5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. continuous reinforcement
  2. latent learning
  3. unconditioned stimulus (UCS)
  4. classical conditioning
  5. unconditioned response (UCR)
  1. a in classical conditioning, the unlearned, naturally occurring response to the unconditioned stimulus (UCS), such as salivation when food is in the mouth
  2. b reinforcing the desired response every time it occurs
  3. c a type of learning in which an organism comes to associate stimuli. a neutral stimulus that signals an unconditioned stiumlus (UCS) begins to produce a response that anticaipates and prepares for the unconditioned stimulus (also called Pavlovian conditioning)
  4. d in classical conditioning, a stimulus that unconditionally - naturally and automatically - triggers a response
  5. e learning that occurs but is not apparent until there is an incentive to demonstrate it

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. the tendency, once a response has been conditioned, for stimuli similar to the conditioned stimulus to elicit similar responses
  2. reinforcing a response only part of the time; results in slower acquisition of a response but much greater resistance to extinction than does continuous reinforcement
  3. behavior that opertes on the environment, producing consequences.
  4. an innately reinforcing stimulus, such as one that satisfies a biological need
  5. learning by observing others

5 True/False questions

  1. fixed-interval schedulein operant conditioning, a schedule of reinforcement that reinforces a response only after a specified number of responses

          

  2. conditioned response (CR)in classical conditioning, the unlearned, naturally occurring response to the unconditioned stimulus (UCS), such as salivation when food is in the mouth

          

  3. behaviorismthe view that psychology (1) should be an objective science that (2) studies behavior without reference to mental processes. most research psychologists today agree with (1) but not with (2)

          

  4. variable-interval schedulein operant conditioning, a schedule of reinforcement that reinforces a response at unpredictable time intervals

          

  5. associative learninglearning by observing others
