Is the contingency effective? (The change in size Is the response the same in all three and probability of the outcome is large enough to contingencies? control behavior) Is the contingency added and planned? (Designed Does the contingency exist prior to performance to manage performance) management? If the indirect-acting contingency is to increase or Is the contingency ineffective? (The change in maintain performance, is it an analog to size and probability of the outcome is too small to avoidance? control behavior) If the indirect-acting contingency is to decrease performance, is it and analog to penalty or punishment? Is a deadline used only for analogs to avoidance Is this a natural competing contingency? If so, and not for analogs to punishment? then it is not the ineffective natural contingency
Explicit Deadline Test Linked to PM Test Delayed Outcome/Probability Test Escape Contingency TestNeed for Theoretical Contingency Test Punishment Contingency Test Direct Acting Test Inferred Test
Is the theoretical contingency related to the PM Is the avoidance deadline explicitly stated as part contingency and not to the ineffective natural of the SD? contingency? If the PM contingency is to increase or maintain Is the delay or the probability of the outcome performance, is the theoretical contingency an specified in the before and after condition? escape contingency? If the PM contingency is designed to decrease Is the theoretical, direct-acting contingency used performance, is the theoretical contingency a only when the PM contingency is indirect-acting, punishment contingency and not when the PM contingency is direct- acting? Is the theoretical contingency direct-acting? Is the theoretical contingency inferred rather than observable?
