With continuous reinforcement an organism is reinforced _____. With intermittent reinforcement an organism is reinforced _____.
Much behavior is not reinforced every time it is emitted and the pattern of intermittent reinforcement strongly affects how fast an operant response is learned what its rate is at any given time and how long it continues when reinforcement ceases. The simplest rules controlling reinforcement are continuous reinforcement where every response is reinforced and extinction where no response is reinforced. Between these extremes more complex “schedules of reinforcement” specify the rules that determine …
Continuous reinforcement : Reinforcement occurs after each response. … Learning may be slower if reinforcement is intermittent that is following only some instances of the same response. … for example an organism might be reinforced on an interval schedule in the presence of one stimulus and on a ratio schedule in the presence of another.
