The purpose of this Computer-Based Training (CBT) is to develop a training program for undergraduate researchers working within IRB Research Protocol. The CBT will focus on the administration of testing in Autism Research for lead researchers Dr. Trina Spencer and Dr. Matt Foster and their Longitudinal Virtual Study. This will allow students to administer the tests for patients fairly and consistently. Given the opportunity, students will navigate through five modules, detailing the pre-administration, the best practices, the administration, the data collection, and the dissemination of information as needed for each virtual interview. Students will have the ability to practice test administration with simulations to better understand some of the logistical challenges that come with tele-examination. The CBT will be a self-directed course that includes video tutorials, interactive simulation, and short assessment. After completing the course, undergraduate researchers will be able to administer tests to subjects fairly to ensure the best results for the LVS.
Drs. Spencer and Foster run a Longitudinal Virtual Study administering testing to participants with Autism for the purposes of comparing assessment results for children with autism across multiple measures commonly used to inform verbal behavior programming. Noting that there is a deficit in formalized assessments of language skills for children with autism spectrum disorders, the researchers seek to understand how scores compare or differ across verbal behavior assessments, the NLM,
NEPSY, and a researcher-made inference task for individuals with autism, as well as which skills can predict children’s reading and math development.
Focusing on a participant group ranging in age from 3 to 12, the researchers employ both graduate and undergraduate students to assist in the administration of tests. These students are rolling, coming into the program at different times, and often vary in major and background. As such, these students may have varying skill levels that need to be addressed in training. Currently, graduate assistants train the undergraduate assistants on a one-to-one basis. This makes training and subsequent test administration more human-based and, therefore, prone to inefficiencies and potential inaccuracies. Implementing computer-based training will help to address those inefficiencies and ensure testing administration is fair and accurate, thereby producing better results that can be used to drive additional instruction and potential new
The target audience for this CBT is undergraduate students ranging in age from 18-30. These undergraduate students are typically considered to be high performing students, whose skill level ranges, from beginner to advanced, in test administration. All undergraduate students have at least a high school reading level, and are able to
After completing this courseware, students will be able to:
1. Identify the different types of language-based assessments that research assistants will be using.
2. Explain the differences between these assessments and how the data is correlated.
3. Explain the steps of administering each assessment.
4. Practice assessment administration in a simulation.
5. Demonstrate understanding of best practices and assessment differences via test assessment.
6. Implement best practices for all current and future test administrations.
7. Develop a flexible timeline that could be determined based on the students’ needs analysis.
8. Evaluate both students and test givers’ performance.

The training options and materials like the instructions, outline, plan, tests, notes, and tests instructions should be included in the content. Another resource should also be in the interactive side like audio and video recordings of the testing sessions The questions type and nature of those questions will be included as a tutorial for the test takers and givers with the instructions or a test manual. The instructions guide how to react and respond precisely.
