Observer Accuracy with Continuous Recording.
Domain: Applied Research
OLIVER C. MUDFORD (University of Auckland), Neil T. Martin (The Treehouse Trust)
Abstract: A majority of research articles in the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis concerning free operant human behaviour present data obtained by continuous recording from observers using portable or handheld computers. There is a paucity of research on observer accuracy with this type of behavioral recording. Our paper presents data from observations of functional analysis sessions. Observer performance was compared with criterion records to assess accuracy. A variety of methods for computing accuracy will be compared.
The Games We Play.
Domain: Applied Research

Abstract: Interactive teaching methods are widely acclaimed as the most effective. This presentation compares a number of teaching activities used in a low level learning class at a two-year college, and examines variables that are affecting the success of such activities. Team games, group activities, competitions, and the use of student response devices (clickers) for instant feedback quizzes and other activities are examined.
