Matching to sample is a form of conditional discrimination. In this form of conditional discrimination procedure, only one of two or more stimuli presented on other comparison keys from the sample, shares some property (e.g., shape). Responses to the similar stimulus are reinforced. In oddity matching, a form of matching-to-sample, responses to the comparison stimulus that does not match the sample are reinforced.
