Investigating the Problem of Skill Generalization: Literature Review I.
Haring, Norris; And Others
As part of a 5-year investigation of skill generalization in severely handicapped students, a literature review was undertaken within each of three general approaches: performance pattern studies, ecological studies, and self-control studies. The first paper, "Descriptive Analysis of Extant Research Literature concerning Skill Generalization and the Severely/Profoundly Handicapped" by Owen R. White, reviews 30 studies from the Washington Research Organization (UWRO) and concludes that only 13 of the studies provided information useful in systematically refining an instructional technology for promoting skill generalization with severely handicapped persons. Ann K. Berman and Cheryl L. Opalski ("The Impact of Functional Trial Sequencing upon Generalization") review effects on skill generalization of the nature of the task, the environment, and the task's impact. In the final paper, "Self-Monitoring and Skill Generalization: A Review of Current Research," Kathleen A. Liberty focuses on studies of self-monitoring, one of three most common self-control techniques. (CL)
