5 Matching questions

  1. secondary/conditioned reinforcers
  2. operant conditioning
  3. intermittent reinforcement
  4. avoidance learning
  5. trial
  1. a a form of learning in which voluntary responses come to be controlled by their consequences; b.f. skinner
  2. b an organism acquires a response that prevents some aversive stimulation from occurring
  3. c any presentation of a stimulus or pair of stimuli
  4. d occurs when a designated response in reinforced only some of the time
  5. e events that acquire reinforcing qualities by being associated with primary reinforcers; money, good grades, attention, flattery, praise, applause

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. a period of nonexposure to the CS
  2. learning that is not apparent from behavior when it first occurs
  3. the reinforcer is given for the first response that occurs after a fixed time interval has elapsed; a rat in reinforced for the first lever press after a two minute interval has elapsed and then must wait two minutes before recieving the next reinforcement; students can earn grades by taking exams every three weeks
  4. the reinforcement of closer and closer approximations of a desired response
  5. an unlearned reaction to an unconditioned stimulus that occurs without previous conditioning

5 True/False questions

  1. learningthe reinforcement of closer and closer approximations of a desired response

          

  2. variable ratio (VR) schedulethe reinforcer is given after a variable number of nonreinforced responses; a rat in reinforced for every tenth lever press on the average. the exact number of responses required for reinforcement varies from one time to the next; a slot machine in a casino pays off once over six tried on average. the number of nonwinning responses varies greatly from one time to the next

          

  3. unconditioned stimulus (UCS)a previously neutral stimulus that has, through conditioning, acquired that capacity to evoke a conditioned response

          

  4. stimulus generalizationoccurs when an organism that has learned a response to a specific stimulus responds in the same way to new stimuli that are similar to the original stimulus; john b. watson

          

  5. escape learninglearning that is not apparent from behavior when it first occurs
