Psychotropic drugs
Psychological testing is used for all the following except:
Determination of academic achievement
A technique in which a psychologist compares two interpretations of a single set of behaviors -- e.g. idealistic and real points of view is called

The clinician is describing:

Meichenbaum

These tests are heavily loaded with verbal content.
Planned ignoring, signal interference, and proximity control are techniques used in:

This behavioral checklist is unique because it was five subscales that deal with behavior that are indicative of the five components of the federal definition of emotional disturbance. This checklist is called the:
Behavior Evaluation Scale
The term describing the consistence of a test is:
reliability
dependent variable
The behavior to be changed through intervention.
Duration Recording
Recording the amount of time between the initiation of a response and its conclusion: an observational recording procedure
Event Recording
Recording a tally or frequency count of behavior as it occurs within an observation period; an observational recording procedure.
Extinction
Withholding reinforcement for a previously reinforced behavior to reduce the occurrence of the behavior
Frequency
The number of times a behavior occurs during an observation period.
Independent Variable
The treatment or intervention that the experimenter manipulates in order to change a behavior.
Fixed interval schedule
The interval of time is standard
Variable interval schedule
The interval of time varies
Negative reinforcement
The contingent removal of an averside stimulus immediately following a response. Negative reinforcement increase the future rate and/or probability of the response
Observational Recording Systems
Methods of data collection used to record aspects of behavior while it actually occurs
Operating Conditioning
The arrangement of environmental variables to establish a functional relationship between a voluntary behavior and its consequences.
Postive Reinforcement
The contingent presentation of a stimulus immediately following a response, which increases the future rate and/or probability of the response.
Premack principle
A principle stating that any high-probability activity may serve as a positive reinforcer for any low probability activity
Punishment
The contingent presentation of a stimulus immediately following a response, which dcreases the future rate and/or probability of the response.
Fixed ratio
the number of appropriate responses required for reinforcement is held constant
Variable ratio schedule
the number of appropriate responses required for reinforcement varies
Response duration schedules
Schedules for the delivery of reinforces contingent on how long a student engages in a continuous behavior
Fixed response duration schedule
The duration of the behavior required for reinforcement is held constant
Variable response duration schedule
The amount of time required for reinforcement varies.
Time sampling
An observational recording system in which an observation period is divided into equal intervals; the target behavior is observed at the end of each interval
