design associated with each scenario. (2 pts each)
7A preschool teacher wanted to assess the effectiveness of a clip-chart system on reducing several negative behaviors in the classroom. First, the teacher only "clipped down" for negative physical behaviors. Then, the teacher began clipping down for negative verbal behaviors as well. Finally, she began clipping down for negative attitudes as well.
8A preschool teacher wanted to assess whether a clip-chart system was effective at reducing negative behaviors. She first recorded total number of negative behaviors, then introduced the clip chart and recorded the total number of negative behaviors. Then, she quit using the clip chart and recorded the total number of negative behaviors a third time.

In order to examine the extent to which early mathematical competence may be associated with subsequent mathematical skill at school entry in kindergarten and later in third and fourth grades, researchers documented preschoolers' abilities and then measured those same children's mathematical abilities in kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades.
