  9. 9. 5. SYMBOLS AND ACRONYMS  Frame: It is a segment or sub-set of a programme  Branching frames: is alternative frames to which a learner is directed, depending on the response to a stimulus to the branching point.  Linear frames: It is a sequential development of a material through which all learners regardless of their response, must proceed in exactly the same order.  Reinforcement: It is a process of strengthening with new force. It may take the form of action, praise or knowledge of result, which has a potential of making the response to reoccur when such situation arises.  Response: It is the effort of the learner to react outwardly or internally to the stimulus received. It may take the form of a verbal response, written response or selection from alternatives provided.  Stimulus: It is an activity or information that impinge on a learner which can be manipulated by external forces.
