The time and effort associated with measuring and assessing children's behavior at home can present significant practical challenges. In response, the presentations in this symposium describe innovative procedures for increasing the practicality of measuring sleep disturbances by comparing momentary-time-sampling intervals (Jin et al.), improving parental reports of child problem behavior via automated prompting mediums (e.g., test messaging; Yu et al.), and assessing behavioral function via trial-based analyses by levering web-based technologies (Hood et al.). Dr. Matthew Normand, a leading researcher in evaluating practical yet accurate measurement systems, has graciously volunteered his time to discuss the implications of the presentations.
