Neef, Nancy A.; And Others
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v25 n3 p691-99 Fall 1992
This study examined how 3 students (ages 14-18, with emotional or behavioral disorders) allocated their responding across 2 concurrently available tasks associated with unequal rates and equal versus unequal qualities of reinforcement. It found that time allocated to concurrent response alternatives was approximately proportional to obtained reinforcement only when reinforcer quality was equal. (Author/DB)
