A value-averaging model of behavior in reciprocal contingencies is presented as an alternative to the conservation model of J. Allison et al (see record 1980-27214-001), whose experiments were not adequate tests of the value-averaging model because Ss' motivational levels were not controlled across conditions. Nevertheless, on a qualitative level, the results are consistent with the value-averaging approach. (8 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
