Abstract

Off-task behavior is a problem in many classrooms. This is a problem because there are ways to get off-task on chrome books, talking to desk neighbors, walking around the room, etc. The purpose of this study was to use music as a positively reinforcing intervention to increase on-task behavior in originally a student in the elementary class, but then became useful to use as a class. Using a single subject, AB research design, the examiner collected frequency data during daily observations. Results indicate that by the end of the six weeks of intervention, on-task behavior increased by 85%.
