These are ways in which an RBT can prepare to collect data:

What is: Reviewing the target behavior, have materials ready (pencil, sheet), identifying when/what you are observing, establish this with other professionals

100

Ensuring the definition of a target behavior is clear enough so that all RBTs know what they are looking for (not subjective). Hint: 2 key words

What is writing behavior objectives in observable and measurable terms.

100

This type of reinforcement is used when teaching new skills and reinforcing each instance of a desired behavior.

What is continuous reinforcement. BONUS: When is intermittent reinforcement used?

100

Why behavior occurs and common reasons why problem behavior occurs.

What is the function of behavior E.A.T.S. (Escape, Attention, Tangible, Sensory) 

100

These are outside variables that may affect a client that are important to note in your objective data collection.

What are: illness, relocation, medication, sleep disturbances, outside issues with family

What is continuous data collection procedures BONUS: What are examples of these?

200

These are at least 2 examples of ways we can directly identify a student's preferred items/activities.

What is preference assessments: Free Operant, Single Stimulus, Paired Choice, Multiple Stimulus with/without Replacement.

200

These are required parts of a skill acquisition plan: (Hint: This is Program Properties on Rethink or in a B.I.P.)

What is: what you are teaching, when/where you are teaching, materials needed, how to reinforce, how to progress monitor and a plan for generalization/maintenance

200

These are two examples of antecedent interventions that focus on impacting the effectiveness of a certain event or stimulus in its role as reinforcer. 

What are establishing and abolishing operations

200

This is the policy that you follow as an RBT at Hopebridge in relation to abuse and neglect reporting.

What is a mandated reporter.

300

These are examples of discontinuous data collection procedures (you must be able to define each of these three).

What are: partial interval, whole interval and momentary time sampling

300

The three types of individualized assessments that you may assist with as RBTs

What are: curriculum based, developmental, social skills

300

These are the steps of a discrete trial in discrete trial teaching:

What is: the discriminative stimulus (Sd), client response, reinforcing stimulus and the intertrial interval

300

These are the three instances when staff at Hopebridge use a crisis response and implement physical interventions:

What is: 1) to prevent a student from injuring themselves, 2) to prevent the student from injury another student or staff, 3) to prevent extreme destruction of property

300

These are roles that an RBT has at Hopebridge.

What is the implementation of intervention plans, assist in the assessment of clients, take and enter data, follow the ethical guidelines of RBT through the BACB.

400

This type of data collection involves looking at the physically recorded data of the behavior in it's environment.

What is permanent product recording.

400

You are asked to assist with an assessment of a child's social skills. Give two examples of how you can record for this.

What is: completing a rating scale based on your experience with the student, observe the student in their environment and describe what you see v. a typical peer (if available), probe for specific skills

400

When reducing your prompts over time to increase independence this is called:

What is prompt fading

400

Using extinction means that a staff member is doing the following.

What is ignoring or not reinforcing a behavior that had been previously reinforced BONUS: what is it called if during extinction there is an increase in problem behavior?

RBTs must follow a subset of the Guidelines of Responsible Conduct for Behavior Analysts. Two examples of these are: maintaining confidentiality and avoiding false statements- which mean...

Confidentiality: not disclosing personally identifiable information to those who it is not professionally relevant. Do not discuss in public or share with staff members that do not have a need to know for programming. 

Avoiding false statements: do not make public statements that are fraudulent about the practice, research or other methods used in your behavioral work or content of behavior analysis.

500

This type of measurement both overestimates and underestimates a behavior.

What is Momentary Time Sampling

500

Describe how you as an RBT will conduct/assist with Functional Assessment procedures

What is: collect ABC data, define target behaviors, describe the environment, enter data, discuss other variables that may impact behavior

500

Stimulus discrimination training requires one behavior and two stimuli conditions. This is how the instructor teaches the student to do the behavior when one stimulus is present but not the other.

What is reinforcing the behavior in the presence of one stimuli and not reinforcing it in the presence of another. BONUS: give an example

500

These are Differential Reinforcement schedules other than incompatible behaviors.

What is Differential Reinforcement of Other or Alternative Behavior (DRA, DRO) BONUS: Give an example of a DRA or DRO
