Preference Assessments vs. Reinforcer Assessments


The statement provided in the question: Preference assessments and reinforcer assessments are NOT the same thing, is A. True. Preference assessments involve a variety of methods used to determine a list of potential reinforcers that an individual may find enjoyable or motivating. These methods can include asking the person, providing a choice between options, or observing the person's interaction with different items or activities. On the other hand, reinforcer assessments involve a data-driven process to empirically test whether the items or activities identified as preferred actually serve to increase the frequency of a target behavior, thereby validating them as effective reinforcers.
