Journal of Behavioral Education, v20 n3 p149-162 Sep 2011
The effectiveness of fixed-time delivery of attention to increase the on-task behavior of 2 students in general education was examined. The teacher in this study provided attention to students on a 5-min fixed-time schedule and responded to students in her typical manner between cued intervals. An ABAB withdrawal design was used to test the effects of the intervention. The results of this study indicate that a fixed-time schedule of attention was effective in increasing students' on-task behavior and decreasing their off-task behavior. Implications of the study for research and practice are discussed.
