Friday February 22nd at 10 am in Posvar 3610

SPEAKER: Caitlin F. Spear, PhD - Director, Applied Research and Evaluation

TOPIC: Single Case Design

TITLE: Introduction to Single-Case Research Design

ABSTRACT: In this talk, I will provide an introductory overview of single-case research design (SCRD), and discuss SCRD’s alignment with more traditional quantitative methods. I will describe the basic components of various single-case designs, and provide an overview of recently established design, evidence, and social validity standards. In reviewing analysis methods, I will focus primarily on visual analysis, however I will also highlight additional statistical analysis approaches being used in various contexts. We will discuss the ways in which SCRD can be used to document evidence-based practices, and discuss SCRD contributions in comparison with conventional group intervention designs.
