Contingency Management and Student Motivation.
Some educators are turning to the process of contingency management within a classroom as a short term, immediate motivator which can work for virtually every student, regardless of his/her final grade in the course. Contingency management consists of providing a set of alternatives from which those chosen by the student reward the students in some way for having undertaken extra or more difficult work. Contingency management has the additional advantage of helping lead students toward longer-range goal accomplishment and ultimate self-management, through successful attainment of a series of short-term goals. This paper discusses the use of contingency management, in a classroom, to provide motivation to students. (HMV)
