Chapter 88: Single-Case Multiple-Baseline Designs
Multiple-baseline designs can be used to investigate non-reversible treatment effects in studies conducted on single or small groups. They are particularly suited to management research where the objective is to evaluate the effect of a treatment or programme on the behaviour of a single or small group of subjects (companies or individuals).
- Multiple-baseline designs can be used on single cases or small groups to evaluate changes in a measured behaviour.
- Causal relationships can be demonstrated using a stringent experimental design as opposed to large-sample randomized group designs.
- Multiple-baseline designs can highlight subtle and inconsistent changes that can easily be missed in statistical analysis.
- Results are described using graphical means that are well-suited to the identification of complex relationships.
- Single-case methodology ...
