The decrease in the charm, a small plastic cow, was determined mainly by its lower value for fifth-grade boys. 18 Sam L. Witryol Fig, 1. , 1965). Trial block effects have already been shown to reflect learning as well as incentive preference distributions in this complex five-choice task; the decline of nothing over trials was significant and pronounced in all samples. Analysis of variance by rank for all incentive conditions, for the conditions excluding nothing, and for the three closely spaced material incentives yielded statistical significance in every sample but one; firstgrade boys did not discriminate between the three material incentives.

025; furthermore, there was no difference between correlated and uncorrelated groups as dictated by the distinctiveness hypothesis. 05, under correlated, but not uncorrelated or control conditions, confirming the motivational “pulling power” incentive finding from Siegel’s laboratory. Haaf concluded (1969, p. 26) . , . the results of this study support Siege1 and Schneider’s . . contention that discrimination acquisition is influenced both by variation in incentive properties of reward objects and by variation in their cue properties, such as size, shape, and color.

Given the achievement orientation of our subjects, sheer information via reinforcement, independent of incentive value, may have provided the sufficient signal value. We set out, then, to devise a test of the child’s incentive magnitude history differentially associated to relevant stimulus dimensions. This time, the within-subjects design was employed in training, and between-subjects in test (Witryol, Lowden, & Fagan, 1967). In the 40 trial training session, two identical or two different color cues yielded a high reward, the penny, and the same arrangements occurred for two form cues associated to the bean, the low reward; incentive magnitude-dimension associations were counter balanced for half of the subjects.
