Module 6.3 Use continuous reinforcement to establish behavior. Fixed Ratio: predictable, consistent (reinforced every “n” behavior) schedule based on the number of responses Ex . For every “1000 th ” response (on an advertisement) the school gets 20 dollars. Ex . For every “3 rd ” car a salesman sells they get a bonus Most controllable schedule out of all for reinforcements Variable Ratio: reinforce, on average, every “Nth” behavior. Best example are slot machines (on avg. the machine will pay up every 10 th , 20 th , or even 30 th time) Fixed Interval: Reinforce every “Nth” period of time Ex. After training, a rat will go push a lever every 10 minutes to get food… The rat will then walk away after he presses the lever and then hangs out and roughly around 8 minutes it will walk closer to the lever again and when it’s 10 minutes the rat will press the lever (practically telling time) Variable Interval: reinforce, on average, every “Nth” period of time

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
