question 1: C. my reasoning: you said "stimulus/ reinforcer," and obviously reinforcement comes after the response
question 2: A

I don't mind :)

Each to their own. My teacher taught me something different and I'm confident in her knowledge so that's what I'm going with.

Just out of curiosity, how would all of you answer the following questions if they came up:

1) In operant conditioning the stimulus/reinforcer comes ___________ the response, while in classical conditioning the stimulus comes __________ the response.

A) Before; before
B) Before; after
C) After; before
D) After; after

2) In operant conditioning the stimulus comes ___________ the response, while in classical conditioning the stimulus comes __________ the response.

A) Before; before
B) Before; after
C) After; before
D) After; after

Haha I've seen those questions while doing past exams so I assume I know the practice exam answers, but personally, I would in
1. Say after, before, C (because it specifically says reinforcer).
2. Before, before, A. (because it says stimulus and not reinforcer)

Yeah, it'd have to depend on the wording of the question.

matt I think you and I use greatly different textbooks. unless you intentionally mispell "grivas" (no A after the R) then we're not using the same book.
hahaha, I can't help but imagine another, but fake textbook called gravias.

This was the answer to question 42 of the VCAA 2007 multiple choice:

The context of the previous two questions may have persuaded students to choose option B, which was incorrect. This question shows the importance of considering the A–B–C model proposed by Skinner describing operant conditioning: ‘A’ refers to the antecedent stimulus (Jamie’s father coming home in a good mood), leading to the ‘B’ (or behaviour) (asking to borrow the car) followed by the ‘C’ (or consequence) (getting permission to use the car). Jamie’s behaviour is as a result of stimulus discrimination (being able to differentiate his father’s moods).
