Schneider, H. G.; Ferrante, A. P.
Journal of Psychology, v113 n1 p53-59 Jan 1983
A total of 90 undergraduate volunteers learned a 12-pair, low-frequency verbal discrimination list. Independent variables were feedback (positive only, negative only, or both) and initial success (17, 50, or 83 percent correct on the first trial). While the main effect of feedback was not significant, that of initial success was. (Author/RH)
