ARPobservation: Tools for Simulating Direct Behavioral Observation Recording Procedures Based on Alternating Renewal Processes
Tools for simulating data generated by direct observation recording. Behavior streams are simulated based on an alternating renewal process, given specified distributions of event durations and interim times. Different procedures for recording data can then be applied to the simulated behavior streams. Functions are provided for the following recording methods: continuous duration recording, event counting, momentary time sampling, partial interval recording, and whole interval recording.
