    • A.

      Context variable

    • B.

      Antecedent variable

    • C.

      Confounding variable

    • D.

      Ecological variable

    Correct Answer
    A. Context variable
    Explanation
    Manipulating a student's chair in a classroom setting to avoid distraction from the window is an example of manipulating the context variable. In this scenario, the context variable refers to the physical environment or the specific conditions in which the behavior is occurring. By changing the placement of the chair, the teacher is modifying the context in order to create a more conducive learning environment and reduce distractions.

  • 2. 

    What is the most reasonable reinforcement method used for the development of stimulus control?

    • A.

      More frequent reinforcement of a target behavior in the presence of the discriminative stimulus than in the presence of the S-delta

    • B.

      Accidental reinforcement

    • C.

      The Premack Principle.

    • D.

      Extinction.

    Correct Answer
    A. More frequent reinforcement of a target behavior in the presence of the discriminative stimulus than in the presence of the S-delta
    Explanation
    The most reasonable reinforcement method used for the development of stimulus control is more frequent reinforcement of a target behavior in the presence of the discriminative stimulus than in the presence of the S-delta. This method involves reinforcing the desired behavior when the discriminative stimulus is present, while not reinforcing it when the S-delta is present. By consistently reinforcing the behavior in the presence of the discriminative stimulus, and not reinforcing it in the presence of the S-delta, the individual learns to associate the behavior with the discriminative stimulus and is more likely to perform the behavior in the appropriate context.

  • 3. 

    Select the schedule of reinforcement being used in the example:Jamie gets a candy bar after every 10 questions answered

    • A.

      Vr

    • B.

      Fi

    • C.

      Fr

    • D.

      Vi

    Correct Answer
    C. Fr
    Explanation
    In the given example, Jamie receives a candy bar after every 10 questions answered. This indicates a fixed ratio (FR) schedule of reinforcement. In FR schedules, reinforcement is provided after a fixed number of responses. In this case, the fixed number is 10 questions answered. This means that Jamie knows exactly how many questions they need to answer before receiving the candy bar, which can serve as a motivator to continue answering questions.

    Correct Answer
    B. Fi
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "fi" which stands for fixed interval. In this example, David is rewarded with going to the playroom after a fixed interval of 20 minutes of working on his spelling. This means that the reinforcement is delivered consistently after a set amount of time has passed, regardless of how many correct responses David has made.

    Select the schedule of reinforcement being used in the example:Shawn wants a new car so he checks the ebay website all day hoping to find the car he wants.

    • A.

      Vr

    • B.

      Fi

    • C.

      Fr

    • D.

      Vi

    Correct Answer
    A. Vr
    Explanation
    The correct answer is VR (Variable Ratio). In this example, Shawn is checking the eBay website all day hoping to find the car he wants. VR schedule of reinforcement is based on a variable number of responses, meaning that the reinforcement (finding the car he wants) is delivered after an unpredictable number of responses (checking the website). This schedule tends to result in high and steady rates of responding, as the individual is motivated to keep engaging in the behavior in the hopes of receiving reinforcement.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

     By altering a variable between a setting event and a behavior we are utilizing what dimension of behavior analysis?

    • A.

      Applied

    • B.

      Analytic

    • C.

      General

    • D.

      Social

    Correct Answer
    B. Analytic
    Explanation
    By altering a variable between a setting event and a behavior, we are utilizing the analytic dimension of behavior analysis. The analytic dimension focuses on identifying functional relationships between variables by systematically manipulating and measuring them. In this case, by altering a variable, we are able to determine if it has an effect on the behavior, allowing us to analyze and understand the relationship between the setting event and the behavior.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    When altering variables based on the identification of functional relations, caution should be take to

    • A.

      Avoid stengthening wanted behavior

    • B.

      Avoiding confounding variable

    • C.

      Avoid stenghtening unwanted behavior

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    C. Avoid stenghtening unwanted behavior
    Explanation
    When altering variables based on the identification of functional relations, it is important to avoid strengthening unwanted behavior. This means that any changes made should not unintentionally reinforce or increase behaviors that are considered undesirable or unwanted. Instead, the focus should be on identifying and strengthening behaviors that are desired or preferred. This caution ensures that the intervention or alteration of variables is effective in promoting positive outcomes and minimizing negative ones.

  • 8. 

    Which of the following is NOT  an example of an ecological strategy to evoke appropriate behaviors?

    • A.

      Providing choice

    • B.

      Task variation

    • C.

