:
A quantifiable dimension of a property of a natural phenomenon. Also referred to as a quantity.
:
An approach to measurement that describes the amounts of the dimensional quantities of the events observed. Involves attaching a number representing the observed extent of a dimensional quantity to an appropriate unit.
:
A unitless or scalar number that results from calculations whose components share the same dimensional quantities.
:
A teaching method that involves using a prepared curriculum (i.e., DISTARTM). (1) following a very carefully organized and detailed sequence of instruction; (2) teaching skillfully in small groups when appropriate; (3) evoking unison responses; (4) using signals to encourage all students to participate; (5) pacing presentations quickly; (6) applying specific techniques for correcting and preventing errors; and (7) using praise.
:
Reinforcements occur only when the rate is below some specified value.
:
usually, producing a discrimination in respondent conditioning. See RESPONDENT DISCRIMINATION.
:
The occurrence of a reinforcement on selected occasions as or after one topography of a performance as opposed to another topography, is called differential reinforcement. For example, one may differentially reinforce performances which exert a great deal of force on the lever as opposed to performances which operate it lightly.
:
A schedule that specifies reinforcement of a sequence of responses only when they occur in rapid succession (i.e., above a preset rate). 32
:
of high rates, of low rates, and of paced responses.
:
(1) The reinforcement of one class (or form, or topography) of behavior and not another. (2) In producing stimulus control, reinforcement of a behavior under one stimulus condition but not under another stimulus condition. Also, reinforcing one behavior under one stimulus condition as other behaviors are reinforced under different stimulus conditions. 15
