The Effects of Reinforcement Magnitude on Skill Acquisition for Children with Autism
Paden, Amber R.; Kodak, Tiffany
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v48 n4 p924-929 Dec 2015
We examined the effects of reinforcement magnitude on skill acquisition during discrete-trial training. After conducting a magnitude preference assessment, we compared acquisition during conditions with large and small magnitudes of edible reinforcement to a praise-only condition. Although all participants showed a preference for the large-magnitude reinforcer, preference did not predict the magnitude that produced the fastest skill acquisition.
