|Problem solving difficulty from unrecognized equivalency
||Equivalency occurs in problem solving when a single state can be represented by multiple configurations. If unrecognized, multiple equivalent states can be perceived as new, unique states. This confusion can hinder problem solving. Three experiments ...
|Assessing summary writing as a memory strategy
||Writing a summary has been described as the most effective text-retention strategy. However, a review of the literature suggests that existing experiments on summarizing fail to include some of the most productive methods for improving text-retention...
|Assessing temporal associations in recall: a new take on the strategy disruption account of the part-set cuing effect
||Presentation of cues during recall impairs recall of non-cued items (part-set cuing effect). Assessment of retrieval strategies (i.e. temporal associations) within the part-set cuing paradigm can lead to a better understanding of the mechanisms under...
|Does the testing effect impact favorability judgments?
||Delayed recall of material is better when the material is retrieved on a previous occasion relative to when the material is restudied -- a phenomenon known as the testing effect. The studies reported here aimed to better understand the link between a...
