The Effects of Two Interdependent Group Contingencies on Peer Verbal Interaction and Math Performance.
Thurman, S. Kenneth; And Others
The effects of two interdependent group contingencies, group-average and group-individual, on math performance and verbal interaction were investigated. In a group-average contingency the average performance of the members of the group must meet a set criterion level. In a group-individual contingency each member of the group must meet a set criterion level. Five neurologically impaired students were used as subjects. A three-phase experimental design was used. The effect of the contingencies on math performance was found to be ambiguous. The data on verbal behavior indicate that the contingencies had a definite effect on the neutral, positive, and negative verbalizations emitted by the subjects. (Author)
