"Discrete Trial" programs include an "Errorless Teaching" option. This allows an instructor to indicate the prompt level used for each trial. Anytime a prompt is used, it will be scored as a minus (-).
Set up Errorless Teaching
Errorless Teaching is turned on with a toggle switch when creating or editing a discrete trial program. Turn it on and indicate least intrusive prompt, then save the program.
