Psyco 350 Lec #10 – Slide 1 Mid-term Info Time: 1 hr Format –multiple choice questions Number of items: 15 Value: 1 point/question –Short Answer: Number: Choice 5 (from 6 possible) questions Value: 2 points/questions
Psyco 350 Lec #10 – Slide 2 Example: MC Questions Why does digit span increase with age? 1. Adults process numbers more deeply 2. Adults have more slots in STM than children. 3. Adults have more experience with numbers than children. 4. Adults speak faster than children. 5. Adults have longer attention spans than children How does overlearning affect the forgetting curve? 1. Information becomes more available, causing forgetting to lessen. 2. Too much information bombards the system, causing forgetting to increase. 3. Overlearning causes forgetting to lessen briefly, but later increase rapidly with a sharp incline. 4. Overlearning does not affect forgetting. ======================.
Psyco 350 Lec #10 – Slide 3 Example: Short-Answer Questions 1. Briefly describe the method employed in the Brown-Petersen task and the main finding. (b) Initially, this task was thought to measure the duration of unrehearsed information in STM. Research by Keppel and Underwood call this interpretation into question. Briefly describe their key finding (hint: a relation between trial and performance) and identify the forgetting mechanism it implies. 2. Briefly, describe two lines of research that support Baddeley’s contention that he phonological loop does, in fact, rely on a phonological code
