Abstract

The reactive effects of three schedules of self-monitoring of verbal classroom participation were assessed using a reversal design. One hundred and eight undergraduate students in five different college courses served as subjects. Half the subjects in each of three experimental classes self-monitored the frequency of classroom verbalizations under one of three self-monitoring schedules: continuous, intermittent, and continuous plus intermittent. The remaining students served as controls. The results indicated that only one of the experimental groups (continuous plus intermittent self-monitoring) was consistently affected by self-monitoring as measured by response rate change and percentage of days participating. The inconsistent effects of self-monitoring precluded a comparison of the differential scheduling effects. The results were discussed in relation to previous research involving self-monitoring reactivity and differential scheduling effects.
