- Specify what the student will receive after completing a task to help ensure completion
of the task.
Ex. When you are done doing your homework, we will go play on the
playground. Ex. a parent requiring a child to clean his or her room before he or she can
watch television. In this case, television, an activity that probably does not require
reinforcement, is used as a reinforcer for cleaning the room, which in the context of this
example the child would not do without reinforcement.
Comments and/or tips:
The teacher must know what motivates the student (interest inventory, having
students make a list of things they are interested in, give students a list of possible
prizes and have them pick three)
