I want to take data on my clients tantrum behaviors in the classroom setting. I am personally unable to observe and record the data due to scheduling conflicts so I train the classroom teacher on how to reocrd the data for me. Based on previously collected ABC data, we determined the target behaviors mainly occur when the client is presented with a novel task. The target behaviors also reportedly occur for long durations and require the observer/teacher to intervene many times to keep the client safe. Which of the following measurement systems would be best and why?

a. Continuous measurement because it is suitable for behavior which occur for long durations

b. Discontinous measurement because it is suitable for behavior which occur for long durations

c. Continuous measurement because it is suitable for behavior which occur for high rates

d. Discontinous measurement because it is suitable for behavior which occur for low rates 

b. Discontinous measurement because it is suitable for behavior which occur for long durations
