If operant conditioning (OC), identify which type of consequence was responsible for the behavior change (i.e., positive/negative reinforcement; positive/negative punishment). EXPLAIN WHY! For example: What is being given or take way? What is increasing or decreasing?
3. If classical conditioning (CC), identify the UCS, UCR, NS, CS, and CR.
