An Evaluation of the Effects of an Oven Timer Study Behavior and Concurrent Completion and Accuracy of Assignments for a First Grade Repeater: A Case Study.
Riegelman, Elizabeth D.; And Others
The effects of an oven timer as an antecedent stimulus on study behavior and concurrent completion and accuracy of reading and writing assignments were investigated for an 8-year-old first grade repeater who lacked motivation. Following baseline observations during which the teacher recorded study behavior and collected assignments with no comment, the teacher set an oven timer to cue the child. S's attending behavior increased from an average 48 percent of the time to an average 82 percent of the time; average percent correct increased from 52 percent to 77 percent; and average percent complete from 69 percent to 89 percent. A fading procedure was used to gradually remove the timer while maintaining the child's increased performance. The teacher was able to carry out the procedure while attending to 21 other students.
