Interteaching: The Effects of Quality Points on Exam Scores
Saville, Bryan K.; Zinn, Tracy E.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v42 n2 p369-374 Sum 2009
Although previous studies have found interteaching to be an effective alternative to traditional methods of instruction, few studies have examined which of its components contribute to its effectiveness. In the current study, we examined whether manipulating quality points had an effect on our students' exam scores. In two sections of an undergraduate general psychology course, we used interteaching but alternated between quality points and no quality points several times throughout the semester; we also counterbalanced the order of presentation across sections. We found that quality points did not have an effect on exam scores. (Contains 1 figure.)
