    Good question. They might. I think that's a good question to ask the group. It might depend on if people have their own means or if people just have this stuff floating around their computer and want to make it more structured. In the latter case, I'd say that would be a great idea.

    I'm putting my powerpoint presentation into a series of short video tutorials
    which I'll host on the site
    so it might be nice to keep a good deal of the content in one spot

    @miyamot0
    side note: did you ever use any youtube tutorials to learn programming?
    i used a ton way back when, kinda considering make 1-2 for behavior analysis type stuff (e.g., charting, templating, etc.)
    Brent Kaplan
    @brentkaplan
    I think that's a great idea. The short video tutorials thing is really nice. I'd do it but I don't know if I'll have the time to make them before ABAI lol. At the very least, depending on how much I deviate from the presentation, I could make my presentation into a video (no audio, just a slideshow).

    I was just planning to do it for mine for now, only as a test

    @brentkaplan
    Na, not really. Only recently did I watch some of Hadley Wickham's videos. Super informative. That too would be a great idea. Are you thinking kind of like videos for first time behavior analysts?

    I think video Tut's for certain complex tasks
    App Dev and programming will be one, but setting up plots and basic spreadsheet operations are worthwhile too
    Brent Kaplan
    @brentkaplan
    Right. I was thinking like how to set up in excel a template for multiple baseline designs and stuff
    Shawn Gilroy
    @miyamot0
    yeah
    I do a short 2-3 class spread for excel in the clinical aba program here
    I think I might just turn that into a series of 5-10 minute youtube videos
    Brent Kaplan
    @brentkaplan
    I feel like you'd get so much foot traffic with that. Especially if it was posted to the Students of ABA group on Facebook or something.

    I'm going to see how the app one goes, if its not that much work (and I can re-use with lectures) I may commit to 2-3 more

    @miyamot0
    I launched an initial batch of training videos
    this is going to be a bigger project than i thought, but i think im committed to it now
    under tutorials
    pretty sure that's going to be a deliverable for my presentation, since it'll be a spoon-fed tutorial for making something clinically-relevant with mobile technology

    @brentkaplan
    Just checked it out.
    Dude. Looks awesome!
    Shawn Gilroy
    @miyamot0
    Its actually not as bad as I thought once the software is set up
    Brent Kaplan
    @brentkaplan
    I'd imagine that a big part is making the tutorial. I'd f it up several times for sure.
    Shawn Gilroy
    @miyamot0
    two of the videos had to get redone because of cat issues
    haha

    hey did we ever settle on a time to talk?
    did we say this week or the next?
    Brent Kaplan
    @brentkaplan
    I think we said May 1st 3pm est

    Hi there. Great tutorials! I have a specific question about the small n stats online tutorials for single-case charting. Its in regard to #019: subplots and multiple baselines 2. Its about creating a multiple baseline by moving all the charts into a single chart in a new tab (as was done in this tutorial). I have a load of data points so when I try to put all the charts together into a single chart, all the data points squash up together and it gets really messy. I cant widen the boarder of the original first chart that all the other charts go in to. Are there any solutions or alternatives that you could suggest?
    Shawn Gilroy
    @miyamot0
    Hi Stephen, could you possibly email the chart?
    Excel is very particular, especially when nesting plots into other plots
    Stephen Buckley
    @StephenBBuckley_twitter
    Sure, no problem. Where can I email it to?
    Shawn Gilroy
    @miyamot0
    I can give a look in the morning tomorrow
    Stephen Buckley
    @StephenBBuckley_twitter
    Great thank you! I'll email it from my tcd address: buckles3@tcd.ie

    @miyamot0
    hey steve, got your chart
    can you send one with some fake data in it? I understand there's confidentiality issues if you send the actual data, but if you can send something random but similar it would be easier to replicate what youre seeing

    Hi Shawn and Brent,
    I’m using the Windows version 1.8.2 Discounting Model Selector with MCQ data for 85 participants, entering data for small, medium and large reward magnitudes separately. I’ve entered the 9 delays for each reward magnitude in ascending order in cells A1:I1 (Delay Series). For the Value Series, participants’ monetary choices corresponding to the delays are entered in cells A2:I86 (1 participant/row). I’ve entered the maximum reward amount for each magnitude as the maximum value (i.e., small=35, medium=60, large=85). If I’m reading the output correctly, the Noise model is the most probable model listed for all or nearly all participants for each of the reward magnitudes. As a quick check, I used the Web Discounting Model Selector for several participants and am getting the same results (though noise model was not included as a probable model). I’m surprised by these results because I had previously computed k using the Kaplan et al. auto scorer and also the Gray et al. scoring syntax. Both indicated very high consistency among the responses selected. I want to make sure that I’m using the Discount Model Selector correctly, and would appreciate any insight or advice you might have. Thanks!

    @miyamot0
    hi @cbphill3
    just to note, the MCQ responses are NOT interchangeable with indifference points
    the DMS is made for indifference points (i.e., x, y)
    Shawn Gilroy
    @miyamot0
    if you have SSR/LLR comparisons and do not wish to defer to Kirby scoring (a la Brent’s template), you could potentially use Mike Young’s logistic regression method to model delay and reward sensitivity that way
    Brent Kaplan
    @brentkaplan
    Yup, I agree with Shawn. Id probably recommend reporting standard Kirby ks and supplement with the logistic approach. Should give you similar overall results.
    cbphill3
    @cbphill3
    Got it. Thanks to you both. I'm pretty new to this area of research and am trying to get up to speed on the basics. I've actually analyzed all of the data using Kirby's k, but wanted to make sure I hadn't missed something.
    I really appreciate your advice!
