Learning Outcomes
  1. Give examples of adequate and insufficient explanations of behavior.
  2. Describe of relation between science and applied behavior analysis features.
  3. Defines, records, and graphs target behavior.
  4. Distinguish between behavioral principles (reinforcement and punishment).
  5. Identify the process of reinforcement or punishment appropriate to the target behavior and prepare an implementation plan.
