This study investigated the feasibility of using college credit as a motivating factor for parents to learn child behavior management techniques. Sixteen female and four male adults indicated their preference for either a group receiving college credit or the group receiving no credit. Subjects in both groups were measured by pretests and post-tests on seven attitude and one knowledge measure. Both workshops were identical in format, instruction, and length of time. Results indicated that all subjects improved in attitude and knowledge of child behavior management techniques but that the presence or absence of college credit made no difference in the subject scores.
