SIRS: Investigation of the Relative Efficacy of Two Response Prompting Techniques in the Instruction of Students with Severe Handicaps. Final Report.
Billingsley, Felix F.
The study investigated the comparative effectiveness of the graduated guidance and time delay response prompting techniques when utilized as part of instructional interventions with students with severe disabilities. A replicated single subject, repeated measure design was used with seven subjects, aged 13-21. No significant differences were found between performance under time delay and graduated guidance treatments. Of the seven subjects, three showed no educationally significant progress under either experimental procedure. Acquisition and maintenance slopes for the remaining four subjects did not support the superiority of either experimental procedure. (JDD)
