Abstract

The results of a function-based multiple stimuli without replacement (MSWO) assessment and a paired-choice assessment (PC) were compared to determine whether the same stimuli options were identified. The two assessment procedures were conducted in a school setting with three participants who engaged in frequent problem behavior. An Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA) served as the therapist for all phases of the assessments. Both the PC and MSWO assessment procedures identified the same stimuli option for all three participants. Strengths and limitations of the study are discussed as well as suggestions for future research.
