Restructuring Environmental Contingencies and Enhancing Self-Managed Supervision

The results of the 2016-17 Wing Institute’s research grant are now available on our web site. Laura Kern submitted the selected study that examines the effects of a brief training on active supervision and self-management and the use of a simple strategy of self-management (e.g., checklist and Direct Behavior Rating Scales to change adult behavior).

Three research questions were addressed related to recess supervisor and student behaviors:

  1. What are the effects of a brief training on self-management on recess supervisors’ active supervision behaviors?
  2. What are the effects of increasing active supervision on students’ problematic behavior during recess?
  3. Will any increase in recess supervisor’s use of self-management be maintained with the sole use of direct behavior rating scales as part of a self-management strategy of the adult active supervision
