Textbook Problem

Identity and describe the component-analysis design and describe the circumstances in which it is used.

To determine

The research design component analysis and describe the circumstances in which it is used.

Explanation

The special points of component analysis are as follows:

  1. In component analysis, experimenters try to find out the active components of the treatment package that influence the behavior of the dependent variable.
  2. These designs are all single subject experimental designs; the study includes many independent variables and only one subject of dependent variable.
  3. This research design is more useful in behavioral analysis. This technique helps to identify the components that do not cause a change in the behavior. Such ineffective components may be removed from the package.
  4. Like this the method of component analysis enhances the efficiency and social validity of the treatment package.
  5. This helps in the generalization of the treatment package. It helps identify and hence focus only on the key components.
  6. Thus the subject related staff is trained only for the key components to modulate the behavior accordingly.
  7. This method helps to know the relative contribution of the different components in a treatment package.
  8. There are two methods of implementing component analysis: drop out analysis and add in analysis. In drop out method the components are dropped out one by one. Whereas in add in analysis, the components are individually analyzed first and then added on one by one to format group of components...
