Overall Celeration Line

Return to Home Page Six Celerations Menu Next Celeration



You draw an Overall celeration line through all of the frequencies on a chart. The Overall celeration describes all of the frequencies charted, regardless of cycles, trends, periods, or event manipulations.

An Overall celeration runs as a single line of best fit through all of the frequencies. Thus, an Overall celeration will miss local trends, changes in events, regular calendar periods of time, and what has happened most recently.

In the drawing above, the Overall celeration shows a slight upward trend over time.



The chart shown above represents a likeness only of a standard celeration chart. The chart shown above is also a "stylized" chart. That means that I constructed it for teaching and illustrative purposes only. It does not show real data. The frequency dots are larger, proportionately, and the celeration lines range through more chart cycles, than one typically finds.

Dr. Ogden R. Lindsley invented the Standard Celeration Chart, founded Behavior Research Company, and has been the main proponent and developer of both Precision Teaching and standard celeration charting.

Actual Standard Celeration Charts can be purchased from the Behavior Research Company, Box 3351, Kansas City, KS 66103. FAX: 913 362-5900.
