Q10. The S—shaped curve indicates
(a) greatest amount of improvement in the first few trials
(b) the representation of the entire learning process
(c) greatest amount of improvement during the last few trials
(d) prior familiarity with the task


S1. Ans.(a)
Sol.Negatively accelerated learning cure or convex curve: Convex shaped is called a negatively accelerated learning curve or simply as a convex curve. It rapid initial improvement in learning that slows down with time.
Positively accelerated learning curve or concave curve: Concave shaped curve B is called a positively accelerated learning curve or simply a concave curve. It depicts slow initial improvement in learning that increases with time ultimately leading towards the mastery over the learning material.
Combination type of curve or concave or concave-convex curve: The third curve C which involves a combination of two – concave and convex curve is known as S – curve. Such curve may take concave or convex shape in the beginning depending upon the nature of the learner, learning material and the learning environment and are generally obtained in the situations where we study the entire learning of a task from zero performance to its mastery.
