The I-Connect self-monitoring application was utilized on a Samsung Galaxy 5.0 player with two students with autism. The thesis project was completed to study the relationship between the I-Connect self-monitoring system and on-task behavior. A single-subject ABAB withdrawal design replicated across two students was utilized to demonstrate a functional relationship between the instructional strategy and student behavior. Participant one increased on-task behavior from a baseline average of 33% to 95% during intervention. Participant two increased on-task behavior from an average of 9% to 91.2% during intervention. Participant one increased accuracy on mathematic problems from an average of 21.8% during baseline to 50.5% during intervention. Participant two increased accuracy on writing assignments from 18.8% during baseline to 63% during intervention. The use of the I-Connect self-monitoring system increased on-task behavior for two students with autism.
