Description

The Changing Criterion Design (CCD) is a technique that helps teachers create an intervention for students exhibiting academic or behavioral difficulties. By finding a baseline for the student‘s behavior, incentives can be used to change the occurrence of the target behavior. CCD has been used with a wide variety of populations for a wide variety of behaviors making it a useful intervention tool for school use. Our study is designed to look at the use and perceived practicality of CCD interventions in the school setting. Practicing school psychologists were asked to respond to a survey related to their training in the CCD, their use of the CCD within schools, and their opinions about the efficiency of the CCD for school use. Descriptive and correlational analyses were conducted to evaluate the actual use and perceived utility of the CCD as an intervention tool within schools. Additional findings will be discussed.
