Precision Teaching is a behavior measurement system that emphasizes the development of behavioral repertoires and utilizes Standard Celeration Charts as its primary tool. This system has been applied across various areas, including mainstream and special education, and has successfully improved academic, motor, communication, and other skills. While previous systematic reviews have highlighted important aspects of Precision Teaching, a more comprehensive evaluation is needed to consider all its different applications and recent developments in conceptualizing it. Therefore, this systematic review and meta-analysis will assess the effectiveness of Precision Teaching in accelerating human behavior, identify all the areas of its application, and review the technical aspects of its implementation. The review aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the system and its potential benefits for individuals in different settings.
