5 Matching questions
- conditioned response (CR)
- primary reinforcer
- operant behavior
- a an innately reinforcing stimulus, such as one that satisfies a biological need
- b an event that decreases the behavior that it follows
- c the process of observing and imitating a specific behavior
- d behavior that operates on the environment, producing consequences
- e in classical conditioning, the learned response to a previously neutral conditioned stimulus (CS).
5 Multiple choice questions
- an operant conditioing procedure in which reinforcers guide behavior toward closer and closer approximation of a desired goal
- 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
- 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
- reinforcing the desired response every time it occurs
- in operant conditioning, a schedule of reinforcement that reinforces a response after an unpredictable number of responses.
5 True/False questions
unconditioned response (UCR) → in classical conditioning, the learned response to a previously neutral conditioned stimulus (CS).
operant conditioning → a type of learning in which behavior is strengthened if followed by reinforcement or diminished if followed by punishment
respondent behavior → behavior that operates on the environment, producing consequences
fixed-ratio schedule → in operant conditioning, a schedule of reinforcement that reinforces a response only after a specified number of responses
associative learning → learning by observing others
