Course description

Can a visual display change lives?

All people who work in helping professions (e.g., schools, clinics, healthcare) have the opportunity to change lives. Many professionals work on helping change behaviors or acquire new skills. Such change agents rely on a scientific process: pinpointing targets, measuring the behavior or skill with informative units of measurement, placing the data on a visual display, and then analyzing the data pattern and making a decision. The scientific measurement process assumes professionals choose the correct visual display best suited for data analysis. However, many options exist for rigorously scrutinizing performance and learning data. Do skills grow and change through a linear, logarithmic, or exponential process? Which one will best inform the committed professional who wishes to change behaviors and skills as efficiently and effectively as possible? Please join us as we show you the truth about behavior change and skill growth.
