  1. a works best when it builds on an animal's natural behavior tendencies
  2. b a procedure in which reinforcers, such as food, are to guide the organism into the desired behavior; B.F Skinner
  3. c reinforce the first response after a varying time period that produces slow, steady responding
  4. d learning that become apperent only when there is some incentive to demonstrate it
  5. e strengthens a response by presenting a typically pleasurable stimulus after a response, such as food, money or tickets

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. the method involves the reinforcement of closer and closer approximations to the final performance; B.F Skinner
  2. responses are sometimes; learning is slower and random, but extinction is less likely compared to continious reinforcement, such as gambling, sales pitching or fishing
  3. any event that strengthens the the behavior that follows; B.F Skinner
  4. withdraw a desirable stimulus such as time-out from privilages or revoked drivers license
  5. decreases the frequency of a preceding behavior

5 True/False questions

  1. Fixed-interval schedulesreinforce the first response after a varying time period that produces slow, steady responding

          

  2. Operant conditioningworks best when it builds on an animal's natural behavior tendencies

          

  3. Law of effectany event that strengthens the the behavior that follows; B.F Skinner

          

  4. Generalizationoccurs when an organism's response to similar stimuli is also reinforced

          

  5. Fixed-ratio schedulesreinforce the first response after a fixed time period that produce rapid response near time of reinforcement; checking more frequently to see if a cake has finished rising
