Programmed Reinforcement in the Classroom The Effects of Tangible Reinforcement on Educational Achievement of American Indian Children. Final Report by Bruce A Chadwick( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report presented findings of an educational program utilizing systematically scheduled tangible reinforcement to improve the academic performance of underachieving American Indian children from extremely deprived backgrounds. Participants were 7th and 8th grade students in an all-Indian private school, St. Mary's Mission (Catholic), on the Colville Indian Reservation in Washington State. Data were collected from November 1969--May 1970. The 54 students were from economically deprived homes in which a majority of parents were separated by unemployment, emotional problems, serious drinking problems, divorce, or death. The results generally provided significant support for the effects of contingent tangible reinforcement on all the dependent variables. In addition, it was discovered that termination of the reinforcement after 14 weeks led to only minor reductions in academic performance and slight increases in classroom disturbances during the final post-experimental baseline period. Several possible interpretations for this resistance to extinction were offered. Finally, several findings on the relation of selected attitudes to performance variables were presented in tables.

Some effects of combining close, punitive, and supportive styles of supervision by Robert C Day( Book )

2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An experiment based on a two-by-two-by-two factorial design was conducted to test hypotheses involving the relationship of three supervisory styles to aggressive feelings and actions of subordinates. Low and high variations of close, punitive and supportive supervision were compared for their independent and combined effects on the dependent variables. In contrast to earlier work where interaction and consensus about the leader was allowed, it was found that when subjects worked independently without discussion of the leader's style, that punitive supervision controlled four to five times as much variance in aggressive feelings as the close style (20% vs. 5%; 15% vs. 3%). The supportive style produced significant reductions in aggressive feelings acting independently but had its most powerful positive effects when paired with close and punitive styles. Where combined with punitive and close leadership, singly and in tandum, the supportive style produced significant drops in the explained variance on aggressive feelings toward the supervisor of up to thirty-four percentage points with punitivity and up to sixteen points with the close style. The close style produced a significant drop in productivity and punitive supervision unexpectedly achieved a slight increase in output. The supportive style independently produced a nearly significant drop in output but had its most interesting effects acting in combination with the close and punitive styles. (Author)

Some effects of close and punitive styles of supervision( Book )

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An experiment based on a two-by-two factorial design was conducted to test hypotheses involving the relationship of four supervisory styles to aggressive feelings and actions of subordinates. As manipulated in the experiment, the supervisory styles can be arrayed on two continua: the close versus general, and the punitive versus nonpunitive. The results show that close as compared with general supervision produced a significant increase in aggressive feelings toward the supervisor, a significant increase in indirect aggression toward the supervisor through lowered productivity, an insignificant increase in verbal aggression toward the supervisor, and finally, an increase of borderline significance in aggressive feelings toward co-workers. The results also indicate that punitive as compared with non-punitive supervision produced a significant increase in aggressive feelings toward the supervisor, a significant increase in indirect aggression through lowered productivity, a significant increase in verbal aggression, but no significant increases in aggression toward coworkers or the task. Furthermore, the results indicate that the relationship between close supervision and aggressive feelings is mediated by self-esteem, a personality characteristic of the subordinate. (Author)
