Data Collection

Try the (1) Compliance Probe (Rhode, p. 13); and (2) Behavior Observation Form (p. 16).

If you have access to children, observe a child to get authentic data. If you do not, then observe a pet.

Then, follow the directions and calculate percent compliance for the compliance probe…and percent on-task for your kid and a peer.

Write a paragraph reflecting on your experiences and analyzing the results.

Cite the literature to back up your points, reflections, and analyses.
