    types of partial reinforcers fixed-ratio, variable-ratio, fixed-interval and variable-interval. Fixed-ratio schedules reinforce behavior after a set number of responses. For example, a dog doing a certain trick and getting a treat after each action. Variable-ratio schedules provide reinforcers after a seemingly unpredictable number of responses.

  • Observational Learning Case Study

    play and wait for the machine to pay back on the variable ratio schedule.
