When you have multiple measures but your target is not graphing correctly, there are a few areas to check:
1. Affects outcome box
Be sure that the "Affects outcome" box is selected for all measures that you want to be included in the graph. Ensure the box is unchecked for measures that are not included in the graph.
Note: You can only graph one type of instrument on a single graph. For example, if you created a program for following two-step instructions and wanted to have a pass/fail measure for each instruction given, both measures could be included on one graph because they are both the same instrument type (pass/fail).
However, if you also wanted to track the number of off-task behaviors with an integer instrument in the same target, you would need to uncheck the "Affects outcome" box for this measure because you cannot graph both integer and pass/fail measures simultaneously.
2. Opportunity Score
You will also want to check the Opportunity Outcome section and ensure this section set up correctly. The Opportunity Score section will tell the system how to combine all measures into one opportunity score.
If you leave the "Opp. Score" in automatic, it will average the measure scores together; however, if you change to "Measure Scores" you can select from average, sum, minimum, and maximum.
3. Session Outcome:
You will also want to ensure that the Session Score is set up correctly. The Session Score section allows you to specify how you would like to combine all opportunities in the session into one data point (this is what will be graphed). You can choose between "Opportunity Success Rate" and "Opportunity Scores"
Opportunity Success Rate: This option will calculate the percent of opportunities that were successful as set up in your Opportunity Outcome section (i.e., successful opportunities/total opportunities X 100).
Opportunity Scores: This option will allow you to choose from average, sum, minimum, and maximum. For example, if you selected "Sum" in this option, the graph for that session would be all measure scores added together.
It should be noted that after you change your program to graph correctly, the graphs will NOT automatically update to the new settings.
To manually change these you will need to delete the original data (data that were following the old rules) and add data back by clicking on "Add unexercised targets".
