Which schedule of reinforcement produces a high, steady rate of responding, but with a postreinforcement pause?
Fixed Rate

Fixed rate reinforcement produces
a high, steady rate of responding, but with a postreinforcement pause.

Variable schedules of reinforcement produce
a steady high rate.

Which schedule of reinforcement produces an increasing rate as the end of the interval approaches and a postreinforcement pause?
Fixed Interval

Fixed Interval schedules of reinforcement
produce an increasing rate as the end of the interval approaches and a postreinforcement pause.

Variable Interval schedules of reinforcement produce
a constant, stable rate.

Which schedule of reinforcement produces a constant, stable rate?

schedule of reinforcement

Reinforcement provided with the first response after a constant length of time is
