Development of Software for Data Collection & Analysis
Consultations with investigators and development of original software designed for data collection and analysis, while supporting existing software.
Software such as MOOSES (Multi-Option Observation System for Experimental Studies), was developed to easily collect and analyze data from any type of real time event. It supports a widespread, multi-dimensional analysis of data, while allowing it to be collected via PC, laptop, handheld or Pocket PC. In addition, the software is fully compatible with ProcoderDV(see below) for collecting data from digital audio and video files. Data collected by this tool allows researchers to make accurate assessments in real time observation systems.

Procoder for Digital Video (ProcoderDV) was developed to facilitate the collection of different forms of observational data from digital media files. It allows researchers to more easily observe and document any digital video or audio files that contain events of interest. Data files can be of two general types: event files or transcription files, which can be exported into MOOSES or SALT format, or can be read directly by many popular statistical or spreadsheet programs. In conjunction with ProcoderDV, code files can be used to guide the coder in marking events for later quantification and analysis.

Interval Manager (INTMAN) is a computer-assisted alternative to traditional paper and pencil methods for collecting observational data that is sampled using fixed time intervals. INTMAN data collection software is compatible with Pocket PC handheld computers and includes a desktop application for Microsoft Windows that is used for data analysis. The standard analysis options include modified frequencies, percent of intervals, conditional probabilities, and Kappa agreement matrices and values.
