### Mr. Garcia checked at five-minute intervals to see if Jane was playing appropriately in a small group. He was using:

• A.

Interval recording

• B.

Time sampling

• C.

Event recording

• D.

Duration recording

B. Time sampling
Explanation
Mr. Garcia checked at regular intervals of five minutes to observe if Jane was playing appropriately in a small group. This method of observing behavior is known as time sampling. Time sampling involves observing and recording behavior at specific time intervals rather than continuously monitoring it. In this case, Mr. Garcia used time sampling to assess Jane's behavior in a small group setting.

### Mrs. Golden wanted to collect baseline data on how often Lauren speaks to her neighbor during silent reading. She divided the 15 minutes into equal 30-second intervals and made a notation of Lauren's talking during each. The method of data collection she used was:

• A.

Event recording

• B.

Time sampling

• C.

Interval recording

• D.

Anecdotal recording

C. Interval recording
Explanation
Mrs. Golden collected baseline data on how often Lauren speaks to her neighbor during silent reading by dividing the 15 minutes into equal 30-second intervals and making a notation of Lauren's talking during each interval. This method of data collection is called interval recording, where behavior is observed and recorded at specific time intervals.

### The data collection technique that notes every time a behavior occurs within an observation period is:

• A.

Event recording

• B.

Interval recording

• C.

Time sampling

• D.

Permanent product recording

A. Event recording
Explanation
Event recording is the data collection technique that involves noting every time a behavior occurs within an observation period. This technique is useful for collecting data on behaviors that have a clear beginning and end, such as hitting or speaking. By recording each occurrence of the behavior, researchers can obtain an accurate count of how often it happens. This technique is particularly useful when the frequency of the behavior is of interest.

### "Brooke was out of her seat for 16 minutes during lunch period" is an example of what behavioral dimension?

• A.

Latency

• B.

Frequency

• C.

Duration

• D.

Rate

C. Duration
Explanation
The given statement "Brooke was out of her seat for 16 minutes during lunch period" refers to the amount of time Brooke spent out of her seat. This aligns with the behavioral dimension of duration, which measures the length of time a behavior occurs.

### The behavioral dimension determined when you measure the length of time between instructions to perform it and the occurence of the behavior is known as:

• A.

Latency

• B.

Duration

• C.

Frequency

• D.

Rate

A. Latency
Explanation
Latency refers to the time between giving an instruction and the occurrence of the behavior. It is a measure of the delay or response time. This dimension helps to understand how quickly or slowly a behavior occurs after being prompted.

### The _______ of behavior is its intensity

• A.

Rate

• B.

Locus

• C.

Latency

• D.

Force

D. Force
Explanation
The intensity of behavior refers to the level of force or strength with which it is expressed. It represents the magnitude or power behind the behavior, indicating how strong or weak it is.

### Ms. Lee wants to increase the amount of time her kindergarten students remain on task. What recording system would be most appropriate for Ms. Lee to use?

• A.

Latency recording

• B.

Duration recording

• C.

Interval recording

• D.

Event recording

B. Duration recording
Explanation
Duration recording would be the most appropriate recording system for Ms. Lee to use in order to increase the amount of time her kindergarten students remain on task. Duration recording involves measuring the length of time a behavior occurs, which would allow Ms. Lee to track and analyze how long her students are staying on task. This information can help her identify patterns and make targeted interventions to improve their focus and attention span.

### While in the community, Miss Nelson records whether or not Ethan is able to independtly perform each step of the shopping task analysis. This is an example of what recording procedure?

• A.

Interval recording

• B.

Anecdotal recording

• C.

Permanent product recording

• D.

Event recording

C. Permanent product recording
Explanation
In this scenario, Miss Nelson is recording whether or not Ethan is able to independently perform each step of the shopping task analysis. Permanent product recording involves documenting the end result or outcome of a behavior rather than observing the behavior itself. In this case, Miss Nelson is likely documenting the final outcome of Ethan's ability to independently perform each step of the shopping task analysis, making it an example of permanent product recording.

### Time sampling would be the most appropriate method for recording which behavior?

• A.

Hitting others

• B.

A student raising his hand

• C.

Wandering around classroom/out-of-seat

• D.

A. Hitting others
Explanation
Time sampling would be the most appropriate method for recording the behavior of hitting others. Time sampling involves observing and recording behavior at specific intervals or during specific time periods. Since hitting others is a behavior that occurs intermittently and may not be easily predicted, time sampling would allow for systematic and objective data collection by observing and recording instances of hitting others during predetermined time intervals. This method would provide a representative sample of the behavior over time and help in analyzing the frequency and patterns of hitting others.

### Cole has difficulty making it to the bus stop on time each school morning. His parents purchased him a new alarm clock that sounds promptly are 6:15 A.M Cole has yet to fail to get out of bed once his alarm has sounded. However, 45 minutes does not seem to be enough time for Cole to eat breakfast and get ready for school. Cole's parents have decided that he probably needs to get up earlier. What recording procedure could his parents use to determine how muc earlier to set the alarm clock?

• A.

Time sampling

• B.

Interval recording

• C.

Event recording

• D.

Latency recording
