5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. variable interval (VI) schedule
  2. emit
  3. continuous reinforcement
  4. discriminative stimuli
  5. unconditioned response (UCR)
  1. a send forth
  2. b occurs when every instance of a designated response is reinforced
  3. c cues that influence operant behavior by indicating the probable consequences (reinforcement or nonreinforcement) of a response; play a key role in the regulation of operant behavior
  4. d the reinforcer is given for the first response after a variable time interval has elapsed; the interval length varies around a predetermined average; a rat is reinforced for the first lever press after a minute interval has elapsed, but the following intervals are three minutes, two minutes, four minutes, etc. average is two minutes
  5. e an unlearned reaction to an unconditioned stimulus that occurs without previous conditioning

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. occurs when a designated response in reinforced only some of the time
  2. any presentation of a stimulus or pair of stimuli
  3. an organism acquires a response that prevents some aversive stimulation from occurring
  4. any relatively durable change in behavior or knowledge that is due to experience; shapes our personal habits, traits, preferences, and emotional responses
  5. occurs when an organism continues to make a response after delivery of the reinforcer for it has been terminated

5 True/False questions

  1. observational learninglearning that is not apparent from behavior when it first occurs

          

  2. cumulative recorderthe reappearance of an extinguished response after a period of nonexposure to the conditioned stimulus

          

  3. rest intervalthe gradual weakening and disappearance of a conditioned response tendency because the response is no longer followed by reinforcement

          

  4. extinctionthe initial stage of learning something

          

  5. fixed interval (FI) schedulethe reinforcer is given for the first response after a variable time interval has elapsed; the interval length varies around a predetermined average; a rat is reinforced for the first lever press after a minute interval has elapsed, but the following intervals are three minutes, two minutes, four minutes, etc. average is two minutes
