Reward Preference Profiles of Elementary School Children.
Cartwright, G. Phillip; Cartwright, Carol A.
The study was designed to determine the reward preference of a group of intermediate grade school children and to describe any differences which might exist in the preference patterns of these children when they were partitioned into groups according to grade level, sex, and intelligence level. The procedures including the use of the experimental Dunn-Rankin Reward Preference Inventory are described. Results include a general conclusion that different reward preference profiles did not emerge for the students in this study. It is believed that this outcome was due to the restricted range of characteristics which were used to categorize subjects. References are included as are seven tables of data used in this experiment, and a previous study of retarded children. (SJ)
