    Fixed Rate
  2. Fixed rate reinforcement produces
    a high, steady rate of responding, but with a post-reinforcement pause.
  3. Variable schedules of reinforcement produce
    a steady high rate.
  4. Which schedule of reinforcement produces an increasing rate as the end of the interval approaches and a post-reinforcement pause?
    Fixed Interval
  5. Fixed Interval schedules of reinforcement
    produce an increasing rate as the end of the interval approaches and a post-reinforcement pause.
  6. Variable Interval schedules of reinforcement produce
    a constant, stable rate.
  7. Which schedule of reinforcement produces a constant, stable rate?
    Variable Interval

    schedule of reinforcement
  9. Reinforcement provided with the first response after a constant length of time is
    a fixed interval schedule of reinforcement.
  10. Reinforcement after an average of a certain number of responses is a
    Fixed Ration schedule of reinforcement.
  11. Reinforcement after a set number of responses is a
