If the arrangement in a fixed-ratio schedule of reinforcement is 3, when will the student receive the reinforcer?
Wesley is having trouble ignoring distractions. At first you have him seated at a carrel which is located in a corner of the room. He does well so, you eventually move him out of the carrel for increasing portions of the day. Eventually he is able to sit in a seat with the rest of his classmates. This is an example of:
Laura is beginning to raise her hand first instead of talking out. An effective schedule of reinforcement would be:
As Laura continues to raise her hand to speak, the teacher would want to change this schedule of reinforcement in order to wean her from reinforcement:
Laura has demonstrated that she has mastered the goal of raising her hand to speak, reinforcement during the maintenance phase should be:
Are natural and logical.

Data on quiet behaviors (e.g. nail biting or daydreaming) are best measured using a:
Mr. Jones wants to design an intervention for reducing Jason’s sarcastic remarks. He wants to find out who or what is reinforcing Jason’s remarks, so he records data on Jason’s behavior of his peers. This is an example of collecting data on:
Single behaviors for multiple subjects.
Ms. Beekman has a class of students who frequently talk out. She wishes to begin interventions with the students who are talking out the most. She monitors the talking behavior of the entire class for 1 minute samples every half hour. This is an example of collecting data on:

Harm might come to the student or others.
Addressing a student’s maladaptive behavior right away with a “time out” should be reserved for situations where:
