Increasing a behavior and decreasing a behavior data sheet

Use this data sheet when you want to increase a behavior at the same time that you want to decrease a behavior.  Doing so on the same data sheet allows you to easily see if your student is making progress.  For example suppose a student is calling out in class and you would like them to raise their hand instead of calling out.  If you only track calling out you will not know if they made any progress with raising their hand.  You can download this data sheet here.

Symmetry

Symmetry if A = B then B = A.  The learner is taught when presented with the picture grapes (sample stimulus A) to select the written word grapes (sample stimulus B).  When presented with the written word grapes (sample stimulus B), without additional training or reinforcement, the learner selects the picture of grapes (sample stimulus A).  Applied Behavior Analysis (2nd Edition)

Reflexivity

Reflexivity is also known as generalized identity matching.  In the above example if you are able to select a picture of a bike as the missing picture you would be demonstrating reflexivity if you also had no prior matching training or reinforcement for doing so.  Applied Behavior Analysis (2nd Edition)
