Event and time sampling

This film shows examples of event and time sampling techniques. Two children are filmed separately during their afternoon session at nursery school. There is a very quiet girl (3 years 9 months) and a boy (3 years 3 months) who seems often to be at the center of disruptions. This material is used to demonstrate the two observational techniques and is to be used with the accompanying notes. A time and an event sample observation is shown for each child. For the time sample, a ten second clip is shown on the screen (taken every ten minutes over a two hour period) giving 12 ten second sequences. For the event sample, for the girl, every interaction where she was spoken to or spoke herself is shown. For the boy every interaction where he is involved in a disruption is shown. This video includes the following scenarios: Time sample observation: girl, Event sample observation: girl, Time sample observation: boy, Event sample obsevation: boy.
