Evaluation Title: Operant Conditioning
The table below provides the four kinds of operant conditioning as they apply to dog training.
After reviewing these examples, create two examples from each category but apply them to human behavior.
- You will provide 2 examples of positive reinforcement;
- 2 examples of negative reinforcement;
- 2 examples of positive punishment and
