Effects of Social Reinforcement on Motor Performance of Trainable Retarded Students on Speed and Persistence Tasks.
Heitman, Robert J.; Justen, Joseph E., III
Perceptual and Motor Skills, v54 n2 p391-94 Apr 1982
The effects of social reinforcement on two motor tasks by 40 retarded adolescents with high (8.09 yr.) and low (5.45 yr.) mental ages was investigated. Social reinforcement influenced persistence but not speed of performance. The effectiveness of praise on retarded subjects' performances varies with the type of motor task used. (Author/RD)
