Single-subject research designs have been used to build evidence to the effective treatment of problems across various disciplines including social work, psychology, psychiatry, medicine, allied health fields, juvenile justice, and special education. This book serves as a guide for those desiring to conduct single-subject data analysis. The aim of this text is to introduce readers to the various functions available in SSD for R, a new, free, and innovative software package written in R-the open-source statistical programming language, written by the book's authors, Charles Auerbach and Wendy Zeitlin. SSD for R has numerous graphing and charting functions to conduct robust visual analysis. Besides the ability to create simple line graphs, additional features are available to add mean, median and standard deviation lines across phases to help better visualize change over time. This book also contains numerous tests of statistical significance, such as t-tests, chi-squares and the conservative dual criteria. Auerbach and Zeitlin guide readers through the analytical process based on the characteristics of their data. Several examples and illustrations are provided throughout to help readers understand the wide range of functions available in SSD for R and their application to data analysis and interpretation. SSD for R is the only book of its kind to describe single-subject data analysis while providing free statistical software to do so. Additionally, the authors have an active website (http://ssdanalysis.com) with a growing number of instructional videos and a blog to build a community of researchers interested in single-subject designs.

In this anticipated new edition of Single Case Research Methodology, David L. Gast and Jennifer R. Ledford detail why and how to apply standard principles of single case research methodology to one’s own research or professional project. Using numerous and varied examples, they demonstrate how single case research can be used for research in behavioral and school psychology, special education, speech and communication sciences, language and literacy, occupational therapy, and social work. This thoroughly updated new edition features two entirely new chapters on measurement systems and controversial issues in single subject research, in addition to sample data sheets, graphic displays, and detailed guidelines for conducting visual analysis of graphic data. This book will be an important resource to student researchers, practitioners, and university faculty who are interested in answering applied research questions and objectively evaluating educational and clinical practices.

The field of classroom management is not a neatly organized line of inquiry, but rather consists of many disparate topics and orientations that draw from multiple disciplines. Given the complex nature of the field, this comprehensive second edition of the Handbook of Classroom Management is an invaluable resource for those interested in understanding it. This volume provides up-to-date summaries of research on the essential topics from the first edition, as well as fresh perspectives and chapters on new topics. It is the perfect tool for both graduate students and practitioners interested in a field that is fascinating but not immediately accessible without the proper guidance.

"Randomization tests are not a new idea, but they only became really useful after the advent of fast computing. Making randomization tests accessible to many more potential users by providing the means to use them within familiar statistical software, this book serves as an introduction and provides macros to perform in the familiar environments of SPSS and Excel. Though we expect that the book will still appeal to researchers, we believe the changes in the new edition will make the book an essential aidfor graduate and senior undergraduate courses in statistics, data analysis, and/or research methods, taught in departments of psychology (especially clinical or counseling psychology), medicine, nursing, and other health and social sciences"--

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.

Originally published in 1992, the editors of this volume fulfill three main goals: to take stock of progress in the development of data-analysis procedures for single-subject research; to clearly explain errors of application and consider them within the context of new theoretical and empirical information of the time; and to closely examine new developments in the analysis of data from single-subject or small n experiments. To meet these goals, this book provides examples of applicable single-subject research data analysis. It presents a wide variety of topics and perspectives and hopes that readers will select the data-analysis strategies that best reflect their methodological approaches, statistical sophistication, and philosophical beliefs. These strategies include visual analysis, nonparametric tests, time-series experiments, applications of statistical procedures for multiple behaviors, applications of meta-analysis in single-subject research, and discussions of issues related to the application and misapplication of selected techniques.

Compilations of research on teacher preparation often include no more than a cursory mention of the specific roles and needs of special education teachers. Although the work that special education teachers perform does indeed differ from the work of classroom teachers, teacher preparation in the two fields has much in common. The purpose of this seven-part handbook is to expand our knowledge of teacher education broadly by providing an in-depth look at the most up-to-date research on special education teacher preparation. Opening chapters ground the collection in political and economic context, while subsequent sections delve deeply into issues related to the current state of our special education workforce and offer insights into how to best prepare and sustain that workforce. Ultimately, by illuminating the particularities of special education teacher preparation, this landmark handbook addresses the state of current research in the field and sets an agenda for future scholarship.
