HI, I;m Brian with ericksontutoring.blogspot.com. Today we're going to discuss sampling intervals. A sampling interval is simply the amount of time between data points. So how often you are making of durations or recording data. The frequency about observation is a another way to put it. It's really important to select a proper and appropriate sampling interval for your study. You don't want it to be too fine and just generate a whole bunch of data that you can't really use but at the same time, you don't want your sampling interval to be so large that you don't detach the pattern that you're looking for. So really you have to cater your sampling interval to the study and the question at hand. This has been a discussion of sampling intervals.
