Evaluation of Duration

HideShow resource information
How is duration measured
tested by recognition opposed to recall
1 of 11
Through learning, more likely to hold information in a perminant store if learnt well in 1st place
and continue to learn about related material in the interval
2 of 11
Bahrick and Hall
tested LTM for algebra and geomatry
3 of 11
Bahrick and Hall found that...
PPTS who had only taken maths to a high school level showed decine in accuract of recall compared to degree level
4 of 11
Encoding of LTM
Baddeley investigated encoding LTM in STM
5 of 11
Cat / Mat study
Findings contrast with conclusions of STM using mainly accoustic coding
6 of 11
LTM condition:
there was a delay of 20 minutes between hearing the list and recall
7 of 11
Conclusion:
that LTM primarily makes use of semantic coding shown by PPTS difficulties in recalling correct order of words with similar meanings
8 of 11
Evaluation:
other factors affecting encoding in LTM
9 of 11
acoustic encoding:
our ability to recognise sounds eg police sirens shows that humans can store info/ material in acoustic form
10 of 11
Visual encoding:
pictorial images can easily be brought to mind of people suggesting that there is some visual encoding in LTM
