RBT Practice Test 2


What type of consequential operation occurs when a stimulus is added to theenvironment and results in a decrease in behavior over time?

Correct! Wrong!

Correct answer: Positive Punishment

The terms "positive" and "negative" are used to describe how the environment changes. Positive refers to the addition of a stimulus to the environment, whereas negative refers to the removal of a stimulus. Both positive and negative punishment, as well as positive and negative reinforcement, are possible.

Mass trials are represented by which of the following?

Correct! Wrong!

Correct answer: A therapist continuously shows the same SD to a student, encouraging the same specific conduct trial after trial until the student completes 5 requested right trials in a row.

The same SD is shown repeatedly with prompting if necessary to obtain a specific response in mass trials. This is typically done to increase condition discrimination acquisition by repeated exposure to a reinforcing situation.

What does the term "response latency" mean?

Correct! Wrong!

Correct answer: The delay of time between a stimulus and a given response.

The delay between a given stimulus and a reaction is referred to as response latency.

Reinforcers that get their reinforcing properties by combining with another reinforcer are referred to as _________________.

Correct! Wrong!

Correct answer: Conditioned

When paired with other conditioned or unconditioned reinforcers, conditioned reinforcers obtain their reinforcing properties.

What are the four behavioral functions?

Correct! Wrong!

Correct answer: Sensory, Escape, Attention, and Tangibles

The following are the four functions of behavior:
Escape - delaying or completely avoiding a non-preferred stimulus
Automatic Reinforcement (Sensory) - actions that create their own result without the involvement of another person, such as drinking from a cup, reading a book, or scratching an itch.
Attention - receiving engagement or shared activity from another person.
Tangible - receiving stuff from another individual

Which of the following are examples of preference evaluations used by behavior analysts to identify lists of appetitive stimuli?

Correct! Wrong!

Correct answer: Multiple Stimulus Without Replacement (MSWO)

Multiple stimulus without replacement (MSWO) is a preference assessment that analysts typically use to build preference hierarchies for people whose preferences are unclear or difficult to identify.

Which of the following types of Continuous data collecting methods are you familiar with?

Correct! Wrong!

Correct answer: Frequency

Continuous measurement data gathering systems record every occurrence of an interest behavior. Frequency, Inter-Response Time, and Duration are examples of typical continuous measuring methods.

Which antecedent raises or diminishes a consequence's value?

Correct! Wrong!

Correct answer: Motivating Operation

Motivating operations are further subdivided depending on their value-altering effect: Establishing Operations raise the value of a result, whereas Abolishing Operations decrease it.
