dc.description.abstract Learning the knowledge and procedures of the Assessment of Basic Learning Abilities (ABLA) is a major practical priority for direct-care service providers who work with individuals with intellectual disabilities (IDs) and autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). The present study compared the effects of two training conditions involving a self-instructional manual (SIM) alone and its combination with a Web-based computer-aided personalized system of instruction (WebCAPSI) program (SIM plus WebCAPSI) on teaching knowledge and implementation of the ABLA to university students. A multiple-baseline design across training conditions was used. The results indicate that the SIM combined with passing unit tests delivered via WebCAPSI was beneficial for knowledge acquisition while viewing demonstration videos was beneficial for conducting the ABLA. The findings suggest that a combination of a SIM combined with unit tests delivered via WebCAPSI and videos provides an effective approach to teach both knowledge and application of behavioural procedures to potential knowledge users. en_US
