The purpose of this action research project was to examine the relationship between a teacher implemented feedback system and its effects on negative behaviors. This action research project took place within an early childhood classroom. Data was collected to evaluate the effectiveness of using an incentive-based feedback system. Over a three-week period, the number of times praise and reprimand were given in addition to the number of times negative behaviors were observed was recorded. The data showed that with the increase of praise and decrease of reprimand, negative behaviors did in fact decrease in frequency. These findings could increase teachers' willingness to implement a feedback system.
