Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Guthrie's learning theory was based upon the idea that a stimulus followed by a certain response would, when the stimulus was repeated, elicit the same response. This would take place regardless of rewards or punishments.
The theory of operant conditioning. Skinners theory was based on modifying behaviour either through repeated actions or reinforcement. The theory follows steps to that of Ivan Pavlova. The acquisition rate of new skills and responses can support the theory.
