Trial and error

Observational learning or cognitive

Insight learning

Learning by conditioning

Classical conditioning

Instrumental conditioning

Operant conditioning

Trial and error | Learning in psychology

•It is the method in which the on successful activities are left and the successful activities are continued. Trial and error needs little intelligence. The lower animals purely learn by it.

•It is basically the method used by the animals but the human beings especially children use the method of trial and error in learning and new task.

Observational or cognitive Learning- Two Cats | Learning in psychology

•Cognitive learning is also observational learning. It involves various mental processes to recognize things and to retain them in memory and to select the important.

Insight learning | Learning in psychology

•Kohler is famous for learning by Insight. He conducted experiments on monkeys and proved that higher animals make use of their intelligence as the situation provides them a chance to utilize it. He hung a bunch of Bananas with the rope in the ceiling and kept it box nearby. he provided in nature environment to the monkeys. Send the monkeys in that room and how monkeys try to get Bananas. Soon the monkeys saw the box and he dragged it, placed beneath the Bananas climbed up the box and got the Bananas.

It proved by the observation and experiments that human learning is based more on Intelligence then on trial and error.

Summative assessments – tests, quizzes, and other graded course activities that are used to measure student performance. They are cumulative and often reveal what students have learned at the end of a unit or the end of a course. Within a course, summative assessment includes the system for calculating individual student grades. 

Formative assessment  – any means by which students receive input and guiding feedback on their relative performance to help them improve. It can be provided face-to-face in office hours, in written comments on assignments, through rubrics, and through emails.
