To study the effectiveness of reinforcement management contingency management as applied to a military program of instruction already in operation, students in an Army clerk-typist course in which self-paced instruction is employed were given points for successive approximations to desired learning behavior. The points were exchangeable later for varying lengths of time off. The selective impact of contingency management found in this population is examined in terms of present military conduct of self-paced instruction, and in terms of military management of motivation and training.
