The quality / power of reinforcement can be determined with a reinforcer assessment. A variety of direct, data-based methods are used to present one or more stimuli contingent on a target response and then measuring the future effects on the rate of responding.
- Concurrent schedule of reinforcer assessment: pits two stimuli against each other to see which will produce the larger increase in responding when presented as a consequence for responding. The more effective reinforcer is the one that has more responses.
- Multiple schedule reinforcer assessment: reinforcers are delivered for the same behavior, on the same schedule but at different times; an SD is present to signal which schedule is in effect. The more effective reinforcer is the one associated with the session with the highest rate of behavior.
- Progressive schedule: response requirements for reinforcement are increased systematically independent of responding. The practitioner gradually requires more responses to receive reinforcement until a breaking point is reached and responding declines. A progressive ratio increases the behavior that must be emitted before receiving reinforcement. The reinforcers that produce the most behavior are considered the most reinforcing.
Very useful and easy to get
Hi, Could you give some examples of Multiple Schedules of Reinforcement? I’m having a difficult time understanding this concept.
There’s a typo in the same spot and same word where this information is found from the pass the big ABA exam book…..
Who’s copying who
