Thanks to remarkable advances in recent years, single-case design (SCD) reseach has become a viableùand often essentialùoption for researchers across a variety of settings. SCD is a highly flexible method of conducting applied intervention research, in which the subject of an experimentally controlled intervention is a single group or individual. This methodology is especially useful when it is not feasible or practice to collect data from multiple groups of participants, as is often the case in applied psychology, education, and related fields. This text presents a wealth of information and tools for researchers considering SCD including in-depth descriptions of large-scale SCD research projects being undertaken at key institutions; practical suggestions from journal editors on how to get SCD research published; and detailed instructions for free, user-friendly, web-based randomization software.

Single Subject Research Methodology in Behavioral Sciences

View: 2680

This book is written for student researchers, practitioners, and university faculty who are interested in answering applied research questions and objectively evaluating educational and clinical practices. The basic tenet of single-subject research methodology is that the individual is of primary importance and that each individual study participant serves as his or her own control. It is because of this focus on the individual that clinicians and educators have been using single-subject research designs for over 40 years to answer applied research questions. Although the methodology has its roots in behavioral psychology and applied behavioral analysis, it has been used by applied researchers across a variety of disciplines such as special education, speech and communication sciences, language and literacy, therapeutic recreation, occupational therapy, and social work. Key features include the following: Applied Focus – More than any other text, this one focuses on the nuts and bolts of how to use single-subject research in constructing one’s research project or in evaluating one’s professional practice. Numerous and Varied Examples – The book abounds in examples from special education and other disciplines and populations within the applied research literature. Reader Friendly – The text is written in a reader friendly style, features sample data sheets and graphic displays, and includes detailed guidelines for conducting visual analysis of graphic data. Expertise – The author’s long and distinguished career in teaching single-subject research is augmented in this book by contributions from other experts in the field.

Single-case Research Designs

Methods for Clinical and Applied Settings

Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA

Category: Psychology

Page: 452

View: 8449

Kazdin's text is a notable contrast to the quantitative methodology approach that pervades the biological and social sciences. The methodology in Single-Case Reasearch Designs focuses on a widely applicable methodology for evaluating interventions, such as treatment, or psychotherapy, using applied behavior anlaysis. However, this revision aims to encompass a broader range of research areas that utilize single-case designs. The text will convey the pertinence of this research methodology to disciplines ranging from psychology and medicine to business and industry. The first edition of this book, which was published in 1982, still sells a steady amount of copies today. The fact that professors continue to use the first edition of this book more than twenty years after it was published is a testament to the quality of information, organization, and narrative throughout the text. The possibility of a revision has professors excited that they can expose their students toa well-written, clear, and updated text that will reflect the current status of single-case research.

Design Research on Learning and Thinking in Educational Settings

Enhancing Intellectual Growth and Functioning

The key question this book addresses is how to identify and create optimal conditions for the kind of learning and development that is especially important for effectively functioning in the 21st century. Taking a new approach to this long-debated issue, it looks at how a design research-based science of learning (with its practical models and related design research) can provide insights and integrated models of how human beings actually function and grow in the social dynamics of educational settings with all their affordances and constraints. More specifically: How can specific domains or subject matters be taught for broad intellectual development? How can technology be integrated in enhancing human functioning? How can the social organization of classroom learning be optimized to create social norms for promoting deep intellectual engagement and personal growth? Part I is concerned with broad conceptual and technical issues regarding cultivating intellectual potential, with a focus on how design research might fill in an important a niche in addressing these issues. Part II presents specific design work in terms of design principles, models, and prototypes.

In the past several years, models of multi-tiered service delivery have emerged as a framework for supporting the needs of school-aged children in schools across the country and have received much attention in scholarly publications of education and related fields. Despite the needs of young children and the promise of early intervention, however, models of multi-tiered service delivery are only in the beginning stages of development in early childhood education settings such as preschools. This text provides early-childhood professionals with an introduction to tiered service delivery and practical considerations in the implementation of a multi-tier system of supports with particular emphasis on early childhood law and ethics, assessment and intervention, developmental disabilities, and family engagement.

Evaluate the effects of your interventions! Single-Subject Designs for School Psychologists shows how practitioners—educators, counselors, and support personnel—can contribute to the research base in their field by using single-subject methodologies to empirically validate the effects of their interventions. This book provides the research tools to tackle real world problems such as reducing transition times; improving reading, mathematics, and writing performance; increasing on-task behavior; and enhancing public speaking skills by presenting examples and analysis of single-subject design research methods. Specific methodologies include empirical case studies, withdrawal designs, multiple-probe designs, and nonconcurrent multiple-baseline designs. This book is a useful supplement for research-design classes being offered to education professionals. This text provides real world examples that demonstrate how practitioners who work with individual students or entire classes can conduct important intervention research—while at the same time educating. The applied interventions are designed to alter a variety of different unfavorable behaviors while reducing students’ and educators’ fear of research. This extensively referenced source includes helpful charts and tables to clearly illustrate research data. Single-Subject Designs for School Psychologists discusses: intervention evaluation and validation procedures the Timely Transitions Game—combining explicit timing with an interdependent group contingency program to decrease transition times enhancing class-wide reading performance by using interdependent group contingencies with randomly selected criteria and paired reading a self-modeling intervention for high school students with public speaking anxiety delayed praise as a directive and its effectiveness on on-task behavior decreasing transition times in a second grade classroom a description and demonstration of the nonconcurrent multiple-baseline design using a low-tech self-managed time-delay intervention to increase division fact fluency Single-Subject Designs for School Psychologists is a valuable how-to guide for school psychologists, special education teachers, behavioral consultants, school counselors, school social workers, support personnel, general education teachers, or for any helping professional wishing to contribute to the advancement of their field.
