Group contingencies include the arrangement of a common consequence for responding by members of a group. Independent group contingencies involve a common consequence being delivered to an individual student based on her performance. Dependent group contingencies involve the consequence being delivered to the entire group based on the performance of an individual or small group of students. Numerous variables may be altered in a group contingency and arranging an effective intervention requires planful incorporation of each. This chapter reviews the components of independent and dependent group contingencies and considerations when designing and implementing group contingencies in educational settings.
