This study assessed the effects of the use of a task analysis on the reliability of visual inspection for naïve participants. Three undergraduate students in a Special Education program took part in the study. Participants chose responses to graphs displaying functional analysis results in a multielement format, without the task analysis, and then with the task analysis. Only one out of three participants showed an increase in reliability with the use of the task analysis. However, further analyses showed that changes in participant reliability for certain functions appeared to be related to the use of the task analysis.
