CHAPTER 6

REINFORCEMENT SCHEDULES: EXPERIMENTAL ANALYSES AND APPLICATIONS

b. an increasing response rate
d. a decreasing response rate
Page(s): 128 Type: factual

2. Playing the lottery is an example of behavior maintained by a
a. fixed ratio schedule c. variable-interval schedule
b. variable ratio schedule d. concurrent schedule

4. In a fixed interval 60 second schedule, the delivery of a reinforcer

a. 60 c. 180
b. 120 d. not predictable
