I'm writing a 750 word essay on critically evaluating the method bandura used in his bobo doll study to test social learning theory.
one of bandura's articles states: "These findings highlighted both the importance of distinguishing between learning and performance and the need for a systematic study of whether reinforcement is primarily a learning related or a performance-related variable. "

so I was wondering, what is the difference between learning and performance in social learning theory?

In social learning theory, as opposed to behaviourism, a person can learn things through observation but they do not necessarily change their behaviour based on what has been learned. Performance refers to the imitation of the actual behaviour. Therefore, Bandura differentiates between learning without performance and imitation/performance of the learned behaviour.
