Video Modeling Study

Using Video Modeling to Teach Adults Empirically Derived Assessment and Intervention Procedures

Using Video Modeling to Teach Adults Evidence-based Assessment and Intervention Procedures is a research study to learn how to use technology to teach assessment and intervention skills used by adults who work with individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  ​We also want to learn what adults like and do not like about this training. We will use this information to improve training experiences and outcomes.

IRB# 82-23-EP 

This research study's purpose is to learn how video modeling can be used to teach assessment and intervention skills. You will do the following if you participate.

  1. You will work with the research team to show your skills before training.
  2. You will be trained the skills using video modeling. You will watch videos and respond to questions. You will be told which skills you did correctly and what you need to do differently.
  3. You will show the skills you learned after being trained.
  4. You will tell us what you liked and did not like about the training.

Your participation in this study will help us to know whether our training works and how to make the training better.

You will come to the Psychology Department at the Munroe-Meyer Institute twice during this study. Each visit will last from 60 to 90 minutes.

There is a risk of loss of your confidentiality should our records be broken into.

You can choose not to take part in this study and experience training in other ways (e.g., online training).
