SPY 602 Single Case Research Methods

This course is designed to introduce students to research designs used in a comprehensive, systematic process of decision making and problem solving. This course will emphasize methods for evaluating the effectiveness of academic and behavioral interventions for school-aged children. A history of experimental design, types of experimental reasoning, and experimental validity lay the groundwork for understanding how single-case research designs are used to assess the efficacy of applied interventions. Students will learn how to identify and record behaviors, analyze and display data, match research designs to the research question, and flexibly employ research designs in applied settings. Finally, students will be exposed to technology and information resources applicable to conducting single-case research. Prerequisites: Satisfactory completion of SPY 601 or program permission.
