A single case design in which two or more interventions alternate systematically.

A within-subject or intensive experimental design consisting of alternating presentations of two or more independent variable arrangements, each of which is correlated with a distinctive stimulus. The differential effects then are observed by comparing performance under each of the

An experimental design in which the replications involve presenting the different values of the independent variable in an alternating sequence under the same general conditions or in the same experimental phase.
