Abstract

Visual inspection methodology is rarely discussed in the behavior-analytic research despite the fact it is the primary means of data analysis in the field. The current study evaluated the effects of a traditional lecture on visual inspection and the Conservative Dual Criterion (CDC) inspection aid on the visual inspection performance of six university students. The traditional lecture reliably had no impact on visual inspection of AB-design graphs whereas the CDC method substantially improved the performance of all participants.
