Research and Program Evaluation
Quantitative research studies primarily involve the collection, analysis, and interpretation of
numeric data, with goals that include: to describe, to explain, and to predict phenomena. One
quantitative research design is a time series design.
1. Create a reflection report explaining the principles of time series (e.g., purpose, phases).
2. Next, compare and contrast two models (e.g., ABA, multiple-baseline) keeping in mind the
following areas:
Overview of the model

Considerations or special procedures of the model

Advantages and disadvantages of the model

3. Discuss unique characteristics of time series design as opposed to experimental designs and
predictive designs.
4. Provide an example of a potential research study using a time-series design from which the
results might inform your counseling practices.
