The maintenance of behavior can also be enhanced through the manipulation of the reinforcement schedule
during and after initially training the response.
Regarding the themes dealt with, Serrano, Sosa and Gonzalez present the results of the research where the objective was to evaluate the development of stimulus control under a reinforcement schedule
temporarily defined, finding that the limited availability of strengthening programs defined temporarily prevents stimulus control, and that this control takes place without behavioral patterns derived from the sequential regularity between sub-cycles.
The students receive tokens on an intermittent reinforcement schedule
for being on-task, displaying compliant behavior, or for the completion of academic assignments.
Arvey and Ivancevich (1980) found that, in most organizations, future rewards tend to be administered to members of a culture on a variable ratio reinforcement schedule

All other components of timed practice on that skill remain constant: reinforcement schedule

Furthermore, while in laboratory and clinical settings, behavior on a continuous reinforcement schedule
will fairly often be employed in certain circumstances, one rarely finds them occurring in natural settings.
A dense reinforcement schedule
for replacement behavior is contrived in one condition.
2005), N trials resulted in a sharp decline in goal tracking times for the two groups exposed to the partial reinforcement schedule
