What was the aim?
to see whether recall ability would differ when words were to be remembered in the same environment than in a different environment
1 of 10
Describe the sample.
18 university diving club members
2 of 10
Describe the method.
given a list of 38 unrelated 2 or 3 syllable words presented in blocks of 3 with a 4 second delay between each block and the lists were repeated twice. There was then a 4 minute delay before the Ptps had to recall the words
3 of 10
What were the 2 conditions?
recall in the same environment, and recall in different environments
4 of 10
What were the 4 levels of the IV?
-land/water. -land/land. -water/land. -water/water.
5 of 10
What did the recognition test control?
the possibility that there was a decline in the accuracy for recall was due to disruptive change in environments
6 of 10
Describe the results.
the accuracy of recall was not affected by where the words were learnt, and 40% more words were forgotten when recall took place in the opposite place to being learnt
7 of 10
Describe the conclusion.
context cues enhance recall
8 of 10
Give three strengths.
-good ecological validity. -Ptps gave informed consent. -it was well controlled.
9 of 10
Give two weaknesses.
-Ptps could have cheated whilst underwater. -lack of standardisation reduces reliability (weather/fitness).
