Duration Schedules
reinforcement occurs after the behavior has been engaged in for a continuous period of time
Fixed duration
response is reinforced only if it occurs a set time after last reinforcement, reinforcement to reinforcement
Variable duration
the interval time that the behavior must be engaged in continuously changes unpredictably from reinforcement to reinforcement
Ratio schedules
make reinforcement contingent on a certain number of responses being completed
Simple interval schedules
make reinforcement contingent on a response being made after a certain time period has elapsed
interval schedules with limited hold
make reinforcemnet contingent on response occuring within a limited period of time after a certain time period has elapsed
duration schedules
make reinforcement contingent on a response being made for a certain continuous period of time
limited hold
a deadline for meeting the response requirement of a schedule of reinforcement, that a response will produce the reinforcer
Are interval schedules with limited hold produce effects similar to those produced by ratio schedules ex: a bus will wait only a limite time
True
Variable-interval
the length of the interval changes unpredictably from one reinforcement to the next
Fixed-Interval
the first response after a fixed period of time following the previous reinforcemnet is reinforced and a new interval begins, the amount of time that must elapse before reinforcement becomes available
Fixed ratio
reinforcement occurs each time a set number of response of a particular type are emitted
ratio strain
deterioration of responding from increasing an FR schedule too rapidly
variable-ratio
the number of responses required to produce reinforcement changes unpredictably from one reinforcement to the next postreinforcement pause
Examples of VR
Slot Machines, Dates before the right one come along, casting a fish net
Points to know about FR
want a high rate of responding use FR schedule like the rat and the level to get reinforcement. FR is more commonly used because it is simpler
intermittent reinforcement
refers ti tge maintenance of a behavior by reinforcing it only occasionally rather than every time it occurs.
continuous reinforcement
simplest schedule,
extinction
opposite of continuous reinforcement
