15:08 - Psychology 412 Quiz 4 (1pm class)


Welcome!  So the Old Man taught us much, and the Dr said this is what we had to know.

If you are viewing this JOHD entry, then you are doing so for the following reasons:

-you know me and reading about my life is an every day event for you
-you did a search some where on a web site and landed here
-you were aimlessly clicking links and found your way here
-YOU ARE A GRAND VIEW STUDENT TAKING PSYCHOLOGY 412: PSYCHOLOGY OF LEARNING AND HAVE DR HUISMAN FOR YOU ONE O'CLOCK CLASS.

If you are viewing for the last reason, I highly recommend that you read the following information.

The following poll is actually your Feb, Tuesday 11th quiz. PLEASE NOTE THAT I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ACURACY OF THESE QUESTIONS. THEY ARE ALL CORRECT TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE AND HAVE BEEN CHECKED FOR PROPER GRAMMAR AND SPELLING BUT SHOULD A WORD GET TWISTED AROUND AND CHOOSE YOU TO PICK THAT ANSWER ON YOUR QUIZ YOU DO NOT HOLD THE AUTHOR, Madd Martin, RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR GRADE. However, should you ace thanks to this study guide I am more than happy to take full credit for it :D

I *highly* recommend that everyone actually take the poll, and to DISCUSS by clicking the link "Talk to JOHD, click here!". Should you see "x JOHD chats" where X is a number, then it means X people have made a comment. If you followed through the email you should see this in the upper left hand side. If you wondered through the web it is most likely in the lower right. Among things you should attempt to do is BACK YOUR INFORMATION UP WITH PAGE NUMBERS. As an example, answer A to question one is defined on 346 and defines it as Hull's learning theory. Does Hull and Skinner have something in common?

ALSO note that I do ALL of my studying for this class after the hour of 10:30 AM or so, depending when Dr Hanson lets us out of his class. I go straight home and hit the computer for studies. For anyone who can attend, realize I can study with any and all of you through the following means, and in this preference:

My Web Chat - CLICK HERE (the link is "Maddian Chat Room")
AIM - madd74 / chatroom PSYCHO412
MSN - madd74@msn.com
Yahoo - maddmartin74

The reason I have my chat room first is because no special programs or anything else is required, and I am not sure how many of you humans out there have what programs. If you can surf the net, then you can use the chat program. I will have it open as soon as possible. PLEASE NOTE that there is a possibility you will only see a grey box where your name and "profile" should go. Should you see it for about 20 or so seconds, start to click on the box and it should show up. I should really update my web site and put on a DECENT chat program {sigh}.

AIM USERS!! Note that at ANY TIME you can join chatroom PSYCHO412 and you should notice madd74 in there. I am now leaving this chat open INDEFINITELY or at least until the end of the semester, so, anyone with AIM who wants to talk about this class feel free to stop in. Since I have DSL and leave my computer on, I may simply not be at home so if you see only me in there and no comments, I am not ignoring you.

Final note: if you are NOT a student in this class, PLEASE do not actually vote until at least AFTER the quiz. Quiz time is at 1PM central standard time on Tuesday 11th.

So now that all the legal, technical, and introduction BS is out of the way, I present to you, QUIZ 4. Happy studies.

-Madd Martin

1]Skinner:
A)p93 "Behavior is noe of those subject matters which do not call for hypothetico-deductive methods."

D)p93 "He thought Hull's use of intervening variables wasteful and fruitless.

2]Changing TV, getting food

CORRECTION TO ANSWER 4!!

(Link)
all the following EXCEPT, my error... answer should be 2 as sockie24 commented, since the other three are rewards (since I actually defined answer A). 3 is a reward since you are GIVING, and 4 is a reward since it is a treat, B is giving something back and that would be like page 101 when sam's ears are released... a relief
