The National Center for Special Education Research (NCSER) at the Institute of Education Sciences announces its 4th Summer Research Training Institute on Single-Case Intervention Research Design and Analysis. The Training Institute is intended to increase the capacity of the nation’s education researchers to conduct methodologically rigorous single-case intervention studies.
The course will enable participants to:
- Describe the logic and principles underlying scientifically credible single-case intervention research and their advantages for making causal inferences about intervention effects.
- Understand the situations and conditions for which single-case intervention research is applicable.
- Familiarize themselves with both traditional single-case designs and recent advances that improve the designs’ scientific credibility.
- Acquire knowledge about both visual and statistical techniques for analyzing (and aggregating) the data from single-case intervention investigations.
- Recognize the strengths, limitations, and yet-to-be resolved issues associated with single-case intervention research.
- Understand how to transition from single-case designs to traditional “group” designs, and how single-case research can complement group designs.
- Participate in small-group projects to collectively develop research proposals for conducting a scientifically credible single-case intervention investigation.
