Abstract

The purpose of this original research paper is to ascertain the extent of impact that reinforcement, goal orientation, motivation, and classroom behavior have on test performance.  Overall, results of reinforcement may vary according to school policies, procedures, and culture.  Students are able to set learning goals that accurately determine how well they will do over time.  Classroom performance on tests can differ according to referral groups.  Within the paper, there is primary focus on a counterbalanced mixed methods study.  The information helps to demonstrate that reinforcement still has a wealth of potential within current teaching and learning strategies.
