Abstract

A reward is any environmental offering one person gives to another in exchange for some service or achievement. A service is typically a requested action (e.g., read the chapter), whereas an achievement is typically performing to a standard (e.g., make the highest score). In the classroom, such teacher offerings set in motion several important downstream effects, including subsequent changes in students’ motivation, behavior, and development.
