Behavior Modification: A Model for Implementation of Theory in a Problem Situation.
Stevens, Richard E.
The purpose of this practicum was to develop, implement, and evaluate a system of behavior modification on a school-wide basis. The system developed was that of a token economy. Baseline data was gathered during the first three school months on behaviors identified as "avoidance." The system was implemented during the fourth school month and comparative data generated during the fourth and fifth school months. Target behaviors identified were increased punctuality, increased productive hours, and increased credit production. The system generated significant increases in credit production and productive hours but was not as successful in the area of punctuality. (Author)
