Learning Graphs?

4.B says something like students should be able to interpret graphs from learning experiments? I don’t really understand what that means…

probably like identifying an independent and dependent variable and recognizing standard deviation…that is just my opinion though?

If you can interpret a graph, you can interpret it in most any context. However, I am guessing that the students are alluding to graphs of response rates based on reinforcement or punishment.

Something like the graph 3/4 of the way down the page at this site: https://2012books.lardbucket.org/books/beginning-psychology/s11-02-changing-behavior-through-rein.html

It shows responding rates for different schedules of reinforcement.

Hey there! It’s Riya, a member of Team Fiveable here! So, for this one, I believe it’s just interpreting graphs to show that they support something in a learning experiment. For example, they could show a graph of something and ask to interpret it in the context of a specific psychology concept!

Also, be able to identify correlations from scatter plots.
