Examined the impact of different rates of problem completion on students' choice and perception of academic assignments. Results from 94 undergraduates, for whom target problems were altered across assignment pairs, show that the interspersal technique can enhance students' perceptions of assignments and that problem or task completion may be a reinforcing event.
