The Effects of Varied versus Constant High-, Medium-, and Low-Preference Stimuli on Performance
Wine, Byron; Wilder, David A.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v42 n2 p321-326 Sum 2009
The purpose of the current study was to compare the delivery of varied versus constant high-, medium-, and low-preference stimuli on performance of 2 adults on a computer-based task in an analogue employment setting. For both participants, constant delivery of the high-preference stimulus produced the greatest increases in performance over baseline; the varied presentation produced performance comparable to constant delivery of medium-preference stimuli. Results are discussed in terms of their implications for the selection and delivery of stimuli as part of employee performance-improvement programs in the field of organizational behavior management.
