The Influence of Contextual Stimuli on Test Performance of College Students.
Todd, Alan D.
To assess the effect of contextual stimuli on learning, a study was conducted to see if providing instruction to students in one setting and testing them in yet another setting had an effect on their recall. Twenty-eight college students were randomly divided into two groups, and both were exposed to a multimedia instructional presentation. Then, one group was tested in the laboratory where they were instructed, and the other group was transfered to another location and then tested. An analysis of the test results showed that the displaced group scored significantly lower. (EMH)
