ABA 865 - Research Tool Demonstration


Traditionally, Ph.D. programs required the Doctoral student to demonstrate fluency in two or more romance languages in order for the student to have the ability to read the classics and benefit from previously published research. With the evolution of technology, this standard has given way to the need for modern students to demonstrate competency in the contemporary tools necessary to function as a successful Behavior Analyst. Research tools can include computer-programming skills, the use of alternative language systems such as American Sign Language or Braille, web-based data collection/graphing systems, or computer educational management systems. This course is designed to assess the student’s demonstrated competency in the use of a minimum of two such research tools. Research tools are designed to provide the candidate with a proficiency in a restricted content area that is essential to their ability to function as a professional Behavior Analyst. It is the responsibility of the student’s Dessertation Committee to specify the tools that the student will use to meet this standard.
