The purpose of this study was to evaluate the use of behavioral skills training (BST) that included video vignettes used for modeling and rehearsal to train preservice general educators how to collect accurate antecedent-behavior-consequence (ABC) data using a structured recording format. The effectiveness of the intervention was evaluated within the context of a multiple probe single-case research design. This study also assessed generalization of collecting correct ABC data across a narrative format, given that this format is commonly used in schools. BST was effective for training preservice general educators to collect ABC data using a structured recording format and participants also generalized this skill to a narrative recording format. These findings extend the literature on BST as an intervention that can improve preservice general educators’ behavioral abilities. Practical implications and future areas of research are provided.
