Psychology of Learning (PSYC 210) Exam 3 Guided Notes 1 Conditional Discriminations Remember: Behavior Depends There are some responses that we emit, that are appropriate in some contexts and (usually) inappropriate in others What are some examples? So, it’s not always “ok” to emit these responses, but only under certain conditions. Learning these conditions means making _____________________________________ Conditional Discriminations Discriminations in which the role of one stimulus ______________________ others that provide its context Matching to Sample We’ll talk about what this procedure looks like with nonhumans, but how do you think it plays out with humans (kids)? Take notes, as I will discuss the figure below in a “step by step” fashion. Errors You Say? If an error occurs, a ______________________ is frequently implemented Essentially, the organism is exposed to the same choice trial again (and again, and again) We can also arrange it such that responses to the stimulus that ______________________ like the sample produce reinforcers

Psychology of Learning (PSYC 210) Exam 3 Guided Notes 2 This is called ______________________ Bias Refers to a preference for one alternative over another, even when that alternative is not associated with programmed reinforcers Bias, Rotation and Interpreting “Learning”— Pay Attention (Take Notes) Children with autism, “discrete trial training” How it works. What happens to behavior (the instructor’s and the child’s). [Write smart relevant things here] Arbitrary Matching (refer to the figures at the end of the guided notes as well). If given the color green, the correct response might be a ______________________ If given the color red, the correct response might be a circle. If given “B,” the correct response might be “______________________” If given , the correct response might be “______________________” There is no ______________________ ______________________ for the sample stimulus and the “correct response” It is completely arbitrary Note however, that I included some examples that you may not “consider” arbitrary (but the are) Stimulus Equivalence A series (3) of relationships must be present in order for us to say that an equivalence class has formed 1. ______________________ (aka, identity) properties 2. Symmetry 3. Transitivity Reflexivity (really identity matching) Can you “say” that A = A (green = green)

Psychology of Learning (PSYC 210) Exam 3 Guided Notes 3 Symmetry : the order of the terms is reversible Can you “say” that IF A = B, THEN B = A Think “______________________” Transitivity : common terms in two ordered pairs determine a third ordered pair Can you “say” that if A = B, and B= C, ______________________ Greater than: If G > H, H > I, then G > I Is that easy? Try this. IF G = 8, and H = 7, and I = 6, THEN, G > H, H > I, then G > I
