Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    As an evidence-based science, there are many reasons to use measurement in reports. Which of these is not true?

    • A.

      Helps practitioners optimize effectiveness

    • B.

      Enables practitioners to be accountable to clients, consumers, employers and society.

    • C.

      Assists in the practice of speculations

    • D.

      Helps practitioner achieve ethical standards

    Correct Answer
    C. Assists in the practice of speculations
    Explanation
    Measurement in reports helps practitioners optimize effectiveness, enables practitioners to be accountable to clients, consumers, employers, and society, and helps practitioners achieve ethical standards. However, it does not assist in the practice of speculations. Speculations involve making educated guesses or hypotheses without concrete evidence or data, whereas measurement in reports relies on empirical evidence and factual information.

    Factual information used as a basis for reasoning, discussion or calculation defines:

    • A.

      Data

    • B.

      Measurement

    • C.

      Measurement Procedures

    • D.

      None of the above 

    Correct Answer
    A. Data
    Explanation
    Data refers to factual information that is used as a basis for reasoning, discussion, or calculation. It can be in the form of numbers, statistics, observations, or any other relevant information that can be analyzed and interpreted. Data is essential for making informed decisions, conducting research, and drawing conclusions. Measurement and measurement procedures, on the other hand, are processes used to obtain data, but they are not synonymous with data itself. Therefore, the correct answer is data.

    How can a therapist prepare for data collection?

    • A.

      Read the data and notes from the last session

    • B.

      Prepare materials needed for the program 

    • C.

      Have a clip board with data sheets or device ready 

    • D.

      All of the above 

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above 
    Explanation
    A therapist can prepare for data collection by reading the data and notes from the last session to have a clear understanding of the client's progress. They can also prepare materials needed for the program, ensuring that they have everything ready for the session. Additionally, having a clipboard with data sheets or a device ready allows the therapist to efficiently collect and record data during the session. Therefore, all of the above options are necessary steps for a therapist to adequately prepare for data collection.

    The most common graph used in ABA is: 

    • A.

      Pie Graph

    • B.

      Bar Graph 

    • C.

      Cumulative Graph 

    • D.

      Line Graph 

    Correct Answer
    D. Line Graph 
    Explanation
    The most common graph used in ABA is the Line Graph. This type of graph is used to visually represent data over time. It is particularly useful in ABA because it allows for the analysis of behavior change and the effectiveness of interventions. By plotting data points on a line graph, patterns and trends can be easily identified, helping to guide decision-making and treatment planning.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    A trend in a graph represents 

    • A.

      The overall direction taken by the data path

    • B.

      The vertical representation of the average data values 

    • C.

      Visual representation of consistency in data

    • D.

      All of the above 

    Correct Answer
    A. The overall direction taken by the data path
    Explanation
    The trend in a graph represents the overall direction taken by the data path. It shows whether the data is increasing, decreasing, or remaining stable over a period of time. By analyzing the trend, we can understand the general pattern or behavior of the data and make predictions or decisions based on it.

  • 6. 

    A solid condition change line indicates: 

    • A.

      A temporary disruption from services (winter break, therapist on vacation...)

    • B.

      An indication that the treatment procedure has moved into a new phase 

    • C.

      The average values of the data

    • D.

      None of the above 

    Correct Answer
    B. An indication that the treatment procedure has moved into a new phase 
    Explanation
    A solid condition change line indicates that the treatment procedure has moved into a new phase. This means that there has been a significant change in the treatment plan or approach, indicating progress or a shift in focus. It is a visual representation of a transition from one stage of treatment to another. This helps to track and monitor the progress of the treatment procedure and ensures that the appropriate steps are taken at each phase.

    Determine the data collection described:  Jessa observed her sister hiccup 12 times 

    • A.

      Rate

    • B.

      Frequency

    • C.

      Duration 

    • D.

      Count 

    Correct Answer
    D. Count 
    Explanation
    The data collection described in this scenario is "Count." Jessa observed her sister hiccup 12 times, and counting the number of occurrences is the appropriate method for collecting this data. The other options, such as rate, frequency, and duration, do not accurately capture the nature of the data being collected in this scenario.

      Latency 

    • D.

      Duration 

    Correct Answer
    B. Frequency 
    Explanation
    The measurement procedure used in this scenario is frequency. Frequency refers to the number of times an event or behavior occurs within a specific time period. In this case, Jacob observed 7 occurrences of clapping during a 3-hour session, indicating the frequency of clapping during that time period.

  • 9. 

    In this particular scenario, latency is being tracked to ensure our client is responding to stimuli in a timely manner. James tells his client, "get your pencil so we can write". James starts his timer, and stops it once: 

    • A.

      The client begins writing his name

    • B.

      The client begins to move toward opening his pencil case

    • C.

      The client physically has the pencil in his hand

    • D.

      Latency is the incorrect measurement system 

    Correct Answer
    B. The client begins to move toward opening his pencil case
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The client begins to move toward opening his pencil case". In this scenario, latency is being measured to track the client's response time to James' instruction to get the pencil. The client physically having the pencil in his hand indicates that the latency measurement has ended, as it shows that the client has completed the task of getting the pencil.

  • 10. 

    Describe the measurement procedure: During a 10 second interval, if the client chewed on his hair at any time the therapist would mark this as an occurrence. The therapist is tracking behavior using:

    • A.

      Whole Interval

    • B.

      Partial Interval 

    • C.

      MTS

    • D.

      Frequency 

    Correct Answer
    B. Partial Interval 
    Explanation
    The therapist is using the partial interval measurement procedure to track the behavior of the client. This means that they are observing whether the client chews on his hair at any point during the 10-second interval, and marking it as an occurrence if they do. In partial interval measurement, the behavior is only recorded if it occurs at any time during the interval, regardless of how long it lasts. This is different from whole interval measurement, where the behavior would have to occur for the entire duration of the interval to be recorded.

    One advantage of using Momentary Time Sampling is:

    • A.

      The environment is altered, therefore the therapist does not need to keep a watchful eye because the end product is visible 

    • B.

      Once the behavior occurs the therapist can move on to the next interval

    • C.

      The data overestimates behaviors providing a more accurate representation 

    • D.

      The therapist does not need to keep a watchful eye because this measurement procedure does not exist

    Correct Answer
    A. The environment is altered, therefore the therapist does not need to keep a watchful eye because the end product is visible 
    Explanation
    The advantage of using Momentary Time Sampling is that the environment is altered, therefore the therapist does not need to keep a watchful eye because the end product is visible. This means that the therapist does not have to constantly observe the behavior during the entire interval, but can instead focus on other tasks or behaviors. This method allows for more efficient data collection and reduces the need for constant monitoring.
