Acquisition and Generalization of Purchasing Skills Using a Video Enhanced Computer-Based Instructional ProgramBy Ayres, Kevin M.; Langone, John; Journal of Special Education Technology, Vol. 17, No. 4, pp. 15-28

Study conducted to determine if computer-based interactive video lessons could effectively teach purchasing skills to three elementary school students with intellectual disabilities, as well as facilitate generalization of those skills to a community setting. The instructional package utilized video footage in order to teach basic consumer activities. Video footage was taken from a national grocery store chain, and allowed the participant to encounter male and female cashiers during standard monetary interactions. Quantitative analyses of the intervention showed that student progress on the computer-based intervention did not generalize to the community, though changes in purchasing behavior were observed from the pre-training to the post-training assessment.
