Experimental Analysis of Behavior EDF6227 (45 semester hours). Participants learn foundational knowledge and concepts of experimental analysis of behavior to include demonstrating the operations of principles of behavior in the context of basic research in multiple areas of investigation such as schedules of reinforcement, stimulus control, conditioned reinforcement choice, and establishing/motivational operations while adhering to management, supervision, and ethical and professional issues relevant to experimental research. The content is based on specific topics via the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) Fourth Edition Task List, as well as basic experimental principles of operant conditioning. This course serves as either an alternative for EDF 7944 in a series of six courses that prepares students to apply for the Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) exam or as an additional elective for degree seeking or interested students that meet the pre-requisites. This course earns 3 graduate credits and grades will be posted in UWF’s Banner System in order to show on an official transcript.
