Direct Observation Sample Clauses

Direct Observation. Evaluations shall be made based primarily 10 upon the direct observation and knowledge of the evaluator. The evaluation 11 is to be completed by the supervisor who is responsible for the work of the 12 employee; however, the responsibility shall be shared with the 13 Superintendent or his/her designee. Management maintains the right to 14 evaluate based on multiple unscheduled observations. 15 16 PARAPROFESSIONALS: An evaluation shall not be completed unless 17 there has been at least one direct observation. A date and approximate time 18 of at least one direct observation will be noted on the evaluation. 19
Direct Observation. Actual observation of the work being performed. This procedure is very costly and is not based in the principles of performance based service Contracting. However, this does provide for analysis of processes which may lead to reduced QA functions in the future once confidence is gained in the Contractor’s performance.
Direct Observation. An evaluation shall not be completed unless it is based on a direct observation.
Direct Observation. The ten minute long free play sessions of children with ASD were video recorded in an intervention room. The child was made to sit in the middle of the toys, arranged in a semi-circular fashion and allowed to play. This arrangement was chosen as it gives a visual cue as well as easy access to the toys. The parents were allowed to sit either on the same line or behind the child for moral support. They were instructed from giving direction or demonstrating particular play behaviour and asked to respond naturally if their child approached them during recording. Videotaping was continuous, unless the child wandered out of the view of the camera or became disengaged with the objects for longer than 60 seconds. Videotaping was resumed when the child once again became engaged with the toys. Throughout this process, the examiner tried to remain as unobtrusive as possible. Informant Rating Scale: An interview with the mothers of children with ASD on the 3 questions was carried out. Their responses were recorded in a 5 point Likert scale, where a score of ‘0’ indicated the absence of behaviour and a score’4’ was given if the behaviour was present for more than 75% of time. The questions were 1) Does your child explore or manipulate toys by self? 2) Does your child know how to play with the toy object defined by its function such as a ball is to throw, and a car is to ride? 3) Does your child play by pretending an object for a real object such as imagining a rectangular block as phone and play? Scoring The play behaviours of children with ASD were analysed on direct observation following the play coding scheme developed by Libby, Powell, Xxxxxx and Jordan, 1998. ELAN software was employed for analyzing the video recordings. The current study particularly focused on the occurrences of three types of play behaviour, Exploratory, Functional and Symbolic play behaviour respectively. The rating scale was used for scoring the frequency of three types of play behaviour namely Exploratory, Functional and Symbolic play behaviour. Inter-rater Reliability Measures Three experienced Speech language pathologists involved in the early intervention of children with ASD participated for the inter-rater reliability measures on play behaviours. Inter-rater agreement for classification of play behaviour was calculated using Kappa Coefficient on all of the 12 videos. The scores for the categorization of play behaviour ranged from 0.947 to 0.997. These obtained scores represent excellent...
