  • Description
  • Details

This is one of very few books focusing exclusively on different methods for analyzing data from single case designs. This accessible yet in-depth introduction will serve as a highly practical resource for doctoral students and researchers alike.

Single system, or single case, design studies are a convenient method for evaluating practice, allowing professionals to track clients' response to treatment and change over time. They also allow researchers to gather data where it might be difficult to conduct a study involving treatment and control groups; in a school setting, or a community mental health agency, for example, random assignment may be impossible, whereas individual student or client progress across time can be more easily monitored.

This pocket guide reviews a wide range of techniques for analyzing single system design data, including visual analysis methods, graphical methods, and statistical methods. From basic visual observation to complex ARIMA statistical models for use with interrupted time series designs, numerous data analysis methods are described and illustrated in this unique and handy book. The author frankly describes limitations and strengths of the data analysis methods so that readers can select an appropriate method and use the results responsibly in order to improve practice and client well-being.
