TYPES OF BEHAVIOUR ASSESSMENT
Direct
Observation & recording of target behaviour in vivo
Most accurate (100% almost)
Indirect
3rd party measuring behaviour
interviews
questionnaires
rating scales
Disadvantages
People could lie
Faulty memory
RECORDING BEHAVIOUR
1) DEFINE THE TARGET BEHAVIOUR
2) IDENTIFY WHO, WHEN, AND WHERE TO RECORD (THE LOGISTICS OF RECORDING)
Requires close proximity → either in person or video recording
Target behaviours are typically recorded by someone else
Observation period → when the target behaviour is most likely to occurr
Consent must be obtained first (either from client or parent)
Can occur in a natural setting OR contrived setting
There are benefits to both
Structured observation vs. Unstructured observation (contrived settings)
3) CHOOSE A RECORDING METHOD
Continuous Recording
Can measure 1 or more of the physical dimensions → frequency, duration, intensity.
Measuring from beginning of behaviour till end
Recording w/o interruption
Latency → time btwn a given stimulus and the onset of a target behaviour
identifying a change in the latency period could indicate whether the treatment was
effective or not.
Percentage of Opportunites
Occurrence of a behaviour is recorded in relation to some other event (e.g. Response
opportunity)
