Abstract:
This paper describes the results of attempts to teach behavlour analysis research skills to second-year and third-year university students. The second-year data indicate that a series of five, 2-hour laboratory classes is insufficient to bring students to the point where they can design and execute a simple behavlour
analysis experiment. The third year data indicate that a series of ten, 1-hour workshops results in a high proportion of students acquiring the skills necessary to design and execute an adequate behavlour analysis experiment. The third year data raise the possibility of teachers Joining New Zealand's extremely small educational research establishment.
