Effects of a Self-Recording Procedure on the Attending to Task Behavior and Academic Productivity of Institutionalized, Severe Behavior Disordered Adolescents.
Morrow, Lonny W.; And Others
The effects of a self-recording procedure on time on task and academic productivity of two institutionalized behavior disordered adolescents were investigated. Daily observations were made using time sampling to assess attention to task, and the number of mathematics problems solved correctly was recorded. Treatment encouraged the use of a self-report procedure for on-task behavior. Dramatic increases for both Ss in attending to task were noted when the self-recording procedure was initiated. Consistent academic productivity gains for one S were also revealed. Findings replicated previous studies and suggested that self-recording procedures may also be useful in preventing disruptive behaviors. (CL)
