Effect of Group Size and Reinforcement on Classroom Participation
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study was to examine how yoking, or carrying over the number of verbal reinforcers, controlled subject participation, in both large and small group sizes. Five fifth grade students were asked to listen to short stories in both large groups of 25 students and small groups of 12 students. The students were then asked knowledge, comprehension and evaluation questions regarding the stories they heard. The students participated by holding up dry erase boards to answer the questions posed to them by the educator. The study showed that students participated more when the group size is smaller rather than larger.
