10.2 Determining the Prompt Level for a Teaching Trial

This is the open-access version of this module and your progress is not tracked or recorded

Before each trial, refer to the data sheet. For each teaching trial, look at the probe for that target to see what prompt level was needed to be correct. That is the prompt you will immediately provide during the teaching trial. For example, in teaching trial 1, dog is the target so when looking at dog in the probes, you see that you should immediately provide a gestural prompt for dog. However, for teaching trial 2, pig is the target so when looking at pig in the probes you see that the learner was correct independently, so you should not provide a prompt, but should wait 3 seconds for the learner to respond.

  • Immediately provide a gestural prompt for dog
  • Do NOT immediately provide a prompt for pig
