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
