TRIAL-AND-ERROR LEARNING

a form of learning wherein the living being consecutively attempts many different reactions within a circumstance, seemingly at random, until one is successful in churning out the objective.

TRIAL-AND-ERROR LEARNING: "With regard to successive trials, the excelling reaction arises earlier and earlier, maze learning, with its ultimate deletion of blind-alley entrances, is an example of trial-and-error learning. "
