This assignment is the second component of your Assessment, Intervention Support, and Related Systems project. Before proceeding with the assignment, please review the activities in the Unit 1 studies to refresh your memory on the functions, dimensions, and procedures of measurement and graphic display of behavioral data in applied behavior analysis. For this assignment, you will be assessed on your understanding of the following course competency:

Apply measurement, data display, and data-based decisions to effectively change human behavior.

My target behavior to graph would be:

Reference the attached Week 2 comments. In my Week 2 Assignment, my behavior to target is Jack not reading on a 4th grade level, as he currently reads on a first grade level. On this assignment I did not do very well but I thought I understood the assignment at the last minute be obviously I did not as I received a 47 out of 100 points.

In your second project component:
1. Explain the process of measurement you will use to analyze your case study. In your explanation, take into consideration environmental variables, available resources, and behavior of interest relevant to your case study. Remember, applied behavior analysts measure behavior to answer questions about the existence and nature of functional relations between socially significant behavior and environmental variables.

2. Select an appropriate form of visual display of behavioral data (choose from line graphs, bar graphs, cumulative records, semilogarithmic charts, or scatterplots) from which valid and reliable decisions are best analyzed in your case study. Remember, the visual format you select should depend on the type of raw data you collect from your case study and the primary purpose of its evaluation.

3. Justify how the selected form of data display will best allow you to make data-based decisions for your case study. Remember, the primary function of graphic displays of behavioral data is to communicate quantitative relations. Take into consideration validity, accuracy, and reliability of data.

In the case study presented in this paper, the desired goal is to help improve Jack’s reading competency from a 1st grade standard level to a grade 4th grade standard level.
Reading is a very complex activity - it requires simultaneous coordination across many tasks. According to Logan (1997), in order to achieve that simultaneous coordination across tasks, instantaneous execution of component skills is required. Reading fluency is achieved with instantaneous execution, so that performance is speeded, seemingly effortless, autonomous, and achieved without much consciousness or awareness (Logan, 1997). By definition, reading fluency refers to accurate and automatic decoding of the words in the text, along with expressive interpretation of the text, to achieve optimal comprehension (Rasinski, 2004). In reading, fluency is vital because it affects how well a reader understands what he or she read (Rasinski, 2004). Oral reading fluency is considered an indicator of overall reading competency...
