computer assisted instruction
kind of programmed instruction, guiding and reinforcing the student step by step
reinforcers that gain their reinforcing power throught being associated with a reinforcer that meets a basic need
behavior acquired because a random act was accidentaly reinforced by a pleasant outcome
a consequence designed to decrease the likelihood that the behavior it follows will occur again
increases the likelihood that a behavior will occur again by introducig a desirable stimulus following the emitted response
applying operant conditioning principles in a systematic fashion to help improve behaviors
schedule of continous reinforcement
a reinforcement schedule where every desired response from an organism is reinforced
an apparatus designed by B.F. Skinner in order to study and test the impact of operant conditioning principles on learning
