Frequency Information and Distance Effects: A Reply to Humphreys
Potts, George R.
Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, 16, 4, 479-487, Aug 77
When subjects are tested on ordered information, performance is better on inferences than on information actually presented during training. Humphreys suggested that superiority on inferences derives from differential frequency. This experiment refutes that position, demonstrating that superiority on inferences is observed even when frequency is equated. (CHK)
