Description

The mystery motivator (MM) is a behavioral intervention that provides an individual with an opportunity to earn rewards for appropriate behavior(s). A unique characteristic of the MM intervention is the element of reward uncertainty in which individuals are either unaware if the MM is in effect for a given day or which reward they will receive. The present study reports the results of a meta-analysis of the effects of the MM intervention on behavioral outcomes.
