Field Initiated Research Studies of Compliance and Educational Progress in Severely and Profoundly Handicapped Students. Final Report, FY 1982-83.
Haring, Norris G.; And Others
The final report presents progress of a project investigating compliance and noncompliance among severely handicapped students. Details are reported for each of the project's three years: from initial conceptualization of compliance and noncompliance, to training on the Microprocessor Operated Recording Equipment (MORE), to studies on the effects of various interventions (including precision teaching) on noncompliant behavior. Results of a study on the effects of structured programs concluded that the effect on generalized compliance was minimal. All-day compliance programs resulted in findings that were difficult to interpret. Repeated mandates used to improve the compliance of severely handicapped students appeared to be a promising approach. Latency analyses suggested that there is little reason to wait more than a few seconds for a pupil to respond to a compliance request. Extensive appendixes include MORE observation codes, an overview of data-based performance rules in making daily classroom decisions, and latency analyses charts. (CL)
