Time Sampling Observation

Postby GCgirl » Wed Jul 04, 2012 9:04 am

Hi, first time posting on here, seems like a really great site :)
Ive just started observing and was wanting to do a time sample observation.

If I had a child that was biting most of the day could I do a time sample observation that went all day to try and figure out when this child is biting? If I did do that I wouldn't program from it would I? I would just keep it in his file for my own reference?

Also when doing a time sample for activities would you just do it for say 30mins and observe the childs interests in that time?

Thanks :)

Another user on this site asked about time samples too. One of our member provided an explanation and samples of a time record. Here's the link: diploma-assignments/diploma-observation-types-t265.html

Hope it helps,
