Rediscover Your Roots: Putting the Analysis Back in Behavior Analysis. Part 2: Discrepancy Analysis – Group

CEUs: 2 Learning Type 2 BACB®
Presenter(s): Megan Miller, PhD, BCBA-D, LBA


This presentation continues the discussion relating to analyzing barriers to learning in order to promote effective skill acquisition for learners. Discrepancy analysis is defined and the presenter provides examples of conducting a discrepancy analysis to pinpoint potential barriers and develop programming relating to the barriers. A checklist for conducting discrepancy analyses is provided for individuals to use with their own learners. The materials in this course also provide an excellent resource for training others on one example of ANALYZING learner performance instead of following a cookbook procedural approach.

Learning Objectives. Participants will be able to:

  • Define discrepancy analysis
  • Explain why discrepancy analysis is a critical aspect in providing effective behavior analytic services
  • Conduct a discrepancy analysis with their learners to improve progress in skill acquisition programs
  • Describe considerations that need to be made between can’t do and won’t do skill performances
  • Describe what observations should be conducted when planning for addressing barriers to learning
  • Explain how to tie observations and data collection back to the science of behavior analysis to determine the root problem and develop intervention
