All reversals were trained with continuous reinforcement and a fading procedure familiar to subjects from extensive preliminary training.
The degree of intermittency changes under differential reinforcement with a fixed criterion, beginning near extinction if few criterial responses occur initially, proceeding through a richer ratio, and, finally, approximating continuous reinforcement when most responses meet the criterion.

Extending this finding, Stebbins and Reynolds (1964) compared latencies under the continuous reinforcement and extinction components of a multiple schedule.
The results indicated that (a) lead-exposed animals that had received continuous reinforcement extinguished more rapidly than did non-lead-exposed animals that had received continuous reinforcement, and (b) lead-exposed animals that had received partial reinforcement training extinguished more slowly than did non-lead-exposed animals that had received partial reinforcement training.

Schwartz (1982) employed two schedules of reinforcement, continuous reinforcement (CRF) and partial reward 50% (PR50), while testing human subjects for sequential stereotypy.
