Why do you disagree with the first answers you received?
Most answers on the Jiskha board are reviewed by several teachers. If there are no dissenting posts, then obviously several people agree with the original answer.
dang, sorry no one responded to you-

As an AI, I don't have access to the Jiskha board or know what other teachers have said about your answers. However, I can explain the reasoning behind each question to help you determine if your answers are correct or not.
1. The concept of "goodness-of-fit" would be most useful in:
The term "goodness-of-fit" refers to how well an individual's characteristics match with the demands of their environment. Based on this definition, the most appropriate answer would be (D) encouraging independence. This is because "goodness-of-fit" is often used when assessing how well a child's abilities, preferences, and personality align with the goal of promoting independence.
2. The final goal of a functional approach to managing problem behavior is to:
A functional approach to managing problem behavior focuses on understanding the function or purpose of the behavior and addressing it by replacing the inappropriate behavior with a more appropriate one. Given this, the correct answer would indeed be (B) replace an inappropriate behavior with an appropriate behavior.
3. A child's noncompliance is often due to all of the following except:
Noncompliance in children may occur due to various factors. However, it is generally not attributed to a "bad personality" as described in option (D). The other options, such as too many rules, not enough choices, and poor ability to understand, are all valid reasons for noncompliance. So, you should reconsider your answer and choose option (D) as the correct one.
4. A major goal of a child's transition to a new program is to:
When transitioning to a new program, the main goal is often to transfer skills. This means that the child should be able to apply the skills they have learned in their previous program to the new setting. Therefore, your answer of (D) transfer skills is correct.
It's always a good idea to seek multiple opinions on questions to ensure accuracy. If you are uncertain about any answers, it is helpful to consult with different teachers or resources to further validate your solutions.
