This study evaluates the effectiveness of a modified pyramidal training procedure.
The participants in this training procedure were special education program coordinators,
who were taught to conduct trial-based functional analyses and then provided support to special education teachers who were taught to conduct trial-based functional analyses and to calculate, graph, and analyze data.
After training, the teachers conducted the trial-based functional analysis with over 85% accuracy and demonstrated criterion performance analyzing and graphing data.
Accuracy was maintained during in-situ generalization probes conducted with two of the teachers.
