Thanks to remarkable methodological and statistical advances in recent years, Single-Case design (SCD) research has become a viable and often essential option for researchers in applied psychology, education, and related fields. This text is a compendium of information and tools for researchers considering SCD research, a methodology in which one or several participants (or other units) comprise a systematically-controlled experimental intervention study. SCD is a highly flexible method of conducting applied intervention research where it is not feasible or practical to collect data from traditional groups of participants. Initial chapters lay out the key components of SCDs, from articulating dependent variables to documenting methods for achieving experimental control and selecting an appropriate design model. Subsequent chapters show when and how to implement SCDs in a variety of contexts and how to analyze and interpret results. Authors emphasize key design and analysis tactics, such as randomization, to help enhance the internal validity and scientific credibility of individual studies. This rich resource also includes 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 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.

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.

"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"--

It is particularly gratifying to prepare a second edition of a book, because there is the necessary impli cation that the first edition was well received. Moreover, now an opportunity is provided to correct the problems or limitations that existed in the first edition as well as to address recent developments in the field. Thus, we are grateful to our friends, colleagues, and students, as well as to the reviewers who have expressed their approval of the first edition and who have given us valuable input on how the revision could best be structured. Perhaps the first thing that the reader will notice about the second edition is that it is more extensive than the first. The volume currently has 41 chapters, in contrast to the 31 chapters that comprised the earlier version. Chapters 3, 9, 29, and 30 of the first edition either have been dropped or were combined, whereas 14 new chapters have been added. In effect, we are gratified in being able to reflect the continued growth of behavior therapy in the 1980s. Behavior therapists have addressed an ever-increasing number of disorders and behavioral dysfunctions in an increasing range of populations. The most notable advances are taking place in such areas as cognitive approaches, geriatrics, and behavioral medicine, and also in the treatment of childhood disorders.
