The Effects of Fixed-Time Escape on Inappropriate and Appropriate Classroom Behavior
Waller, Rachael D.; Higbee, Thomas S.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v43 n1 p149-153 Spr 2010
Few studies have explored the effects of fixed-time (FT) reinforcement on escape-maintained behavior of students in a classroom setting. We measured the effects of an FT schedule on the disruptive and appropriate academic behaviors of 2 junior high students in a public school setting. Results demonstrated that FT escape from tasks resulted in a substantial decrease in disruptive behavior and an increase in time engaged in tasks for both participants. (Contains 1 figure.)
