Workshop #W46
CE Offered: PSY/BACB
CANCELED: Elevating Decision Making With the Standard Celeration Chart
Friday, May 26, 2017
8:00 AM–3:00 PM
Hyatt Regency
Area: AUT/EDC; Domain: Service Delivery
CE Instructor: Richard M. Kubina, Ph.D.
Description: Behavior analysts take great care in observing and recording data. After the recording process, data are then placed on a visual display. Line graphs form the main device used to interpret the rigorously collected data. Data deserve the best analytic tool for the analysis, interpretation, data decision making, and communication of data. Such a visual device exists in the Standard Celeration Chart (SCC). The current presentation will begin with facts showing the Standard Celeration Chart is a 10x better tool for handling all aspects of time series visual display when compared to the predominant nonstandard linear graph. The majority of the day will focus on teaching workshop participants how to use the SCC. Participants will learn how to enter data and read data. Furthermore, all of the basic conventions for charting human performance will be covered. Participants will learn how to understand data within (i.e., celeration, bounce, improvement index) and between condition (frequency multiplier, celebration multiplier, bounce change, improvement index change) analyses. Basic decision making involving aim stars, aim bands, and celeration aims will also be presented. The workshop will include teaching important concepts, then having participants practice applying the concepts. Guided feedback and practice will occur throughout all topics.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to: (1) compare different graphical features between nonstandard linear graphs and Standard Celeration Charts; (2) chart frequency data in real time on Standard Celeration Charts; (3) compare the difference between absolute and relative change; (4) compare the difference between celeration and trend; (5) state the advantages of quantifying behavior change features on the SCC; (6) read and state celeration and bounce values.
Activities: Instructional strategies include: lecture, discussion, and guided and independent practice. Workshop objectives will be met through a balanced presentation of lecture, guided practice, video observation, and individual/group participation/discussion. Core content will be taught through lecture and video demonstrations of strategies will be provided. The format combines lecture, small group activities, guided practice, and frequency building exercises.
