Periodic Celeration Line

Return to Home Page Six Celerations Menu Previous celeration | Next celeration



You draw a Periodic celeration through the frequencies that span a regular, equal period of time. Periodic celerations show the trends during each regular calendar period. When the period ends, draw a celeration line through its frequencies. A Periodic celeration, then, typically consists of several celeration lines.

A Periodic celeration may prove useful for administrative purposes.

In the drawing above, a black vertical line demarcates each new calendar period. Each calendar period in the drawing above runs 5 weeks. One can use any regular calendar period. Some charts show 9-week school terms, quarters, months, and so on. For business purposes, celerations across quarterly time periods may prove most useful.



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.
