              • Consecutive Data Points: advancement based on data points collected in a row (potential to master a goal in a single day) – (E.g. Monday data point(s) 1, 2, & 3)
              • Average of Consecutive Data Points: advancement based on average data points collected (potential to master a goal in a single day) – (E.g. Aggregation of Monday data point(s) 1, 2, & 3)
            • Consecutive Error Responses: number of failed trials in a row (within the data point) – (E.g. 5 trials and 3 failed trials in a row to regress)
                • Regression: Generalization and Maintenance to Intervention (return to prompts)
              • Advancement: Baseline to Intervention (provide prompts)
                • May also utilize 1 consecutive data point – (E.g. 1 data point less than 80% to advance to intervention phases)
      • Enter the Frame Value: the number of data points or days specified in the frame type – (E.g. 3 days with data collected)

      • Auto-Add phase change lines – Auto-add phase change lines. Displays phase name on Graph and session
        • Provide phase label on session – (E.g. Mass trial, 1 distractor, etc)
        • Hold Goal: the branch will be put on hold if the criteria is met (supervisors will place the goal back on the data sheet when data has been reviewed)
        • Require two providers: advancement criterion required from two provider accounts
      • Mark as goal mastered: this will automatically mark the goal as “Met” when criteria is achieved
