Effective Components of Contingency Contracts with Academic Behaviors of College Students
McCoy, James F.; And Others
Journal of Experimental Education, 46, 1, 26-33, F 77
Investigates the comparative effects of written as opposed to verbally stated instructions and specification of contingencies, with the written contract containing the typically used written agreement. These procedures were applied to self-managed, naturalistic behaviors, and compared to self-monitoring alone. Study-question answering and amount of study time were manipulated, and effects on academic performance were measured. (Author/RK)
