Upper Saddle River, NJ: Pearson Education.3.What other designs could have been used to answer the research questions?One design that could have been used is changing criterion design. Cooper, Heron, and Heward (2007), define changing criterion design as “an experimental design in which an initial baseline phase is followed by a series of treatment 2
ARTICLE CRITIQUEphases consisting of successive and gradually changing criteria for reinforcement or punishment. Experimental control is evidenced by the extent the level of responding changes to conform to each new criterion” (p. 692). During baseline, each participant had to complete 10 reps of the exercise in order to move on to theintervention section. Changing criterion would have been a good design to see if the independent variable was really working to complete the steps with increasing criterions up to 80%.
