About this course:

This course uses a hybrid fluency model and read-and-test model.  The fluency model involves answering a series of questions, first during acquisition modules (one hour per module), and then again during fluency modules (which have a shorter time criterion).  The fluency model provides many opportunities for practice.  Each question is accompanied by a hint, to be used unless you are absolutely certain you know the answer. When hints are used properly, fluency-based courses can be errorless or near-errorless. Keep in mind that fluency-based courses employ a practice (active student responding) model that involves completing learning exercises that are similar to tests, but include hints and feedback. Concepts are learned when users consistently make correct discriminations on questions designed to teach concepts and promote generalization. ALL LEARNING MODULES NEED TO BE COMPLETED TO 100% TO MEET CRITERION. This course is recommended for BCBAs and BCaBAs.
