Approach used by behavioral psychologists to influence behavior, performance, and learning, based on one basic assumption: behavior is a function of its consequences. It is usually based on the reinforcement of desired behaviors, which represent a significant consequence for the learner, and ignoring (as far as possible) undesired ones. In the conventional learning situation it applies largely to issues of group and learners management, rather than to learning content.[1] See also: Behaviorism
