response hierarchy

Alternative reactions or modes of adjustment to a given situation arranged in the probable order of prior effectiveness; e.g., a mother attempting to discipline an unruly child may first request, cajole, then plead, scold, and finally punish; her behaviours can be ordered along a response hierarchy for further monitoring of effectiveness.
