Now that you have your behavioral research question fairly well defined, how does this translate into a sampling protocol with a sound study design? Learn to distinguish between observation rules and recording rules. This is where you decide whether you will observe one focal individual at a time, or an entire focal group. The recording rules are about whether you decide to record all occurrences of one type of behavior, or use an instantaneous time-sampling technique. In this webinar, you will learn the pros and cons of various combinations of these sampling rules.
