If you think you're a pro at tracking behavior, this week's episode may be a cue to reflect on just how easy it is to collect bad data. We're joined by special guest Dr. Amanda Karsten to discuss the ethics of taking good data as behavior analysts. Dr. Karsten reviews some great tips on how to go from data squirrel to data hero as well as some practical suggestions to get you using data ethically today! Plus, Diana shares a quiz to find out what kind of data you are and Jackie plugs her new ABA Christmas album. Rob sits in shock at the stark realization that he only uses data for evil. And for folks applying for continuing education credits, this episode counts towards 1 Ethics CE.
