Procedural integrity is the extent that the independent variable is implemented exactly as procedures are written. The current study examined the effects of different levels of procedural integrity on the skill acquisition of a 11 year-old girl diagnosed with autism. She was taught to wash clothes using 100% procedural integrity and to dry clothes at 50% procedural integrity. The task taught in the 50% procedural integrity condition took more trials to master than the task taught at 100% procedural integrity and produced more errors. These findings are consistent with previous studies suggesting that lower levels of procedural integrity will result in more trials to mastery and more errors.
