Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of a self-monitoring program on the academic performance of eighth grade mainstreamed learning disabled students ages 13-14. Ten subjects underwent an intervention involving private conferencing on academic responsibility and use of self-monitoring using assignment books. Data was collected on frequency of using assignment books and homework completion for pre-intervention and post-intervention. Data was analyzed for increases in use of assignment books, homework completion, and correlations between self-recorded assignments and assignment completion. The major finding of this investigation was that there was a significant increase in completing assignments on time when self-monitoring was used.
