Importance of Data

Baseline data is a measurement that is collected prior to intervention or teaching starts. It can be collected through various measures including percent accuracy, frequency, duration, rate, and intervals. Baseline data is important to ABA because it allows the team to compare the behavior before and after implementation of the behavior plan to determine if the interventions are working. There are many different ways in which baseline data can be collected. For example, if a child is learning how to brush their teeth, we could measure ...

  • how long do they brush their teeth for

  • how long is the tap water on

  • how many times do they brush their teeth a day

Each of these different data components will be recorded using different methods and will be graphed. Once the data is graphed, we can easily compare and analyze patterns in the graphs and if the results are not positive we can try applying new programs for the child to learn.
