    Fixed-ratio schedules – reinforcement is given after a fixed number of responses. This schedule tends to produce a high response rate that is vigorous and steady.

    Fixed-interval schedules – reinforcement is given after a specified time or period, measured from the last reinforced response. Under a fixed-interval schedule there is an uneven pattern that varies from a slow response immediately following reinforcement to a vigorous response immediately preceding reinforcement.

    Variable-ratio schedules – reinforcement is given after a randomly varied number of responses. Each response has an equal chance of being reinforced regardless of the number of responses that have preceded it.

    Variable-interval schedules – reinforcement is given after a randomly distributed length of time.
