For this module’s course project component, you will develop a second variation of the multiple baseline design of your single-subject study for your Course Project: Assessment of Student Learning: Utilizing Single-Subject Design Assignment.
· Review the O’Neill, R.E., et. al. (2011) course text reading for this module to gather insights and examples to support your multiple baseline design variation for this module’s course project component.
· Consider the topic, variables, and designs you have developed and submitted to your Instructor thus far to inform this Assignment.
Compose a 2–3 page overview of your Multiple Baseline Design, Variation 2 for your single-subject study.
Note: See the Course Project instructions and rubric in Module 6 for more details regarding the requirements of this Assignment.
