Miller, Deborah L.; Kelley, Mary Lou
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v27 n1 p73-84 Spr 1994
This study, with 4 parent-child dyads in which the children (ages 9 to 11) exhibited substantial homework problems, found that goal setting and contingency contracting produced significant improvements in children's homework accuracy. Two of the subjects showed substantial improvements in on-task behavior. Parents rated the procedures highly. (Author/DB)
