The Effectiveness of Three Classes of Reinforcers on the Performance of Children from Low Income Families.
Uselmann, Michael S.
The focus of this study was to determine whether significant differences existed in reward preference in a learning task among preschool children from low income families. There were no statistically significant effects, and no clearcut differences between preferences for material, verbal, or physical reinforcement. It was concluded that the variable is not in the socioeconomic status factor alone. Further research studies should be designed to examine the variables of age, sex, familiar figure as reinforcer, race, and developmental level of children. (Author/DM)
