Editorial Reviews


"...Bakeman and Quera's text is a useful reference guide for how to apply sequential analysis, with several examples of its actual use. It should be a useful guide to those sequential analysis researchers already applying such methods to their work but would have benefited from more discussion of when to apply such methods (to alert nonusers to its potential applicability to their work)..."
--Dr. David P. Nalbone, Purdue University Calumet, PsycCRITIQUES

Book Description

This book provides a thorough grounding in observational methods along with considerable practical advice. Behavioral scientists use observational methods to study relatively natural, spontaneous behavior as it unfolds in time. The book is rich with examples of coding methods and different approaches to sequential analysis, including both statistical and graphical means. This book should appeal to students of behavior - from relative novices to advanced researchers - who want to understand systematic observation better.

This book was much needed. It does a good job of explaining all that is needed to run the analysis, even for novices.
