Studying intraindividual variability can be made more productive by examining variability of interest at specific time scales, rather than considering the variability of entire time series. Examination of variance in observed scores may not be sufficient, as these neglect the time scale dependent relationships between observations. This article outlines a method to examine intraindividual variability through estimates of the variance and other distributional properties at multiple time scales using estimated derivatives.
