The Effects of Highlighting on the Math Computation Performance and Off-Task Behavior of Students with Attention Problems
Kercood, Suneeta; Grskovic, Janice A.
Education and Treatment of Children, v32 n2 p231-241 May 2009
This study evaluated the effects of color highlighting during a math computation task on performance accuracy and behavior of students with attention problems. Using a multiple baseline across participants design, three students solved math computation problems on worksheets with and without highlighting. Off-task behavior recorded from videotape and number of problems correct were measured. Results suggest highlighting increased math computation accuracy and reduced off-task behavior for students with attention problems. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
