AP Psych Semester 1 Ch 10 Learning PART 2

Question Answer
continuous reinforcement reward every time the behavior is done— reinforcement following the particular behavior every time it is exhibited– best for acquisition of a new behavior
partial reinforcement reward every so often to serve as a reminder of a specific wanted behavior– occasional reinforcement— best for resistance to exstinction
intermittent schedule maintains behavior better than continuous reinforcement– reinforcing a behavior only some of the time
fixed ratio consistent reinforcement after a specific number of responses (occurrences)
fixed interval consistent reinforcement after a specific length of time
variable ratio inconsistent reinforcement after a number of responses (occurrences) that changes at random
variable interval inconsistent reinforcement after a length of time that changes at random
superstitious behavior can result from unintended reinforcement or unimportant behavior– when a behavior is accidentally reinforced or punished

contigency the key to classical conditioning is how the conditioned stimulus predicts the appearance of the unconditioned stimulus
