Welcome ~ From the Editor

Welcome to the MERLOT Psychology Portal! The Psychology collection provides access to nearly 20 different types of materials (including online texts and online courses) across 15 psychology disciplines. The MERLOT Psychology Editorial Board manages the collection and oversees a peer review process that evaluates the applicability of the materials within the collection. We invite you to explore all that our collection has to offer. Our Board strives to review every Learning Object (LO) submitted for review. We have a multi-level review process for each LO, and use a standardized review form in assessing all LOs submitted to the Psychology collection.

Developed by Athabasca University's (Canada) Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, the tutorial introduces students to the definition of positive reinforcement and provides an opportunity for them to participate in a two-part exercise that takes .5 to 1.5 hours to complete.
