Suggests that J. Staddon and S. Motheral's (see record 1979-22914-001) mathematical model of responding in concurrent VI-VI schedules ignores the fact that there are 2 simultaneously available schedules, and thus a reinforcer can occur in 2 ways. Staddon and Motheral's failure to distinguish between these 2 possibilities leads to an incorrect estimate of the expected reinforcement rate.
