SPCE 630 Final Exam Study Guide 1. Threats to internal validity include:
2. Match the definition to the correct term . Events that occur during the experiment but that are not related to planned procedural changes that may influence the outcome=History Changes in behavior due to the passage of time=Maturation Occurs when participants need to respond to the same test repeatedly during a baseline or probe condition, which influences responding= testing Threats related to the measurement system, and are of concern because of repeated measurement by human observers who may make errors=Data instability Inconsistent implementation of the experimental condition= procedural infidelity The loss of participants during a study, which limits the generality of findings=attrition Occurs when a participant’s behavior is influenced by mor4e than one planned intervention during the course of a study=Multiple treatment interference A type of data instability that refers to a repeated and predictable pattern in the data series over time= Cyclical variability 3. Carryover effects:
4. The hypothesis that states that there is no significant difference between samples is:
5. Amanda is an RBT at an ABA clinic. She is working with her client, Jerrell, to decrease aggressive behaviors (i.e., biting others). She has collected data for the frequency of Jerrell’s bites for three weeks. Calculate the mean, median, and mode of the following data set (round up to the nearest whole number): Week 1: 12, 11, 10, 22, 22, Week 2: 7, 8, 13, 21, 17, Week 3: 16, 7, 9, 3, 0
6. Dr. Jones wanted to know if the use of the Good Behavior Game decreased rates of disruptive behaviors in an elementary school. Dr. Jones collected data throughout the duration of the school year across two elementary schools. In school A, all k-6 classrooms used the Good Behavior Game. In School B, no classrooms used the Good Behavior Game. At the end of the school year, Dr. Jones concluded that the Good Behavior Game had no impact on student disruptive behavior, when in fact it had. This is an example of:
7. The primary purpose of the method section is to :
8. Which of the following is true about single-case research design?
9. Inter-subject replication with a multiple baseline design across behaviors
10. These data show which of the following:
11. Which of the following is a limitation of using statistical significance to differentiate between meaningful and trivial change? The rejection of the null hypothesis is more decisive in the larger sample sizes Large enough sample sizes will show a significant different between populations Statistical analysis may fail to reject the null hypothesis in small sample sizes
12. Which of the following is a limitation of group design?
