Learned Helplessness in Learning Disabled Adolescents as a Function of Noncontingent Rewards.
Kleinhammer-Tramill, P. Jeannie; And Others
Learning Disability Quarterly, v6 n1 p61-66 Win 1983
Twenty-four learning disabled students (10 to 14 years old) assigned to three reward schedules (response contingent reward, 100 percent noncontingent reward, and 50 percent random noncontingent reward) were asked to replicate block designs and solve coding problems. No differences were found in errors, but Ss in noncontingent conditions demonstrated significantly greater response latencies. (Author/CL)
