Show Me The Data

So many times professionals struggle with designing the best data sheet to record progress in many different areas. Show Me The Data is an incredible resource! It is a book of sample data sheets with a CD which allows you to run them off or modify them. It is amazing!! What a needed resource. AAPC Publishing has many books and resources which look at ways of support students with Autism Spectrum Disorders. I use there resources both professionally and personally as I have a child with Aspergers. Having a valid and reliable data sheet is necessary to increase the integrity and consistency of our data collection across observers and environments. We all know how important it is to do consistent inter-rater reliability checks with staff. With increased clarity in the data collection process, our reliability rates should increase. Let me know what you think.
