Paired-Associate Learning by Institutionalized Adult Retardates: Inhibition and Speed.
Pedrini, D. T.; And Others
Letter-letter, letter-number, and number-letter paired associates were used in this A-B, B-C, A-C study. There were two A-C lists, the positive-transfer stimulus-items of one became the negative-transfer stimulus-items of the other, and vice versa. Twenty subjects were included and each learned one A-C list. The main effects included, among subjects: sex (men, women), learners (quicker, slower), A-C lists (blue, red); within subjects: lists (A-B, B-C, A-C), transfer (positive, negative), and items (fastest, middle, slowest). In each analysis, quicker or slower learners tended to remain so; lists were not significantly different; corresponding items across lists did not remain fastest, middle, or slowest; transfer items were differentiated on A-C only. Other significances were discussed, but they were not consistent among analyses. The paper begins with a brief review related to inhibition and speed in paired-associate learning. (Author)
