Single Case Research Design


3.0 Credit, 3 Lecture, 0 Lab


The purpose of this course is to help professionals and researchers acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to conduct single-case experimental research in the behavioral sciences and in education. Concepts and practices integral to data based decision-making and action research will be addressed.


The goal of this course is to provide students with the knowledge and skills required to conduct applied behavior analytic research and classroom-based research; and to be educated consumers of research. The scientist-practitioner is an important type of professional. Action research and data-based decision making are still relatively new in applied, but single case research can provide the new methodology. There is a need for empirical verification of instruction and other practices.
