Children's Self-Determination of Standards in Reinforcement Contingencies: A Re-Examination.
Wall, Shavaun M.
Journal of School Psychology, v21 n2 p123-31 Sum 1983
The effects of contingent reinforcement under conditions of self-determined and externally determined standards were studied in two fifth-grade language art classes (N=64 students). Contingent reinforcement with externally determined standards produced an increase over reinforcement with self-determined standards. Experience with external standards did not influence subsequent self-determined standards. (Author/HLM)
