1. McCargo, Morgan G. The Effects of Plickers As Response Cards On Academic Engagement Behavior In High School Students.

Degree: MA, Psychology, 2017, University of Southern Mississippi

Multiple studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of increasing student opportunities to respond for increasing academically engaged behavior. The use of response cards has held the most efficacy in terms of increasing opportunities to respond, yet no research has been done with the addition of a technology component. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the utility of technology-based response cards on increasing academically engaged behavior of students in three high school general education classrooms. It is hypothesized that the use of Plickers® will increase academically engaged behavior classwide and decrease disruptive behavior across students in all three classrooms. Advisors/Committee Members: Keith C. Radley, Evan H. Dart, Joe Olmi.

2. White, Kristi. Increasing Teachers' Use of Behavior Specific Praise Via a Smart Watch.

Degree: MA, 2018, University of Southern Mississippi

This study evaluated the effects of a teacher prompting procedure to increase teacher behavior specific praise using a Smart Watch. Participants included three Head Start general education teachers. An ABAB design across participants was used to examine the effects of Smart Watch-based prompts on teachers’ praise rate. The study consisted of four phases: a) baseline, b) teacher praise training and intervention, c) withdrawal from intervention, and d) intervention reinstated. Implementation of the intervention resulted in increases of average behavior specific praise rates and general praise rates for all three participants. Although, averages fail to reach criterion set by the researcher of one statement per minute, these findings suggest that the Smart Watch prompting procedure may be an effective method for increasing Head Start teachers’ rates of BSP and GP. Advisors/Committee Members: Evan Dart, Keith Radley, Lauren McKinley.
