Measurement of human behavior began as an extension of Lindsley’s work with rats and dogs in Skinner’s labs at Harvard University. In the early 1950s, Lindsley extended his lab work to studying human behavior including with schizophrenic and psychotic patients at the Behavior Research Lab located at Metropolitan State Hospital in Waltham, Mass. In 1965, he moved to Kansas where he and his students expanded the work yet again to develop the standard behavior chart, now the standard celeration chart (SCC) in the study of education, inner behavior, social work, and nursing. His vision was that we would have Precision Teaching, Precision Inners, Precision Nursing, Precision Social Work, and later Precision Psychotherapy and Precision Business. The one that stuck and expanded the most was Precision Teaching while some others slid to the side for several decades. During the expansion of Precision Teaching, Precision Inners, Precision Nursing and Precision Business quietly moved along thanks to a few dedicated people invested in more than education. Since then, these three fields expanded. The SCC has also now taken a small foothold in the military and in law enforcement. This presentation will include charts from the various areas that lie outside of teaching and discussions of the importance of expansion of the chart to these various areas.
By the end of this presentation the participants will be able to identify:
What is it in the beginnings of the SCC and its design that make it so desirable to measure human behavior?
What are the strengths of the SCC and of its data analyses?
How have we expanded to use this measurement tool to make it valuable in other fields?
