The ABC model of operant conditioning

Hey it's me again  :D

I need help with this question:

"Miss K is a year 12 psychology teacher. On Friday, she sets her class homework to complete over the weekend. She tells her class if they do not complete the homework they will receive an after school detention.
In terms of the three phase model of operant conditioning, name and identify each of the three phases as they relate to the scenario. "

My answer was: Antecedent - Miss K setting homework on Friday, Behaviour - students do not complete homework, Consequence - students receive after school detention.

The answer actually is: Antecedent - Miss K setting homework on Friday, Behaviour - students complete homework, Consequence - students do not receive after school detention.

I'm just wondering why? And are there some more examples of these types of questions that I could do since it's something I am getting consistently wrong :'( ?

Hey Rani, I don't think your answer is necessarily wrong. It's just the opposite situation of what the solutions are given, so I wouldn't be too concerned about it. It may be easier to justify a behaviour if it actually happens rather than doing that lack of an action. i.e. doing homework or doing not the homework (I can't seem to put it in words. Anyway, I would just try to answer it as when the individual does the action rather than not doing the action (in this case, the homework). However, it really shouldn't matter too much, so don't stress :)

Hey :)

I imagine it would been phrased that way because:
- doing homework is a behaviour rather than an absence of action
- doing homework is the desired/conditioned behaviour

Thank you guys! It makes more sense now - I've always been doing it the other way around  :)
