Modiwl - Semester 1 a 2
The content form this module is taken from the BCBA Task List (5th Edition). Section 1: Applications, H. Selecting and Managing Interventions and I. Personal Supervision and Management.
- Monitor client progress and treatment integrity.
- Make data-based decisions about the effectiveness of the intervention and the need for treatment revision.
- Make data-based decisions about the need for ongoing services.
- Collaborate with others who support and/or provide services to clients. State the reasons for using behavior-analytic supervision and the potential risks of ineffective supervision (e.g., poor client outcomes, poor supervisee performance).
- Establish clear performance expectations for the supervisor and supervisee.
- Select supervision goals based on an assessment of the supervisee’s skills.
- Train personnel to competently perform assessment and intervention procedures.
- Use performance monitoring, feedback, and reinforcement systems.
- Use function-based strategies to improve personnel performance.
- Evaluate the effects of supervision (e.g., on client outcomes, on supervisee repertoires).
- When a target behavior is to be decreased, select an acceptable alternative behavior to be established or increased.
- Use a functional assessment approach (e.g., performance diagnostics) to identify variables affecting personnel performance.
-threshold -50%> - Adequate demonstration of behaviour analytic skills but little in depth analyses. - Coherent arguments, but limited synthesis or original interpretation. - Weak or poor-fit experimental design, data collection, and data analysis. - Adequate but superficial review of the relevant literature. - Appropriate integration of project with the relevant literature. - Appropriate interpretation of results with the relevant literature.
-good -60%> - Reasonably comprehensive application of behaviour analytic concepts to clinical practice. - Some basic understanding of the potential applications of the project. - Some original interpretation. - Some evidence of extensive and thorough study - The communication style will be acceptable with likely some fairly minor typographical or other errors. - There will be good referencing of primary source material where appropriate. - Adequate knowledge of some key concepts. - Weaknesses in understanding of theoretical issues with multiple/major factual errors. - Limited evidence of critical analysis and evaluation of theory and research. - Arguments are weak or underdeveloped, with little synthesis or original interpretation. - Weaknesses in experimental design, data collection, or data analysis. - Incomplete or superficial review of the relevant literature. • Weak integration and interpretation of results with the relevant literature.
-excellent -70%> - Comprehensive and accurate application of behavioural concepts to applied problems. - Depth of insight into theoretical and applied issues. - Evidence of thorough understanding of and/or original insights as to the potential applications of the project. - Coherent arguments, with accurate and succinct synthesis and original interpretation. - Clear structure and no irrelevant material. - Strong experimental design, data collection, and data analysis. - Thorough yet concise review of the relevant the literature. - Exceptional integration and interpretation of project and results with the relevant literature. - The communication style will be precise and concise with very few typographical or other errors. - There will be comprehensive referencing of primary source material where appropriate.
- Students will consider how to use data to support treatment decisions and evaluate treatment integrity.
- Students will critically analyse peer reviewed literature to guide their decision making about choosing and evaluating behaviour change interventions.
- Students will explain how the techniques used in applied behaviour analysis can be applied to the supervision of trainee behaviour analysts.
