Step Two €“ Determine Appropriate Reinforcers. Define reinforcers,  and explain the reinforcers that you have selected for the desired  behavioral outcome for Rad. Include the primary reasons why the selected  reinforcers are appropriate for Rad, you (the Instructor), and the  environment.

Step Four €“ Implement Procedures and Record Results. Discuss the  implementation of the procedures that you chose in Step 3, and create  fictional results. Explain the method(s) that you used to observe the  results.
Step Five €“ Evaluate and Revise. Discuss the method(s) that you used  to evaluate the effectiveness of your desired behavioral change in Rad,  and determine the major revisions you may consider to your program in  the future.
