BOOM Assessment



(Behavioral Observation Based On Organic Methodology)

Behavioral observation is a widely used method of behavioral assessment. Unlike other methods of behavioral assessment, most of which rely on people's perceptions of behavior, BOOM assessment involves watching and recording the behavior of a person in typical simulated environment. BOOM observations are more objective than of perceptions. BOOM behavioral observation provides quantitative and objective data that can be used to determine current levels of behavior, to set goals for behavioral improvement.

Depending on the nature of the behaviors to be assessed, BOOM observers may use any one or a combination of several characteristics related to the behavior. The most common characteristic observed is frequency, or how often a behavior occurs. Other characteristics include magnitude (how intense a behavior is) and duration (how long a behavior lasts). Regardless of which characteristic is observed, it is important to measure that characteristic consistently throughout the behavioral intervention process.
