  • Step 7.Enter data for second phase. Note: data is not entered into same column as Baseline data

  • Step 8.Do exactly as you did in Step 2 except you must choose the line graph style indicated.Choose This Line Graph Style OnlyStep 9.Do exactly as you did in steps 4 and 5.

  • Step 10. Add a Phase Linea. Click on the line shapeb. Draw the phase line on the graph

  • Step 11. Add Phase Labelsa. Click on the text Boxb. Align the text box and type the phase label

  • Practice Graph #1 Time = consecutive school days. Behavior = number of errors on a daily 10 word spelling test. Baseline = no intervention. Intervention = mental rehearsal prior to taking the test.

  • ABAB

  • Practice Graph #2 Time = consecutive school days. Behavior = Spontaneous Utterances during a 30 minute Free Play Time. Baseline = no intervention. Intervention 1 = Verbal Praise. Intervention 2 = Physical Touching + Verbal Praise