      Teaching to ask for breaks

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Teaching to ask for breaks
    Explanation
    Teaching to ask for breaks is not an example of an ecological strategy to evoke appropriate behaviors. Ecological strategies involve creating an environment that supports and encourages desired behaviors, such as providing choice and task variation. However, teaching someone to ask for breaks is more of a behavioral strategy that focuses on teaching an individual a specific behavior.

    Teacher wants to use incidental teaching to a student for the skill of washing hands. Which is the best example of how to do that

    • A.

      Set up trials for hand washing

    • B.

      Social story on hand washing

    • C.

      Take student outside to play in mud and then call for lunch

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Take student outside to play in mud and then call for lunch
    Explanation
    Taking the student outside to play in the mud and then calling for lunch is the best example of incidental teaching for the skill of washing hands. By allowing the student to get their hands dirty and then prompting them to wash their hands before eating, the teacher is creating a real-life situation where the skill of hand washing becomes relevant and necessary. This approach provides a natural opportunity for the student to practice and reinforce the skill in a meaningful context.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which of the following is NOT a procedure for determining a potential reinforcer for a student

    • A.

      Send a list of reinforcers to parent and have them complete and cirlcle choices

    • B.

      Have a set of reinforcers on a table and have student select

    • C.

      Conduct an interview with the student and talk bout choices

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    A. Send a list of reinforcers to parent and have them complete and cirlcle choices
    Explanation
    Sending a list of reinforcers to a parent for completion is not a procedure for directly determining a potential reinforcer for a student. The other options involve direct interaction with the student to assess their preferences and choices, which is more effective in understanding what might serve as a reinforcer.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    By selecting candy as a reinforcer and deciding that the child can have 3 pieces for every correct response. The teacher has utilized which parameter of reinforcement:

    • A.

      Timing

    • B.

      Quantity

    • C.

      Variety

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    B. Quantity
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "quantity" because the teacher has determined that the child will receive 3 pieces of candy for every correct response. This parameter of reinforcement focuses on the amount or number of reinforcers given in response to a behavior. In this case, the teacher is using the quantity of candy as a way to reinforce and increase the likelihood of the child's correct responses.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    The longer the latency of delivery of reinforcement the more likely

    • A.

      Behavior will be reinforced

    • B.

      Behavior will remain the same

    • C.

      Intervening response will be reinforced

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Intervening response will be reinforced
    Explanation
    When there is a longer latency of delivery of reinforcement, it means that there is a delay between the behavior and the reinforcement. In this case, it is more likely that an intervening response, which is a behavior that occurs during the delay period, will be reinforced. This is because the individual may engage in other behaviors while waiting for the reinforcement, and if any of these behaviors are reinforced, they are more likely to be repeated in the future. Therefore, the correct answer is that the intervening response will be reinforced.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Select the schedule of reinforcement being used in the example: Shawn wants a new car so he checks the paper once a day in the morning hoping to find the car he wants.

    • A.

      Vr

    • B.

      Fi

    • C.

      Fr

    • D.

      Vi

    Correct Answer
    B. Fi
    Explanation
    In this example, Shawn checks the paper once a day in the morning hoping to find the car he wants. This behavior is reinforced on a fixed interval (FI) schedule. The reinforcement is delivered after a fixed amount of time has passed since the last reinforcement, which in this case is once a day. Therefore, Shawn is checking the paper on a fixed interval schedule.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    By placing a limited hold on an intervals of reinforcement the following is possible:

    • A.

      Rate will increase

    • B.

      Rate will decrease

    • C.

      Rate will stay the same

    • D.

      Nothing will happen.

    Correct Answer
    A. Rate will increase
    Explanation
    By placing a limited hold on an interval of reinforcement, it means that the reinforcement will only be available for a specific period of time after the behavior occurs. This creates a sense of urgency and motivation for the individual to engage in the behavior more frequently and quickly in order to receive the reinforcement before the time limit expires. As a result, the rate of the behavior is likely to increase.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    By thinning a schedule of reinforecment gradually we actually avoid

    • A.

      Satiation

    • B.

      Decreased performance

    • C.

      Increased aggression

    • D.

      Increased performance

    Correct Answer
    B. Decreased performance
    Explanation
    Thinning a schedule of reinforcement gradually means reducing the frequency or intensity of rewards given for a particular behavior. This can lead to decreased performance because the individual may become less motivated to engage in the behavior if they are not receiving rewards as frequently. When rewards are less frequent, the behavior may not be reinforced enough to maintain its strength, resulting in a decrease in performance.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    We are using a crf-1 schedule we must be trying to do what to the behavior?

