Both Goden&Baddeley and Carter&Cassaday's reseach support the theory of retrieval failure.
- This strength increases the validity of the explnation, especially because results occur the same in the real-life application and lab control.
- context effects are not that strong in real life.
- the contexts have to be completely different- to be effective. (land and water, reseacrch by Baddeley)
Using two different rooms for learning and recall is not enough
Limitation- real life applications do not explain much forgetting.
ESP is not testable- creates circular reasning.
We assume that cues are encoded at the same time as retrieval, yet there is no one way to establish if the cue was encoded or not.
