Janice saw that her son began hitting his head and participating in self-injurious conduct. As a result, she gathered information on what conditions "provoked" the conduct. She also kept track of how she and others reacted to the conduct. Janice employs what kind of evaluation?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Janice is completing a functional assessment to determine the self-injurious behavior's potential function. Collecting ABC data is a part of doing a functional assessment. What happened prior to the act is referred to as the antecedent. The manner in which the behavior was manifested (i .e., operational definition). What happened as a result of the behavior.

The goal of a _____ assessment is to figure out why there is a behavioral outburst.

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Functional behavior assessments are used to figure out why a behavior occurs (i.e., to figure out what function(s) the behavior serves).

Simon is a 12-year-old boy who enjoys playing on the playground with his buddies. Elopement is one of Simon's problem behaviors, which entails leaving his house and running out to the neighborhood playground without asking permission. This usually happens while his parents are at work or cleaning the house. Simon's pals are always glad to see him when he arrives to the playground, and they laugh and joke together until Simon's parents discover that he has left the house. Identify the example's conclusion.

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
What happened after the goal response is the consequence (i .e., elopement). In this scenario, the result is that he can see his pals (e.g., smiles, talks, jokes). Access to friends (i.e., positive reinforcement / attention function) is most likely maintaining the elopement issue behavior.

When analyzing a problem behavior, what form of evaluation is used to discuss the behavior and ask questions of those who are familiar with the client?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Indirect evaluation entails talking to people who are familiar with the client and the target behavior and filling out questions with them. Direct assessment, on the other hand, entails monitoring the client and his or her behavior in person.

Which way of completing a functional behavior evaluation produces the most accurate, valid data among the options provided?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Direct assessment entails physically monitoring the client and his or her behavior, whereas the other approaches are indirect and do not entail direct observation. As a result, direct assessment yields the most reliable data.

Simon is a 12-year-old boy who enjoys playing on the playground with his buddies. Elopement is one of Simon's problem behaviors, which entails leaving his house and running out to the neighborhood playground without asking permission. This usually happens while his parents are at work or cleaning the house. Simons pals are always glad to see him when he arrives to the playground, and they laugh and joke together until Simon's parents discover that he has left the house. Identify the example's antecedent.

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
What happened before the goal reaction is referred to as the antecedent (i.e., elopement). The antecedent in this situation is when Simon's parents are working and cleaning the house. Elopement is more likely to occur during these periods.

Examine the diagram. What document is this sample template an example of?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
The collection of structured ABC data takes place on a document with pre-made checklists. If a demand was made and a problem behavior occurred as a result, the observer would mark "demand" in the antecedent section.

Using ABC data, a therapist has discovered hypothetical functions of attention and escape for physical aggressiveness. What kind of evaluation did the therapist conduct?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Therapists use a functional assessment to figure out why a problem behavior is occurring. To discover hypothetical functions, data on Antecedent - Behavior - Consequence (ABC) is collected. What happened prior to the act is referred to as the antecedent. The manner in which the behavior was manifested (i .e., operational definition). What happened as a result of the behavior.

Simon is a 12-year-old boy who enjoys playing on the playground with his buddies. Elopement is one of Simon's problem behaviors, which entails leaving his house and running out to the neighborhood playground without asking permission. This usually happens while his parents are at work or cleaning the house. Simon's pals are always glad to see him when he arrives to the playground, and they laugh and joke together until Simon's parents discover that he has left the house. Identify the example's target behavior.

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
The clinical team is striving to either decrease [if problematic] or promote the desired behavior (if desirable). Elopement is the most prominent negative behavior in this situation. As a result, Simon's eloping to the playground is the target behavior.

What form of evaluation is it when a client and their conduct are seen in person when assessing a problem behavior?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Direct assessment entails personally observing the client and his or her conduct. Indirect evaluation does not entail seeing the client or their problem behavior; rather, it entails filling out questionnaires with others who are familiar with the client and their goal behavior.

Examine the diagram. What document is this sample template an example of?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
While personally observing a client, narrative ABC data, also known as unstructured ABC data, entails gathering data on an open-ended data sheet that provides room for the antecedent, behavior, and consequence. In narrative ABC data, there are no prepared selections.

A therapist has been requested to evaluate a client's repertory of mands (i.e., asking for wants and needs to be met). As a result, the therapist shows the client a preferred object (e.g., an iPad) but does not give it to them. The therapist collects data while waiting to see if the client has made proper requests. What kind of evaluation is being carried out?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Before teaching a skill, a skill acquisition evaluation is performed to obtain baseline data on the skill. The baseline refers to a client's skill set prior to any teaching. Before teaching any skill, it is critical to collect data; without a baseline, it is impossible to measure the intervention's effectiveness. Additionally, you may squander time targeting a talent that the client already has or a skill that is too tough for the client to learn right now, both of which may waste the customer's time unwittingly.
