Fixed interval (FI) schedule when a reinforcer is given only when a correct response is made after a set amount of time has passed since the last reinforced response. Responses made during the time interval are not reinforced. Fixed interval (FI) schedule also refers to a schedule in which reinforcement is contingent upon the first response after a fixed, predictable period of time.
