1935. You have been provided the z-scores of three individuals. Person A received a z-score of 1.0, Person B received a z-score of 0, and Person C received a z-score of -1.0. Using Figure 3.8 in the Gregory text (p. 80), indicate each individual's score as a T score, CEEB score, IQ score, and approximate percentile score. Once you have indicated these transformed scores, in 1-2 pages, describe why it is possible to easily convert standard scores from one scale to another. Include in your answer the mean and standard deviation of each of the transformed scores and the theoretical rationale for their equivalency.(Answered)

2031. One common association that people have is called conditioned taste aversion, which occurs when you eat or drink something and then get sick. A conditioned taste aversion is most likely to occur when the food or drink is relatively unfamiliar. Suppose you have acquired a conditioned taste aversion to tequila. Identify the unconditioned stimulus, unconditioned response, conditioned stimulus, and conditioned response in this example. Next, write down an example of something you have learned recently that involves operant conditioning. Provide a clear description of the behavior that is being conditioned, describe and label the reinforcer (positive or negative) influencing the behavior, and specify the schedule of reinforcement involved in this behavior.

1st Part:
With respect to the taste aversion part of the question, it's important to clearly distinguish a) the unconditioned stimulus from the conditioned stimulus, and b) the unconditioned response from the conditioned response. Remember, the unconditioned response does not need to be the same as the conditioned response.
1 point for correct UCS, 1 point for correct UCR, 1 point for correct CR, and 1 point for correct UCR.
2nd Part:
Write down an example of something you have learned recently that involves operant conditioning. Provide a clear description of the behavior that is being conditioned, describe and label the reinforcer (i.e., it is either positive or negative) influencing the behavior , and specify the schedule of reinforcement involved in this behavior.(Answered)
