The effects of incentives on human learning and performance have been the subject of numerous investigations. Some investigations have been concerned with the relative efficacy of qualitatively different types of incentives, while others have been concerned with the differential effects of incentives as a function of characteristics of the subject. The literature with respect to both the relative efficacy of different types of incentives and the differential effects of incentives as a function of characteristics of the subject is somewhat conflicting. These conflicting results have been attributed to such variables as the type of task, the reinforcement history of the subjects, and the statistical techniques employed.
