Misbehavior in the Classroom: A Comparison of Two Reinforcement-Based Behavior-Reducing Procedures (DRO and DRL).
Hummel, John H.; And Others
Two methods of scheduling reinforcement, differential reinforcement of other behaviors (DRO) and differential reinforcement of low rates of responding (DRL), were investigated in two experiments that demonstrated each procedure's effectiveness in reducing misbehavior when used by teachers in school settings. A third experiment was undertaken to ascertain which procedure is more beneficial to educators in terms of implementation, effectiveness in reducing misbehavior, and acceptance by students. There were three subjects, aged 5, 7 and 10 (one for each experiment). Results demonstrated the effectiveness of both DRO and DRL schedules in the reduction of misbehavior. (Author/MS)
