Imagery in Transfer.
Davidson, Robert E.; Levin, Joel R.
Second- and fourth-grade children learned two 25-item, paired-associate mixed lists under three experimental conditions: instructed imagery, imposed imagery, and control. Four specific transfer paradigms and a reference paradigm were represented in the lists. The specific transfer paradigms were constructed such that a first list stimulus term (a pictured, multiple-meaning word) was represented in a second list as an identity or changed with respect to its image, function, or meaning. Analysis of the specific effects revealed monotone-decreasing negative transfer across the change paradigms. The effect was more pronounced for second-grade subjects. (Author)