    • A.

      Reduce strength

    • B.

      Increase duration

    • C.

      First strengthen a low rate behavior

    • D.

      Decrease duration

    Correct Answer
    C. First strengthen a low rate behavior
    Explanation
    The use of a crf-1 schedule indicates that we are trying to first strengthen a low rate behavior. A crf-1 schedule, also known as a continuous reinforcement schedule, involves reinforcing a behavior every time it occurs. This is typically used when trying to establish a new behavior or increase the frequency of a behavior that is currently occurring at a low rate. By reinforcing the behavior every time it happens, we are aiming to increase its strength and likelihood of occurring in the future.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Jesse has been keeping his hands to himself in the classroom for most of the school year. Our best schedule of reinforcement would be the following:

    • A.

      Reward him with edible every time he shares without hitting

    • B.

      Suprise him with verbal praise when he shares

    • C.

      Ignore the behavior of sharing when it is shown

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Suprise him with verbal praise when he shares
    Explanation
    The best schedule of reinforcement in this situation would be to surprise Jesse with verbal praise when he shares. This is because Jesse has been keeping his hands to himself for most of the school year, indicating that he has already learned the appropriate behavior of not hitting. By providing verbal praise when he shares, it reinforces and encourages this positive behavior, making it more likely for Jesse to continue sharing without hitting in the future.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Jerry has to climb 25 stairs to get one drop of water. This is an example of

    • A.

      Satiation

    • B.

      Ratio strain

    • C.

      Great effort in responding with a low probability of the behavior occurring

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Great effort in responding with a low probability of the behavior occurring
    Explanation
    This scenario illustrates the concept of great effort in responding with a low probability of the behavior occurring. Jerry has to climb 25 stairs in order to obtain just one drop of water, indicating that he needs to put in a significant amount of physical effort. Additionally, the fact that he needs to climb so many stairs for just a small reward suggests that the behavior of climbing stairs has a low probability of occurring. Therefore, this situation exemplifies the idea of great effort in responding with a low probability of the behavior occurring.

    • B.

      DRH

    • C.

      DRO

    • D.

      ADF

    Correct Answer
    A. DRL
    Explanation
    Jerry can walk up to 800 stairs, but if he walks up 10 stairs or less, he will get a glass of water. The options given are DRL, DRH, DRO, and ADF. None of these options mention anything about walking up stairs or getting a glass of water. Therefore, it is not clear how the given information relates to the options. The question is incomplete or not readable, and an explanation cannot be generated.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    Jerry sits in a chair and is reinforced.

    • A.

      DRL

    • B.

      DRH

    • C.

      DRI

    • D.

      DRF

    Correct Answer
    C. DRI
    Explanation
    In this scenario, the correct answer is DRI. DRI stands for Differential Reinforcement of Incompatible behavior. This means that Jerry is being reinforced for engaging in a behavior that is incompatible with the behavior that is being targeted for reduction. Sitting in a chair is incompatible with engaging in a different behavior that needs to be reduced, and therefore, Jerry is being reinforced for sitting in the chair. This technique is commonly used in behavior modification to encourage desired behaviors while simultaneously reducing undesired behaviors.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    Which of the following is a guideline for the use of punsihment

    • A.

      Low intensity and high frequency

    • B.

      Reduce stimuli

    • C.

      Deliver high intensity every time it is given

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Deliver high intensity every time it is given
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "deliver high intensity every time it is given." This guideline suggests that punishment should be administered consistently and with a high level of intensity every time it is used. This approach aims to ensure that the punishment is effective in discouraging the undesired behavior. By consistently delivering a strong punishment, individuals are more likely to associate the negative consequences with their actions and be deterred from repeating them in the future.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    Billy states he did not know that he broke a rule because he could not see the rules. Upon your review you discover the rules were not clear in their writing. This demonstrates which variable affecting punsihment effectiveness:

    • A.

      Quantity of rules

    • B.

      Intensity of rule selection

    • C.

