  • When using Operant Behavior, there are two types of reinforcement schedules…continuous and partial. Continuous Reinforcement is given every time the desired behavior happens. Partial Reinforcement is only given some of the time that the desired behavior happens. There are also 4 sub-schedules of partial reinforcement, one of which is Fixed Ratio, where reinforcement is given after a specific # of responses.
  • This software clip shows the student receiving reinforcement after EVERY customer they help….which is a continuous schedule. It also shows a fixed ratio schedule, by giving reinforcement after they help all of the customers in line.

    • 3. Operant Conditioning
      A process of changing behavior by rewarding or punishing a subject each time an action is performed until the subject associates the action with pleasure or distress.
      Reinforcement Schedules
      Positive and Negative Reinforcement
      Positive and Negative Punishment
    • 4. Reinforcement Schedules
      Continuous Reinforcement: Given EVERY time
      Partial Reinforcement: Given only PART of the time.
      Fixed Ratio:
      reinforcement is given after a specific # of responses.
    • 5. Reinforcement Schedules
    • 6. Positive Reinforcement
      • To strengthen by providing a positive stimulus that increases the probability of a specific response
      • 7. Praise and Rewards
    • 8. Negative Reinforcement
      Taking something negative away in order to increase a response
      When a negative stimulus is eliminated, it will likely increase the chances that a student will complete the task correctly.
    • 9. Watch the video to view some examples of positive and negative reinforcement.
    • 10. Webster’s Definition:
      Function: noun
      Date: 15th century

    • 11. In Skinner’s Behaviorism:
      Punishment is a procedure in which responses are followed by either:
      (a) the removal of a positive reinforcer, or
      (b) the presentation of a negative reinforcer (or aversive stimulus).
    • 12. Positive & Negative Punishment
    • 13. Now view the video clip to review and determine the behaviorisms discussed.
