Van Houten, Ron; Little, Greg
Education and Treatment of Children, v5 v1 p23-32 Win 1982
The accuracy and rate of correctly completed math problems increased when three educable retarded adolescents were required to do the assignment in a shorter than usual period of time. Findings differed from previous studies which revealed that abrupt shifts produce a decline in response rate and undesirable emotional side effects. (Author/CL)
