McGinnis, J. Christopher; Friman, Patrick C.; Carlyon, William D.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v32 n3 p375-79 Fall 1999
A multielement baseline design was used to analyze effects of token rewards delivered contingent upon completion of math problems by two middle-school boys. Time spent on math and amount of math completed increased during reward conditions and were maintained during fading and withdrawal. At follow-up, results were maintained for one boy but fell below baseline for the other. (Author/DB)
