Textbook Problem

Ford and Torok (2008) found that motivational signs were effective in increasing physical activity on a college campus. Signs such as “Step up to a healthier lifestyle” and “An average person bums 10 calories a minute walking up the stairs” were posted by the elevators and stairs in a college building. Students and faculty increased their use of the stairs during times that the signs were posted compared to times when there were no signs.
