Workshop #W31
CE Offered: BACB
Overview of Standard Celeration Charting
Friday, May 27, 2005
6:00 PM–9:00 PM
Williford A (3rd floor)
Area: PRA; Domain: Applied Research
CE Instructor: Michael Fabrizio, M.A.
CLAY M. STARLIN (University of Oregon), ABIGAIL B. CALKIN (Calkin Learning Center), MICHAEL FABRIZIO (Fabrizio/Moors Consulting), HENRY S. PENNYPACKER (University of Florida), JESUS ROSALES-RUIZ (University of North Texas)
Description: This workshop will teach participants to read and chart human performance on the Standard Celeration Chart (SCC). Participants will learn: important features of the chart, the rationale for monitoring performance frequencies, standard SCC conventions, how to chart performance across varying lengths of counting time, and how to analyze performance on the chart to assist in making data-based decisions. The presenters will draw from long and varied histories of success using the SCC in a range of setting to illustrate key concept taught in the workshop. Examples from the areas of university teaching, intervention with children with autism, educational intervention with students with learning disabilities, general public school education, and the monitoring of private events will be used. All participants will receive a copy of all materials used in the workshop including a CD-ROM containing additional copies of the presentation materials, forms, example videos, and an animation-based tutorial.
Learning Objectives: At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to: - Read human performance data charted on all versions of the SCC. - Chart human performance data charted on all versions of the SCC. - Describe data on the SCC in terms of its frequency (level), celeration (trend), and bounce (variability). - Describe performance management systems helpful in maintaining consistent use of the SCC in clinical and educational settings.
Activities: Applying principles derived from behavior analysis of well-designed instruction, our world-class group of workshop presenters will use a range of activities to ensure participants learn the key skills targeted in the objectives. Participants will engage in choral responding and paced practice, timed practice on key concepts and skills, and both small and large group discussion.
Audience: Anyone seeking an introduction (or refresher!) to Standard Celeration Charting, including those persons interested in using the SCC to improve their own teaching or clinical practice, as well as individuals planning to take the BACB examination.
