5 Matching questions

  1. conditioned reinforcer
  2. fixed-ratio schedule
  3. observational learning
  4. generalization
  5. conditioned response (CR)
  1. a a stimulus that gains its reinforcing power through its association with a primary reinforcer (also known as a secondary reinforcer)
  2. b in classical conditioning, the learned response to a previously neutral conditioned stimulus (CS).
  3. c learning by observing others
  4. d the tendency, once a response has been conditioned, for stimuli similar to the conditioned stimulus to elicit similar responses
  5. e in operant conditioning, a schedule of reinforcement that reinforces a response only after a specified number of responses

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. the diminishing of a conditioned response; occurs in classical conditioning when an unconditioned stimulus (UCS) does not follow a conditioned stimulus (CS); occurs in operant conditioning when a response is no longer reinforced
  2. the effect of promising a reward for doing what one already likes to do. the person ma now see the reward, rather than the intrinsic interest, as the motivation for performint the task
  3. in classical conditioning, the unlearned, naturally occurring response to the unconditioned stimulus (UCS), such as salivation when food is in the mouth
  4. thornkide's principle that behaviors followed by favorable consequences become more likely, and that behaviors followed by unfavorable consequences become less likely
  5. learning that occurs but is not apparent until there is an incentive to demonstrate it
