Abstract

In the present study, a practicum was conducted to teach students to design and implement a behavior change project. Procedures similar to the Willis et al. (1975) course and the Zimmerman et al. (1971) workshop were used to teach students how to design acceptable behavior change projects. Since both studies indicated that students can design practical projects, the author chose to solely investigate the students’ performances while implementing behavior change projects in fieldwork settings. Specifically, this study reports the effects of proctor feeding (proctoring in conjunction with the specification of the desired student behaviors) on college students' accuracy of implementation of a behavior change project in a fieldwork setting.
