Skill Tracker Pro (STP) $ During therapy/instruction, track unlimited clients and observers. Optional video. Chart/export data. Each client and skill can be configured. Data methods include cold probes for skills or mands, rate of manding, trial by trial data collection and prompt level tracking. During cold probes, skills and targets are randomized, or choose which target to probe, one at a time. – Large library of skills and targets to assign to the persons’ curriculum. Add your own skills and targets.
D.A.T.A. iOS only? $9.99 Direct Assessment Tracking Application (D.A.T.A.) Allows users to precisely measure how often and how long events occur over time. Can be used to conveniently and inconspicuously collect data on a wide range of events in a variety of settings. Fast, easy, tracks 4 behaviors https://itunes.apple.com/app/d.a.t.a/id ?mt=8
ABC Data App Family iOS only? ABC Data (basic, limited app) $4.99 https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/abc-data/id ?mt=8 ABC Logbook (advanced app) $27.99 https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/abc-logbook/id ABC Data Pro (midrange app – see next frame)
ABC Data Pro $27.99 Nine buttons are independently programmable with a label name and whether it is for counting events or measuring duration of events. Buttons can refer to individuals in a group, or an individual with 9 behaviors, or 2 individuals each with 3 behaviors and then general 3 ‘event’ buttons, etc. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/abc-data- pro/id ?mt=8 Simple set up for 1 teacher & two students
ABC Data Pro Mode 1: Behavior and/or event recording (free form): Start elapsed time display & stop at any point. Mode 2. Interval recording. Set a total observation time and then specify the length of each interval. The timer is started and a countdown mode by interval begins. Default is partial interval recording. Supports non-rigid recording systems. In interval mode, count and duration functions can be used. Places no additional task load on the observer but yields much more information from the data stream.
ABC Data Pro Mode 3. FBA. Three screens (9 programmed buttons per screen) – Antecedent, Behavior, and Consequence. – Behavior is the ‘home’ screen – To access the antecedent screen, ‘flick’ the screen right to move it into place – Then ‘flick’ left to expose the consequences screen. Like having 3 side by side screens of 9 buttons that pass under a viewing ‘window’. Simple, fast interface to conduct complex observations. data in standard CSV file (Excel compatible)
Behavior Status Android $ FREE “Donate” version is ad free and adds features - $1.99 Red-Yellow-Green (plus 2 color options) Donate version – Adds specific behavior tracking
??? Catalyst – Tracks more behaviors simultaneously (?)
??? Behavioral Observation Tool Android $3.99 Simply press the button corresponding to the behavior category you observe to add one to its tally. There is a column for the person you are observing, and one for your control subject or group. The categories are completely configurable in the options.

The total length and the time between vibrations are both configurable in the options. the results in a.csv file that can be opened in Excel or any other spreadsheet or graphing program. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=simonton.bot
??? Behavior Assessment Pro iOS only? $4.99 Answer a series of questions surrounding a particular behavior (antecedents, consequences, etc) for intensive analysis of the behavior. Questions are scripted which allows for consistent analysis No customization of questions

Recommendations: – Need expertise in Excel spreadsheet management – For web portals and storage: Get written permission (from everyone!) De-identify data (use codes, not student names) – For mobile devices: Use password protection to open device Turn on Airplane mode when recording as some devices may interrupt program with an incoming phone call, etc. De-identify data (use codes, not student names) Backup data often Enable remote data erasure feature
