In learning intermittant reinforcement or partial reinforcement reflects real life where actions are perfomed and are not continuously reinforced.

In the context of the laboratory intermittent schedules of reinforcement are all those where some responses go unreinforced.

Intermittant reinforcement leads to learning that is more resistant to extinction.
