Another blog post from my Chartlytics
Effectively monitoring behavior means always understanding the current condition in effect. A condition refers to the presence or absence of an intervention during a certain phase or period of time. For example, a performer receiving no intervention has data appearing in a condition called “baseline.”
When someone institutes an intervention, a condition change line shows the intervention along with the name of the intervention. A performer, for instance, may receive a reward after meeting her daily frequency aim (goal) each day. Her new condition has a name called “Daily reward.” A condition change line visually signals the advent of a new condition.
A chart reader analyzes the effect of an intervention by inspecting the data appearing after the condition change line. Chartlytics shows a condition change line with a red line ending with a small 90 degree line to the right (and the name of the condition).
