Reliable data is not always accurate, but accurate data are always reliable. Berk, R. A. (1979). Generalization of behavioural observations: a clarification of the Interobserver agreement and the reliability of the inter-observer. American Journal of Mental Deficiency, 83, 460-472. Among all the IOA algorithms based on events, the analysis of concordance on frequency and event records. These measures consist of (a) the global census, (b) partial agreement at regular intervals, (c) a precise agreement and (d) IOA trial test algorithms. After a brief overview of the different event-based algorithms, Table 1 summarizes the strengths of the four event-based algorithms for behavioral reliability analysis considerations. Suppose a research team collects frequency data to respond to 15-1 m observations (see Figure 1). Test s.i.A.
IOA. Savvy readers will find that IOA algorithms based on the above events are adapted to free-operator responses, responses that can occur at any time and are not anchored in events, but these measures do not explicitly take into account the experience-based reaction, which measures binary results (e.g. B presence/non-presence, yes/no, on-task/task). Thus, the experimental IOA measures the number of trials with consent divided by the total number of trials. This metric is as strict as the exact approach to the agreement. J. Cohen: Cohen. A coefficient of agreement for nominal scales. Educational and psychological measure, 20, 37-46.
accessibility. The fact that Excel is easily accessible to users should not be underestimated when behavioral analysts practice. Behavioural analysts often play a role in interdisciplinary teams, usually made up of allied health experts, domestic operators and parents. It is therefore often necessary to share data on sites. In a 2003 survey of university students, Stephens found that 90% of students had a computer at home, and 70% of students highlighted the experience of using Excel software. Given the date of the study and our observation that many associated health professionals have higher level training at the licence level, it is reasonable to assume that most members of a multidisciplinary team have access to Excel and probably have some experience in its use. Another advantage is that for people who do not yet own Excel, the costs associated with purchasing this software are significantly lower than the advanced statistical packages (Warner – Meehan, 2001).
