5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. partial (intermittent) reinforcement
  2. fixed-ratio schedule
  3. respondent behavior
  4. associative learning
  5. unconditioned response (UCR)
  1. a learning tht certain events occur together. the events may be two stimuli (as in classical conditioning) or a response and its consequences (as in operant conditioning)
  2. b reinforcing a response only part of the time; results in slower acquisition of a response but much greater resistance to extinction than does continuous reinforcement
  3. c in classical conditioning, the unlearned, naturally occurring response to the unconditioned stimulus (UCS), such as salivation when food is in the mouth
  4. d in operant conditioning, a schedule of reinforcement that reinforces a response only after a specified number of responses
  5. e behavior that opertes on the environment, producing consequences.

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. in operant conditioning, a schedule of reinforcement that reinforces a response at unpredictable time intervals
  2. in classical conditioning, a stimulus that unconditionally - naturally and automatically - triggers a response
  3. learning that occurs but is not apparent until there is an incentive to demonstrate it
  4. a relatively permanent change in an organism's behavior due to experience
  5. an operant conditioing procedure in which reinforcers guide behavior toward closer and closer approximation of a desired goal

5 True/False questions

  1. continuous reinforcementa stimulus that gains its reinforcing power through its association with a primary reinforcer (also known as a secondary reinforcer)

          

  2. condition stimulus (CS)in classical conditioning, a stimulus that unconditionally - naturally and automatically - triggers a response

          

  3. operant behaviorbehavior that operates on the environment, producing consequences

          

  4. spontaneous recoverythe reappearance, after a rest period, of an extinguished conditioned response

          

  5. law of effectin operant conditioning, any event that strengthens the behavior it follows
