Jarmolowicz, David P.; Hayashi, Yusuke; St. Peter Pipkin, Claire
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v43 n2 p297-301 Sum 2010
Temporal patterns of behavior have been observed in real-life performances such as bill passing in the U.S. Congress, in-class studying, and quiz taking. However, the practical utility of understanding these patterns has not been evaluated. The current study demonstrated the presence of temporal patterns of quiz taking in a university-level introductory psychology course and used these patterns to manage the traffic of quiz takers in a computerized testing lab. Results are discussed in terms of the applications of tracking temporal response patterns. (Contains 1 figure.)
