The effects of manipulating objects in modeling films on imitative response topographies 1975 129 Imitative responding has been the focus of considerable theoretical and research attention. Many studies have dealt with variables which are associated with response matching following the observation of a modeling sequence. However, recent research ...
A comparison of the effects of reinforcing accuracy and on-task responses in a programmed remedial program with fourth-grade reading problem children 1974 126 One-to-one assessment and individualized instruction have been the methods of choice in the identification and remediation of retarded readers. Educational systems, however, have not been able to meet the demand for individualized assessment or instr...
WISC characteristics and Devereux behavior scale ratings for third grade reading disabled children identified by the years below, Bond and Tinker, and Erickson Z-score methods 1974 90 The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC) and Spache Diagnostic Reading Scales were administered to one hundred and twenty third graders. Teachers responsible for reading instruction completed the Devereux Behavior Rating Scales for each ch...
Effects of subjects' expectancy of experimenter's involvement on live and taped relaxation training 1974 91 Progressive or deep muscle relaxation training has become an increasingly popular psychotherapeutic procedure. The usage of relaxation training has increased primarily because of the impressive success of treatment procedures utilizing such training....
The effect of bias instructions on the judgments and interobserver agreements of naive behavior observers 1977 125 Behavioral scientists have been interested in increasing their understanding of the variables affecting observational data. Concern with improving the reliability of these data has led to numerous investigations of systematic observation methods. One...
The influence of choice of materials and prompts and feedback upon the arithmetic performance of first-grade children 1976 113 The present investigation was conducted in order to examine specific components or variables of academic instruction using objective criteria. In particular, the additional value of instructional prompts and feedback over attention and exposure to ar...
The effect of sex differences and brief peer deprivation or satiation on social behaviors in infants 1976 106 Research in the area of peer social behaviors of children has been approached primarily through observational and correlational studies. Knowledge with respect to the variables controlling the acquisition and maintenance of social behavior in very yo...
Comparisons of procedures for modifying question-asking behavior of mildly retarded children 1973 16 Questioning is one form of information-seeking behavior. Skinner (1957) has classified question-asking behavior as a mand. As such, a question specifies its own reinforcer, which is the answer. For example, the question, "What is your name?" is reinf...
WISC, VMI, and behavioral characteristics of reading disabled children identified by the Z-Score method 1974 16 Ninety-nine third grade children were administered the Slosson Intelligence Test and the Slosson Oral Reading Test. Fifteen percent of those children with the largest discrepancies between the z-score for reading achievement and the z-score for I.Q. ...
Depression in college students : analysis of activity preference and comparison of treatment approaches 1974 17 The first goal of this study was to determine whether depressed and non-depressed college students could be discriminated on the basis of both the quantity and quality of reported everyday activities. Results of a multivariate discriminant analysis d...
A comparison of two training procedures for maintaining inter-rater reliability 1974 14 Much behavior modification research has relied on the use of human observers to collect data. However, instrumental errors have been found to be associated with the collection of observational data. The present study compared two types of training pr...
An evaluation of three approaches for reducing disruptive behavior in preschool children 1974 11 Punishment of undesired behavior and reinforcement of desired behavior are two approaches which can be used to decrease the rate of undesirable behavior. The most common approach in prior research has been reinforcement of desired behavior. The effec...
The effect of remedial reading programs on the classroom behavior of children with reading disabilities 1975 60 The association between reading disability and inappropriate classroom behavior has been reiterated in the literature. One hypothesis concerning the joint occurrence of reading and behavior problems is that the behavior problem is secondary to the le...
The effects of social reinforcement and reprimand techniques on the behaviors of disruptive children and the other children in the classroom 1975 9 A number of studies have investigated the application of learning principles in the modification of inappropriate and disruptive classroom behaviors. These studies have included techniques such as teacher attention (Becker, Madsen, Arnold, & Thomas, ...
The effect of social reinforcement contingencies on the predictive validity of IQ test scores 1976 26 One important use of intelligence testing is to predict future academic success. The achievement test is one measure of academic success. If intelligence tests are to be useful, they must demonstrate good predictive validity. It was hypothesized that...
Examiner race effects on standard vs. culture-fair IQ performance and correlations with achievement 1976 13 The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of examiner race on, first, the IQ test performance of black male children with two types of tests, a standard intelligence test (Slosson) and a culture-fair intelligence test (CFIT) and, secondly, ...
