    This practical book shows how both Excel® and SPSS® can be used for analyzing data for human service evaluation. Assuming no prior instruction for statistics, the text utilizes a “learn by doing” approach: readers see the use of statistics demonstrated and then are encouraged to apply their own data to statistical analysis with step-by-step guidance. • Single system designs • Within-subject comparison • Idiographic research • N of one trial. SSRD Workshop 5 SSRD Defined SSRD involves studying a single individual or system by taking repeated measurements of 1 or more dependent variables and systematically applying & sometimes.

    Multiple-baseline designs do not require the intervention to be withdrawn. Instead, each subject’s own data are compared between intervention and nonintervention behaviors, resulting in each subject acting as his or her own control (Kazdin, ). An added benefit of this design, and all single-case designs, is the immediacy of the data.   The feasibility of adopting the use of single-system designs for evaluating practice has become an important topic in the field of social work. This study addresses this issue by examining the extent to which behavior therapists, who espouse empirical methods as part of their practice, use various single-system designs in their practice.

    Is design just for products, buildings and services: an introduction to social design. How social design can help you become mindful of your role in society, to design for good and to bring about. Summary. 1. In general, the results of single-case designs, in particular, of time-series designs, cannot be causally interpreted since potentially infinitely many alternative explanations exist due to the lack of is obvious because single-case designs are special cases of repeated-measures designs. 2. The designs by Edgington are an exception.

Introduction. Single-system designs (SSDs), otherwise known as single-subject, single-case, or N-of-1 designs, are research formats that permit uncontrolled program evaluation and controlled experiments with only one subject, one group, or one system. All SSDs involve intensive study of the individual subject or system through repeated measures over time.

The purpose of this text is to introduce single-case design methodology to clinical social workers, students, and field supervisors. Single-system designs (SSDs) are a family of user-friendly empirical procedures that can be used to help professionals to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the services they provide to clients and to guide practice.

SSDs can be used to evaluate interventions based on any theory or approach. Repeated measurement of the target(s) of intervention is an intrinsic and key element of SSDs. Research design for social work and the human services / by Jeane W.

Updated exemplars should make them. The phases of a single-subject design are almost always summarized on a graph. Graphing the data facilitates monitoring and evaluating the impact of the intervention. The y axis is used to represent the scores of the dependent variable, whereas the x axis represents a unit of time, such as an hour, a day, a week, or a month.

The aim of social work research is to build the social work knowledge base in order to solve practical problems in social work practice or social policy. Investigating phenomena in accordance with the scientific method requires maximal adherence to empirical principles, such as basing conclusions on observations that have been gathered in a.

Geismar, who continues to write after retiring from Rutgers in Following this honorary introduction, the book presents discussions of the evolution of SSDs over the past decade. The primary scientific methods used by social workers to evaluate their practice outcomes involve single-system designs (see Bloom, Fischer, & Orme, ) and simple group research designs (see.

Because single-system designs oblige practitioners to be more specific in their practice, such as operationally defining targets of intervention, etc., a new set of ethical issues are raised that require reconsidering every aspect of the scientific practitioner's relationship to the client.

This essay is intended to initiate such a reconsideration. Quality social services The provision of quality social services forms a vital component of coordinated multi-sectoral responses for women and girls subject to violence.