      Clarity of rules

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Clarity of rules
    Explanation
    This scenario demonstrates the variable of clarity of rules affecting punishment effectiveness. Billy claims that he did not know he broke a rule because he could not see the rules, indicating that the rules were not clearly written. This lack of clarity in the rules makes it difficult for individuals to understand and follow them, leading to ineffective punishment as people may unintentionally violate the rules due to their unclear nature.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Most to least prompting( fading out0
    Explanation
    This scenario describes the technique of most to least prompting (fading out). Graduated guidance involves providing varying levels of assistance based on the learner's needs, which is not explicitly mentioned in the scenario. Similarly, the option of least to most prompting (fading in) suggests starting with minimal assistance and increasing it gradually, which is not consistent with the scenario. Therefore, the best explanation is that the scenario demonstrates most to least prompting, where initially, the learner receives more guidance (touch on the shoulder and back) and gradually less guidance (just a hand in front pointing where to go).

    • A.

      Precision teaching

    • B.

      Keller Plan (PSI)

    • C.

      Discrete trials

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Keller Plan (PSI)
    Explanation
    The Keller Plan (PSI) would be the best choice for Mrs. Bones because it is a self-paced, individualized learning approach that allows students to progress at their own pace and explore their own interests. This method would provide the flexibility and freedom that Mrs. Bones desires, as it does not strictly follow a rigid curriculum.

    A task analysis involves breaking a chain into it's:

    • A.

      Task responses

    • B.

      Component responses

    • C.

      Behavioral responses

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Component responses
    Explanation
    A task analysis involves breaking a chain into its component responses. This means that the chain is broken down into its individual parts or steps, allowing for a detailed examination and understanding of each component's response or action. By analyzing the component responses, one can gain insight into the specific behaviors and actions required to complete the task effectively.

      Behavioral analysis

    • D.

      System analysis

    Correct Answer
    A. Task analysis
    Explanation
    Task analysis is the process of breaking down a complex task into its individual components or steps. It involves identifying the specific actions, skills, and knowledge required to complete a task successfully. By analyzing tasks, individuals or organizations can gain a better understanding of the requirements and can design effective training programs, create job aids, or improve task performance. Task analysis helps to ensure that tasks are performed accurately and efficiently, and it is widely used in fields such as instructional design, human factors engineering, and occupational therapy.

    Forward chaining, backward chaining and concurrent chaining are commonly used to teach

    • A.

      Complex behaviors

    • B.

      Simple behaviors

    • C.

      Individualized behaviors

    • D.

      Applied behavior

    Correct Answer
    A. Complex behaviors
    Explanation
    Forward chaining, backward chaining, and concurrent chaining are commonly used to teach complex behaviors. These chaining techniques involve breaking down complex behaviors into smaller, more manageable steps. Forward chaining involves teaching the initial steps of the behavior first, gradually adding on subsequent steps until the entire behavior is learned. Backward chaining starts with the final step of the behavior and works backward, teaching each step in reverse order. Concurrent chaining involves teaching multiple behaviors simultaneously and allowing the learner to choose which behavior to perform. These techniques are effective in teaching complex behaviors by systematically building upon simpler components.

    When teaching self control strategies control ultimately comes from

    • A.

      Environment

    • B.

      Self

    • C.

      Self and others

    • D.

      Others

    Correct Answer
    A. Environment
    Explanation
    When teaching self-control strategies, control ultimately comes from the environment. This means that external factors such as the physical surroundings, social influences, and situational contexts play a significant role in helping individuals develop and maintain self-control. The environment can provide cues, structure, and support that enable individuals to regulate their behavior and resist temptations. It can also offer opportunities for practicing self-control and reinforcing positive behaviors. By creating an environment that promotes self-control, individuals are more likely to succeed in managing their impulses and achieving their goals.

    Teacher wants to implement a token economy for her student Mike. The first step for teacher is to

    • A.

      Selection of tokens

    • B.

      Identification of target behavior

    • C.

      Creating menu of reinforcement

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Selection of tokens
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "selection of tokens". In a token economy system, tokens are used as a form of currency to reinforce desired behaviors. Therefore, the first step for the teacher would be to choose the specific tokens that will be used in the system. This involves selecting tokens that are desirable to the student and can be easily exchanged for rewards or privileges. Once the tokens are selected, the teacher can move on to identifying the target behavior to be reinforced and creating a menu of reinforcement options.

    Token economy programs are not static, but evolve and are revised depending on

    • A.

      Teacher discretion

    • B.

      Student performance

    • C.

      Time implemented

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Student performance
    Explanation
    Token economy programs are not static because they are designed to adapt and change based on various factors. One of these factors is student performance. The effectiveness of the program is evaluated based on how well students respond to it and whether it is helping them improve their behavior or achieve their goals. If student performance indicates that the program is not working effectively, adjustments can be made to improve it. Therefore, student performance is an important consideration in the evolution and revision of token economy programs.
