Behavior and Sequential Analyses: Principles and Practice provides a step-by-step approach to such computer-facilitated behavior analysis research and evaluation procedures. Tom Sharpe and John Koperwas emphasize methods designed to collect and analyze both the multiple characteristics of behaviors and events of interest and the time-based or sequential characteristics of behavior and event relationships. Intended for an interdisciplinary audience, this is the only text to guide readers through development and implementation of technologically supported multiple-event, multiple measure, discrete and sequential analysis of behavior.
Developed as an introductory to intermediate level methodology text for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in social and behavioral sciences and education, Behavior and Sequential Analyses: Principles and Practice is also a unique and indispensable reference for the experienced researcher.

Tom Sharpe teaches at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas. He draws from varied experiences and settings: teaching at public and private schools, coaching, and education and social science work at Research Institutions. Trained at a leading behavior analysis program (West Virginia University), he has pursued academic work in observational methods as applied to education and the social sciences and in related computer-based tool development. He has authored over 75 refereed articles and book chapters and additionally contributes to the principles and practice of applied behavior analysis through conference and workshop presentations and consulting activities.
John Koperwas has been a practicing software developer for the past decade.

He serves clients worldwide ranging from teacher education programs to medical rehabilitation clinics to public school districts and special education and activity-based outreach centers all interested in the continuing development and use of the computer tools and related information offered through Educational Consulting, Inc.Review:
"Sharpe and Koperwas provide a methodological framework that objectifies the complexity of behavior. This book’s quantitative and multiple-event approach to data collection and analysis is essential for effective descriptions and explanations of the behavior of humans and nonhumans. Of particular note is the multidisciplinary applicability of the methodology and that the methods can be used by basic, applied, and clinical researchers. Human service providers are being increasingly pressured to take objective measures; practitioners should find much in this book to help them satisfactorily meet these demands. The authors’ sensitivity to clarity of presentation makes the book an excellent primary or supplementary text for any course in behavior methodology."(Dennis J. Delprato)
"I think the author did a very thoughtful, informed analysis and presentation of his view of research methodology."(Richard W. Malott)
