Differential Forgetting of Superordinate and Subordinate Information Acquired from Prose Material
Miller, Raymond B.; And Others
Journal of Educational Psychology, 69, 6, 730-5, Dec 77
The superior retention of superordinate ideas over time was replicated in this study which demonstrated the construct validity of a recognition test based upon the structure of a prose passage. A link was made between existing data on memory for prose and past theory: Ausubel's subsumption theory and Craik and Lockhart's levels-of-processing framework. (Author/CP)
