Creating an iPhone Application for Collecting Continuous ABC Data


Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis Volume 45, Number 3, ISSN 0021-8855


This paper provides an overview and task analysis for creating a continuous ABC data- collection application using Xcode on a Mac computer. Behavior analysts can program an ABC data collection system, complete with a customized list of target clients, antecedents, behaviors, and consequences to be recorded, and have the data automatically sent to an e-mail account after observations have concluded. Further suggestions are provided to customize the ABC data-collection system for individual preferences and clinical needs. (Contains 4 figures.)
