the future, an operant response is
followed by the removal of an
appetitive stimulus;

to strengthen preceding behavior
V Positive Punishment - in an attempt

Continuous Reinforcement desired behavior is reinforced every
single time it occurs – Once the
response if firmly attached,
reinforcement is usually switched to a
partial reinforcement schedule.
V Partial Reinforcement - response is
S reinforced only part of the time.
Learned behaviors are
acquired more slowly with
partial reinforcement, but
the response is more
resistant to extinction.
PARTIAL REINFORCEMENT SCHEDULES Ratio = Number, Interval = Time, Fixed = Specific, Variable = Random
Fixed-ratio schedules – response is reinforced only after a specific number of responses – e.g., delivering a food pellet to a rat after it
presses a bar five times.
Variable-ratio schedules - occur when a response is reinforced after an unpredictable number of
responses - e.g., gambling and lottery games
Fixed-interval schedules - are those where the first response is rewarded only after a specific
amount of time has elapsed – e.g., reinforcing a rat with a lab pellet for the first bar press after a 30
second interval has elapsed.
Variable-interval schedules - occur when a response is rewarded after an unpredictable amount of
time has passed – e.g., delivering a food pellet to a rat after the first bar press following a one
minute interval, another pellet for the first response following a five minute interval, and a third food
pellet for the first response following a three minute interval.
