Consider one of the scenarios noted below. Choose one scenario (a) or (b) and determine whether a Multiple Baseline Design or Alternating Treatment Design would be an appropriate SCRD to use for this case.
Provide a rationale for your decision, grounded in the characteristics, advantages, and limitations of the design. Then, create a hypothetical set of data for the case and create a graphical representation of the data using Microsoft Excel. Save your graph as a PDF document and attach it to the discussion board. You can review the graphing tutorial resources to help you create your graph.
(a) Chen is an 8-year-old with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and has difficulty staying in his seat and completing his work. Chen’s behavior analyst suggested using a token economy to reinforce Chen’s in-seat behavior. In order to determine which token would be most effective to reinforce Chen, the analyst wanted to compare the use of Spiderman tokens (Chen’s favorite character) with a more generic tokens, like a poker chip and a happy face. How should the analyst determine which research design to use to determine the most effective token to use for Chen’s token economy?
