Procedural integrity is very important because it is an analysis of the degree to which the independent variable is implemented as intended. Previous research on this topic has examined the use of more staff and time intensive methods to achieve acceptable levels of procedural integrity. This study examined the effect of video self-monitoring on scores of procedural integrity using a student's clinical behavior program. Three participants were used in this multiple baseline across subjects design. Baseline sessions for all three participants revealed low scores of procedural integrity. Initially staff were provided with written and verbal instructions and data showed that these instructions were ineffective at increasing the scores of procedural integrity. The treatment consisted of fifteen minute videos taken of each participant and each staff participant observed their video before the next observed session. For all three participants the treatment resulted in near 100% procedural integrity. The implications of this research are further discussed.
