Effects of an Interdependent Group Contingency on Engagement in Physical Education
Hirsch, Shanna Eisner; Healy, Sean; Judge, Joann P.; Lloyd, John Wills
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v49 n4 p975-979 Dec 2016
We examined whether a group contingency increased engagement during elementary school physical education sessions. The intervention employed procedures (explicit instruction, goal setting, and reinforcement) drawn from the first tier of classwide function-related intervention teams (CW-FIT; Wills et al., 2009). Results showed salutary increases in engagement that corresponded with the teacher's implementation.
