Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Two groups of subjects learned a list of 12 CVC pairs, and were then tested by either recognition or recall. Analyses were made of retention as a function of mediated or rote learning under each condition. Items that were learned with mediators had a greater probability of being correct than items learned by rote under both testing procedures. There is discussion concerning the complexities of the recognition process.
