Mediated Paired-Associates Learning in an EMR Population: The Effect of Type of Strategy, Intersession Interval, and Reminder Cue. Volume 3, Number 44.
Stein, Joan Lerner; And Others
Investigated were the effects of type of strategy training, intersession interval, and a posttraining reminder cue on paired associates learning for 57 educable mentally retarded elementary school children. Ss were assigned to one of four training conditions (sentence mediation, visual imagery mediation, combined sentence and imagery training, or a control group receiving practice without training); each group was divided into subgroups according to the interval (1 day, 1 week, or 2 weeks) between their two training sessions; and all groups received pretraining and posttraining assessments. Results indicated that posttest transfer was obtained under all training conditions, that posttraining reminder cues boosted performance, and that significant interactions between strategy and interval occurred (although neither factor differentially affected performance when taken above).
