Stenhoff, Donald M.; Davey, Bryan J.; Lignugaris/Kraft, Benjamin
Education and Treatment of Children, v31 n2 p203-211 2008
The effects of choosing between two academic assignments on task completion and percent correct by a ninth grade student with a learning disability was investigated. This case study extended the efficacy of antecedent based intervention as an instructional modification. Further, the study extends previous research by investigating the effect of choice on academic achievement. The withdrawal design showed that percent completed and correct were highest when the participant was given a choice between two assignments when compared to baseline conditions. Results are discussed in term of efficacy of choice as an antecedent intervention, choice selection, and future research directions. (Contains 1 figure.)
