1- Create a short scenario that includes a problem behavior in the classroom setting. After you have chosen a problem behavior, create an operational definition.
2. Choose the best type of measurement and explain how this data will be collected. Provide a rationale for why this is the best measurement for this behavior.
3. Describe the Antecedent, Behavior, and Consequence of your scenario as well as the hypothesized function.
4. What is the next step in the planning of changing this behavior?
5. Complete your discussion this week by responding to multiple peer posts.
