Precision teaching (PT) is an instructional application of behavior analysis. PT utilizes the standard celeration chart to closely monitor and analyze changes in behavior. The use of this dynamic measurement tool, coupled with the principles of behavior, has led to an enhanced understanding of many complex behaviors and their necessary components. Furthermore, PT offers a highly effective and efficient means of teaching these complex behaviors. This panel includes 4 notable behavior analysts who have worked extensively in the area of precision teaching. The panelists will discuss their personal accounts of becoming experts in the area. They will discuss the progress that has been made and limitations that have been encountered in PT. Finally, panelists will answer audience questions and provide recommendations to those interested in working or conducting research in precision teaching.
