EDUC 763 Single-Case Research Design and Analysis

The purpose of the course is to develop in-depth conceptual, methodological and practical understanding of single-case research methodologies. This course will cover issues relevant to single case experimental designs. The overall goal of this course is to explain clearly the underlying rationale and logic of single case designs along with relative advantages, disadvantages and limitations. Furthermore, the course will create a connection between single case research methodology for research purposes and the application of these methods in the practice of school psychology in an educational context. After completion of the course, students should be able to approach a potential research question and make a well-reasoned decision in choosing a single-case experimental design option and analysis strategy.
