This course will introduce you to single- case research design (SCRD), an applied research approach used in applied behavior analysis (ABA) to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions with individuals. The term single- case research design is also referred to as single-subject research design (SSRD) in the behavioral sciences. The basic premise of this quantitative experimental approach is that research subjects serve as their own control. In this course, you will learn how to select from basic SCRD to determine the effectiveness of an intervention in applied settings (., real-world scenario). You will also be introduced to the legal, ethical, and social validity aspects as they relate to the design and evaluation of an intervention through SCRD.
