will focus on single-subject designs and how these designs can be used for the implementation of function-based behavior intervention plans (BIPs). These designs allow the behavior analyst to identify functional relations between the interventions and target behaviors and make determinations as to the effectiveness of interventions. The importance of visual analysis of data through the transfer of data to graphic displays will be discussed and an overview of the Behavior Analyst Certification Boardâ€™s (BACBâ€™s) professional and ethical standards will be presented. Make every effort to complete the reading beforehand so you are able to discuss the following:
- Explain the purposes of single-subject designs.
- Describe five types of single-subject designs.
- Define level, trend, and variability and explain how these approaches to understanding data can be used to analyze the effectiveness of the BIP.
- Point out the BACB ethical standards that should be considered when selecting an appropriate single-subject design for use in a BIP.
