Memory Attributes: Some Directions for Further Research and Implications for Education. Report from the Situational Variables and Efficiency of Concept Learning Project.
Ghatala, Elizabeth Schwenn
The conceptualization of memory as consisting of a collection of attributes was explored. Underwood's (1969) work on attributes of memory was reviewed. Following this, several paradigms for further research were suggested. One research paradigm dealt with individual differences and memory attributes. It was suggested that individuals may differ in the extent to which they develop or utilize certain types of attributes. A second research paradigm dealt with the types of organization imposed by a subject during the learning of a list of verbal items. Finally, some selected research on second-order storage and retrieval plans was reviewed. Implications of research on memory attributes for education were discussed. (Author)
