Description

Visual analysis of data is a cornerstone of single-subject research. Yet some researchers have found that experts often disagree about what constitutes an intervention effect. This potential lack of consistency across visual analysts can have negative implications for both research and practice. This tutorial offers a systematic, evidence-based procedure for training individuals to conduct valid and reliable visual analyses of single-subject data. It features extensive discrimination training and practice opportunities; adaptive instruction and remediation for errors; and full audio narration in a self-paced, mobile-friendly format.

    Wish I had this tutorial a long time ago! So well put together and easy to navigate… also did not take too much time to complete and the content was well worth the price, which was extremely affordable. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking to master the basics of visual analysis. I will definitely be looking for other levels of this course as well, so I can further my knowledge from basics to advanced someday.

    I have a much better understanding of visual analysis now and feel more confident in being able to visually analyze data to determine the effect of treatment. The tutorial provides step by step for the process with a lot of practice and explanations to improve the process of visual analysis.

    The way each slide only had a small amount of information made it easy to not feel overwhelmed by each slide and encouraged me to keep going.

      I’m sorry to hear you did not like the tutorial, though I do not quite understand your comments about it. Extensive feedback is provided throughout the tutorial on all practice activities and knowledge checks (detailed feedback is not provided for questions on the final quiz because that is intended simply as a measure of what you’ve learned, not as an instructional activity). The answers for both practice questions and the final quiz have been double-checked by multiple experts over the years and no errors in their scoring have been detected or reported. If you think there is a specific error in how a question has been scored, please send it to us for review.
