The process used when a learner responds incorrectly to an acquisition skill

what is error correction

100

the process of breaking a behavior down into smaller steps

what is task analysis

100

Procedure in which reinforcement that is provided for problem behavior (often unintentionally) is discontinued in order to decrease or eliminate occurrences of these types of negative (or problem) behaviors.

what is extinction

100
the most important thing to know before collecting behavior data (tells you exactly what to look for)

what is operational definition of the target behavior

100

the types of assessments used to identify program goals for a learner

what is curriculum bases assessments (e.g., ABLLS)
200

Natural motivators and everyday encounters are important to this instructional method

What is Natural Environment Teaching

200

The written out description of what to do when a behavior takes place

what is Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP)
200

During this process do not make demands, give directions, or ask questions. Instead, narrate and comment.

what is pairing

200

two types of continuous measurement procedures

any two including Frequency, Duration, Rate, ABC, Latency

200

each time we provide the SD for a program we are running a ___. 

what is trial 

300

A skill is in this phase when the learner has mastered it and we are checking to ensure they still have the skill

what is maintenance 

300

The hypothesized function of behavior if a student is flopping on the floor to get out of doing the task

What is escape

300

interventions based on changing something in the environment including establishing/motivating operations and SDs

what is antecedent strategies

300

One reason it is important to graph data

what is visual inspection, decision making, or fun

300

programs that teach a child to label an item are teaching this skill

what is tacting 

400

Training technique aimed at breaking down general skills to be taught into discrete steps in a controlled systematic way

What is DTT

400

The techniques we use in an attempt to calm a learner or prevent them from further agitation 

what is de-escalation

400

when behavior initially evoked (controlled) by one SD comes under the control of a different SD

what is stimulus transfer control

400

The type of data collection if recording the impact a behavior has on the environment such as the outcome or product of a behavior

what is permanent product recoding

400

You are teaching this skill when the SD indicates "copy me" or "do this" 

what is imitation 

500

The process of modifying a behavior from one approximation to the target behavior via differential reinforcement strategies

what is shaping

500

a description of behaviors in terms of the operations (procedures, actions, or processes) by which it could be observed and measured.

what is operational definition

500

gradually decreasing the intensity of a physical dimension of a stimulus that controls a response (A picture of a banana is printed behind the word 'banana' and is gradually removed as you teach the child to read the word.  

what is stimulus fading 

500

A type of line graph in which data is added from the pervious point. If their is no increase, data points stays at the same level

what is continuous graph

500

Filling in the answer to a question without physical stimuli is targeting this skill 

what is intraverbal
