Effects of Extrinsic Reinforcement for Reading During Childhood on Reported Reading Habits of College Students

Stephen R. Flora, David B. Flora
1999 The Psychological Record  
College students were surveyed about the amount they read per week, their intrinsic interest in reading , if they participated in the Book It!  ...  If they participated in Book It! and/or were paid to read , they were also asked what effects these factors had on their learning to read , their enjoyment of reading, and on the amount they read.  ...  Participants were asked to mark male or female on the front of the survey and then to complete the survey in order.  ...

Hierarchical principles of embodied reinforcement learning: A review [article]

Manfred Eppe, Christian Gumbsch, Matthias Kerzel, Phuong D.H. Nguyen, Martin V. Butz, Stefan Wermter
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Among the most promising computational approaches to provide comparable learning-based problem-solving abilities for artificial agents and robots is hierarchical reinforcement learning.  ...  There exists pressing evidence that the cognitive mechanisms that enable problem-solving skills in these species build on hierarchical mental representations.  ...  Reinforcement learning typically models intrinsic motivation through intrinsic rewards.  ...

Using Individual Positive Reinforcement Strategies to Enhance Task Completion in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders

2017 American Research Journal of Humanities and Social Sciences  
In many cases, instead of completing a directed task they might instead not engage in the activity, making it difficult to teach them and keep them on task and learning.  ...  Studying positive reinforcement techniques in the absence of a measurable outcome is useless, I soon realized.  ...  It also seems to suggest that I should be wary of relying too heavily on positive reinforcement techniques, as they can result in decreased intrinsic motivation.  ...
