A points system and its impact on student behaviors
MetadataShow full item record
Negative classroom behaviors can affect not only the learning of the child exhibiting the behaviors, but they can disrupt the learning of other children in the classroom. Creating a points system to manage negative behaviors in class can contribute to a successful learning environment for all students. The participants included 24 students in third and fifth grades who received special education services in the school’s resource room. The researcher found that introducing a points system decreased negative and unwanted behaviors and increased positive and wanted behaviors in the classroom.
