The rule that specifies the timing and frequency of reinforcement is called reinforcement schedule. The reinforcement can be classified under following topics;
1)Continuous reinforcement: Its reinforcement which occur after each response for positive activity of a person.
2)Fix ratio schedule: Its a reinforcement which occurs after a fix number of response of response have been emitted since the previous reinforcement.
3)Variable ratio schedule: The ratio which occur after a variable number of response have been emitted since the previous reinforcement.
4)Fix interval schedule: Its a reinforcement which occur following in the first response after a fixed time has elapsed after a previous reinforcement.
5)Variable interval schedule: The reinforcement which occur following the first response after a variable time has elapsed from the previous reinforcement.
