ANALYSIS OF PROCESSES IN PAIRED-ASSOCIATE LEARNING.
BATTIG, WILLIAM F.
THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS STUDY WERE--(1) TO DEFINE AND ISOLATE THE BASIC PROCESSES INVOLVED IN PAIR-ASSOCIATE LEARNING, (2) TO SPECIFY THE IMPORTANT VARIABLES RELATED TO THESE PROCESSES AND THE CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH EACH BECOMES IMPORTANT, (3) AND TO DEFINE AND ASSESS THE IMPORTANCE OF THE ASSOCIATION FORMATION PROCESS IN PAIRED-ASSOCIATE LEARNING TASKS. THE PROGRAM INVOLVED THREE PHASES. IN PHASE I A PAIRED-ASSOCIATE LEARNING TASK WAS DEVELOPED IN WHICH THE "ASSOCIATION FORMATION" PROCESS HAD BEEN ISOLATED. IN PHASE II THE ROCK PARADIGM AS MODIFIED BY THE INVESTIGATOR WAS USED TO INVESTIGATE THE ROLE OF REPETITION IN LEARNING THE PAIRED-ASSOCIATE TASK OR TASKS WHICH HAD BEEN DEVELOPED IN PHASE I. A LIST CONSISTING OF TWO SETS OF STIMULUS-RESPONSE PAIRS WAS USED. ALL PAIRS OF ONE SET. THE CONTROL SET, WERE RETAINED IN THE LIST OF ALL LEARNING TRIALS. PAIRS OF THE EXPERIMENTAL SET WERE RETAINED IN THE LIST ONLY IF THE CORRECT RESPONSE WAS GIVEN. IN NOT, THEY WERE REPLACED IN THE LIST BY NEW PAIRS WHICH HAD NOT PREVIOUSLY BEEN SEEN. ON THE BASIS OF THE PRESENT RESULTS, THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT EITHER PAIRED-ASSOCIATE LEARNING IN GENERAL OR ANY COMPONENT PROCESS THEREOF TAKES PLACE COMPLETELY IN ALL-OR-NONE FASHION IN A SINGLE TRIAL, EITHER TYPICALLY OR NECESSARILY.
