Logan, Patricia; Skinner, Christopher H.
School Psychology Quarterly, v13 n4 p322-34 Win 1998
Sixth-grade students were given eight minutes per assignment to work computation problems on a mathematics assignment containing 25 four-digit by one-digit problems and an assignment containing 25 similar problems plus nine interspersed one-digit plus one-digit problems. When given a choice for a third assignment, students chose the one with more problems. (Author/MKA)
