Turco, Timothy L.; Elliott, Stephen N.
Journal of School Psychology, v28 n1 p27-37 Spr 1990
Used pretest-posttest control group design to assess how varying task structures (individual or group) and incentive structures (interdependent, dependent, or no-incentive) affected dependent variables (spelling achievement, peer-dominated social status, treatment acceptability) in fifth grade students (N=74). No significant differences in spelling achievement were found resulting from incentive or task structures. (Author/ABL)
