What was the aim?
To test the levels of process theory by investigating whether words processed at different levels would affect recognition
1 of 10
How many participants were there?
24
2 of 10
How many words were there to remember?
60
3 of 10
How were they shown?
Through a tachistoscope
4 of 10
Give an example of a question asked on the STRUCTURAL processing of the word
Was the word in upper or lower case letters? (or anything about the typescript)
5 of 10
Give an example of a question asked on the PHONETIC processing of the word
Does the word rhyme with...? (or any sort of rhyming question)
6 of 10
Give an example of a question asked on the SEMANTIC processing of the word
Does the word fit into the following sentence? ... (Or any sort of filling in the blank questions)
7 of 10
How many words were there in the list where participants had to identify the original 60 from?
180
8 of 10
What were the results?
17% of the words were recognised at a STRUCTURAL level, 36% for words at a PHONETIC level, and 65% for words processed at a SEMANTIC level
9 of 10
And the conclusions?
The deeper the processing, the better the recognition. Which meant the words that were processed at a semantic level were recalled best and the results support the levels of processing theory
