On a fixed duration (FD) schedule....
reinforcement depends on performing a behavior continuously throughout a period of time.
On a variable duration (VD) schedule...
the behavior must be performed continuously for a varying, unpredictable period of time.
The fixed duration and variable duration schedules are...
less precise than the 4 basic schedules of reinforcement.
For fixed duration and variable duration schedules, the level of performance (quality) is...
difficult to control, and they can undermine intrinsic motivation.
In response-rate schedules...
reinforcement is directly dependent upon the organism's rate of response.
The response-rate schedules include:
differential reinforcement of high rates, differential reinforcement of low rates, and differential reinforcement of paced responding.
In differential reinforcement of high rates (DRH)...
reinforcement is dependent upon performing at least a certain number of responses in a certain period of time.
DRH (differential reinforcement of high rates) prompts...
a high rate of responding.
In differential reinforcement of low rates (DRL)...
a minimum amount of time must pass between each response, rewarding slower responses.
In differential reinforcement of paced responding (DPR)...
set and steady responses are rewarded.
