BEHAVIOR SAMPLING

20

n. in the study of social behavior, refers to the conduct of observation sessions during a specified time frame, with or without the subject's knowledge. For the results to be reliable, a set of observations must be conducted in multiple observation periods under similar situations, whether in natural or laboratory setting.

BEHAVIOR SAMPLING: "Like any other sampling method, the results of behavior sampling should be reliable and valid."
