This project report inculcates the concept in given heads:
- Describe the theory of operant conditioning
- Define, compare and contrast positive and negative reinforcement.
- Determine which form of reinforcement is the most effective, positive or negative.
- Select a scenario in which you would apply operant conditioning to shape behaviour.
- Create a reinforcement schedule for your selected behaviour.
3. Theory of Operant Conditioning
- Positive Reinforcement
- Negative Reinforcement
4. Comparison and contrast Positive and Negative Reinforcement
5. Most effective form of Reinforcement for shaping behaviour
6. A scenario to apply Operant conditioning to shape behaviour
7. Create a reinforcement schedule for the selected behaviour
8. Relevant examples for each head and subhead
So to extinct the undesirable behaviour of smoking a continuous reinforcement should be scheduled to reinforce every single time the event occurs either in a form of positive or negative reinforcement less the desired behaviour will not be exhibited.
