A Small n design has many observations on a single case or a few subjects. 4. When separate groups of subjects receive different levels of the independent variable, this is referred to as Between Subject design. 5. When all subjects receive all levels of the independent variable, this is referred to as Within Subject design. 6. When the researcher measures a behavior that needs to be changed and then applies therapy and measures the behavior again, this is referred to as AB design. 7. When the researcher measures a behavior that needs to be changed, applies therapy and measures the behavior again, and then removes the treatment and measures the behavior again, this is referred to as ABA design. 8. When the criterion outcome changes over time this is referred to as Changing Criterion design. 9. When measuring several behaviors or several people with baseline periods of varying lengths and an independent variable occurs, this is referred to as a Multiple Baseline design. 10. When subjects are not randomly assigned and not all variables are under the control of the presenter, this is referred to as Quasi-Experimental design.
A. Multiple Baseline
B. Small n
G. Between Subject
I. Changing Criterion J. Within Subject
