2. One of the fundamental questions to answer before initiating behavioral assessment is:
A Who will conduct the assessment?
B Where will observations be conducted?
C What is the nature of the problem behavior?
D Who has the authority and skill to intervene with the behavior?

3. When interviewing a significant other about a client’s behavior, the behavior analyst should ask variations of all of the following types of questions except
A What
B How
C Why
D When

4. The preferred method of behavioral assessment to determine which behaviors to target for change is ____________ _____________.
A Ecological assessment
B Interviews
C Checklists
D ABC recording

5. A(n) ________ behavior is a behavior that produces indirect benefits to clients by potentially increasing opportunities for participation in other environments.
A Access
B Cusp
C Key
D Invitation

6. A behavior that produces corresponding modifications or co-variations in other adaptive, untrained behaviors is a(n) _____________________.
A Behavior cusp
B Critical behavior
C Initiating behavior
D Pivotal behavior

7. Improving academic grades is not a good target behavior because academic grades
A Are not a socially valid outcome.
B Do not specify the behaviors required to achieve the goal.
C Are too complex an outcome for behavior analysis.
D Have poorly defined performance criteria.

8. When prioritizing behaviors for change a chronic behavior _____________ when compared to a more recently acquired behavior.
A Is easier to change
B Takes precedence
C Is less important
D Requires less intervention

9. One method of priority ranking various potential target behaviors is to use a(n)
A Ranking matrix
B Standardized test
C Interviewing significant others
D Behavioral assessment

10. Explicit behavior definitions are important to the practitioner of applied behavior analysis for all of the following except:
A Ease of evaluation
B Increased likelihood of behavior change
C Accurate measurement of behavior
D Demonstration of effectiveness

11. A good behavior definition should be _____________, __________, and ____________.
A Objective, clear, complete
B Concise, specific, limited
C Functional, clear, socially valid
D Measurable, mentalistic, meaningful


1. TRUE or FALSE. An anecdotal observation is a form of direct, continuous observation of all behaviors of interest and the environmental conditions.

2. TRUE or FALSE. A topographical definition classifies behavior in terms of their common effects on the environment.

3. TRUE or FALSE. The belief that individuals with disabilities should be physically and socially integrated into society to the maximum extent possible is called habilitation.

4. TRUE or FALSE. Learning a pivotal behavior can result in modification of other behaviors that have not yet been learned.

5. TRUE or FALSE. An ecological assessment is an essential component in applied behavioral analysis.

Short Answer/Essay

1. Explain the benefits of interviews as a method for obtaining assessment information?

2. Compare the methods of standardized tests and direct observation with regard to how assessment information is obtained, the type of information gathered, and effects on the target behaviors.

3. Describe the causes of reactivity and what measures should behavior analysts undertake to minimize this effect?

4. How does the concept of habilitation help the behavior analyst determine which behavior should be targeted for behavior change?

5. Explain how the concept of normalization influences the selection of target behavior and appropriate interventions.

6. What ethical considerations should a behavior analyst consider before engaging in behavior change procedures?

7. Explain the benefits to practitioners of using observable and measurable terms to describe behaviors and intervention outcomes.

8. Discuss the importance of replacement behavior when reducing or eliminating target behavior.

9. Explain the problems with setting a general goal such as to be more successful as opposed to a more specific goal.

10. Explain the differences between a behavior cusp and a pivotal behavior.

11. Explain the benefits of including client, family, and/or staff in the goal determination process.
