I

:
A discriminative stimulus consisting of a behavior that is modeled in order to occasion an imitative response. 17
:
Stimuli arising from the match between the behavior of the imitator and the behavior of the model.
:
A consequence that occurs just as a response is being completed or just after it has been completed. To be immediate the consequence must occur before a second response is made. Immediate feedback may occur naturally or it may be added. The high jumper gets natural immediate feedback for each jump from whether or not the bar falls down. He or she may also get immediate feedback that is added by a coach commenting on form as each jump is completed.
:
Usually, short-term memory. See REMEMBERING.
:
The effect of the reinforcement procedure decreases as the delay between the response and the outcome increases. Reinforcers delayed more than 60 seconds have little or no reinforcing effect.
:
Reinforcement which occurs while the reinforced person is still responding, or at least before he or she has a chance to make another response.
:
Reinforcement of every response. Sometimes called "regular" reinforcement. Nonintermittent reinforcement.
:
If performance changes as soon as a rule is stated, you've got rule control, not contingency control.
:
Contingency-shaped learning (as when one learns to speak grammatically even though one cannot state the grammatical rules).
:
Remembering demonstrated by the effect of an item on other behavior rather than by its recall (as when a priming stimulus enhances a learner's later recognition of a semantically related word even though the leader cannot report what the priming stimulus was).
