A Classroom Demonstration of Depth of Processing.
Chaffin, Roger; Herrmann, Douglas J.
Teaching of Psychology, v10 n2 p105-07 Apr 1983
Psychology students find that, when they can repeat material, their memories are, paradoxically, poorer than when they are prevented from repeating the material. The paradox is explained by the depth of processing approach to memory which maintains that long-term retention depends on how elaborately the information is processed. (RM)
