1 VISUAL ANALYSIS Katlyn Armendariz SPCE 630 806 Ball State University March 29, 2020 Learning Activity 12: Visual Analysis
2 VISUAL ANALYSIS 1. Review each of the graphs for equal and appropriate scaling of axes and to identify data series, conditions, representation of time, and unit of analysis (e.g., participant, behavior, context). Explain your findings. (2 points)
2. Examine research questions for the predicted pattern(s) of change in dependent variables. Explain your findings. (2 points)
3. Review the number of data points per condition. Evaluation data stability within condition and determine if there is an adequate amount of data to establish a predictable pattern in each condition for each participant. (2 points) a. If yes, proceed to step 4. Explain your findings.
3 VISUAL ANALYSIS b. If no due to high variability in a baseline condition that is hypothesized to stabilize with the introduction of the independent variable, proceed to Step 4. Explain your findings. c. If no because variability precludes identifying a predictable pattern of behavior within more than one condition, or precludes evaluation of behavior change across adjacent conditions, discontinue visual analysis, and explain why experimental control cannot be established. -Pedro: There is sufficient amount of data points in each phase, which allows confidence in our ability to determine stability, or lack there of. In the initial baseline phase, there is strong variability, which may lead to thinking that there would less likelihood of stability in other phases, but once treatment was introduced, data became stable.
