    Unit 4 Assessment

    Skinner’s theory of reinforcement provides the best knowledge on how psychologists can
    assess the effectiveness of reinforcement. According to this theory, psychologists can assess the
    effectiveness of reinforcement based on how behavior is repeated or stopped (Lauby &
    American Society for Training and Development, 2005). There are various types of
    reinforcement. However, positive reinforcement is likely to persist the longest ad yield long term
    impacts. This is because positive reinforcement allows the parties involved to focus on the
    positive aspects of a situation and enhances empowerment.
    I understand learning as the process of acquiring new skills and ideas through
    experience. Socialization or being taught (Bransford & National Research Council, 2004). There
    are several skills that I have learned just because of associating with other people. For instance. I
    believe I learned to play the guitar because associating with friends who used to play music in a
    band. When we relocated to a new neighborhood, I became friends with two brothers who were
    playing in a rock band. I was able to learn how to play the guitar from them.
    There are different ways that I study for examination; for instance, I use the selfexplanation method, which involves explaining to myself and others what I have learned. I also
    use practice testing method in which I repeatedly take a relevant test to confirm the level of my
    knowledge. Finally, I have been using distributed practice method which involves study over a
    long period (Winerman, 2019). Of all these methods I have realized that self-explanation is the
    best method because as I explain what I have learned to others, they stick on my mind


    Question 4

    There are three basic systems of memory, including encoding storage and retrieval
    (Byrne, 2009). Encoding is the process through which we upload information into our memory
    which is through the senses. For example, we see and experience a situation such as accidents.
    Once the information has been encoded, we have to retain it. Our brains take the information and
    permanently record it. After the information has been stored, we can get it back from memory
    through conscious awareness. This would be similar to finding a paper that had been previously
    saved (Byrne, 2009).

    experience, and school. Washington, DC: National Acad. Press.

BUL 3130 Case Assignment

APA style.

A water pipe burst in the basement of Superfast, a grocery store, flooding the basement and damaging cases of canned goods on the floor. The plumbing contractor’s workmen, in repairing the leak, knocked over several stacks of canned goods in cases, denting the cans. After cleaning up, Superfast put the goods on special sale.

Four weeks later Susan was shopping in Superfast. Several tables in the market were covered with assorted canned goods, all of which were dirty and dented. A sign on each of the tables read: “Damaged Cans – Half Price.”

Susan was having Guest for dinner that evening and purchased dented two cans of chicken, packed by Cansco, from one of the tables displaying the damaged cans. Before Guest arrived, Susan prepared a chicken pot pie which she and Guest ate. Both became ill and the medical testimony established that the illness was caused by the chicken being unfit for human consumption. The cans of chicken consumed by Susan and Guest came from the case that was at the top of one of the stacks knocked over by the workmen.

Susan asserts a claim against Cansco based on negligence, what results? Although Guest may have a case against Superfast, and the plumbing workmen may have some responsibility, you are only to discuss Susan’s claim against Cansco. What are the defenses which Cansco may raise?

Find three cases that support Cansco’s defense in this case. Write a short essay (minimum 500 word) defending Cansco. Cite to your supporting cases by comparing and contrasting the similarities and/or differences between those cases and Cansco’s case.

Chapter 9

discussed the importance of stakeholder engagement in policy making. The author presented several benefits and an analysis of five cases in which stakeholder engagement added value to the policy making process. If you were leading a project to develop a comprehensive policy for managing pedestrian traffic flow in a popular downtown metropolitan district, what measures would you take to engage stakeholders in that project? Your answer should outline your suggestions and clearly explain why each one would add value.

To complete this assignment, you must do the following:

A) Create a new thread. As indicated above, you will assume the role of project manager of a project to develop a comprehensive policy for managing pedestrian traffic flow in a popular downtown metropolitan district, what measures would you take to engage stakeholders in that project? Your answer should identify the project stakeholders, outline your suggestions and clearly explain why each one would add value.

B) Select AT LEAST 3 other students’ threads and post substantive comments on those threads, evaluating the pros and cons of that student’s recommendations. Your comments should extend the conversation started with the thread.

ALL original posts and comments must be substantive. (I’m looking for about a paragraph – not just “I agree.”)

NOTE: These discussions should be informal discussions, NOT research papers. If you MUST directly quote a resource, then cite it properly. However, I would much rather simply read your words.

confidentiality and integrity of organizational information resources and assets.
