Sheehan, Peter W. – Journal of Experimental Psychology, 1972
Hypothesis was tested that more high-imagery-arousing than low-imagery-arousing noun stimuli will be recalled in incidental as compared to intentional learning. (Author)

Yarmey, A. Daniel; Bowen, Norma V. – Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 1972
Results illustrate that instructions to use imagery facilitate the intentional and the incidental learning of both normal and educable retarded children. (Authors)

Bereiter, Carl – Elementary School Journal, 1973
Four kinds of learning are the basis for most of the discussion in this paper: direct-application learning, basic skills, background knowledge, and personal learning. (Author/CB)

Hauck, William E.; Thomas, John W. – Journal of Experimental Education, 1972
Findings suggest that humor facilitates the recall of incidental but not intentional learning. (MB)

Rieber, Lloyd P. – 1991
The effects of visual grouping strategies involving animated and static graphic presentations on learning were studied. Also studied was the ability of students to learn a scientific rule presented incidentally in an animated sequence in the hope of replicating results from previous research. A total of 39 fourth graders participated in an…

Meinke, Dean L.; And Others – 1982
Four separate experiments were completed using the same stimulus materials but different groups of subjects to determine if orienting tasks created problems of control in incidental/intentional learning studies. Subjects were all Caucasians and heterogeneous in age (from 24 to 64 years), educational experiences, and career choices. Those in the…

Foley, Mary Ann; Foley, Hugh J. – 1985
Two criteria for the automatic encoding of learning, instructional manipulation, and stimulus characteristics were studied in subjects who judged the frequency of occurrence of words, letters, and nonwords. In Experiment 1, six word lists were constructed with varying frequency of alphabet letters. A variety of instructions were presented (whether…

Snart, Fern; Mulcahy, Robert – 1979
Age differences in recognition and recall of common nouns were studied using three groups of fifty students, with mean ages of 6.7, 11.4, and 16.9. Subjects were randomly placed in either an incidental or intentional learning condition. All subjects were questioned about the physical, phonemic, and semantic aspects of the same words, in the same…

Atkin, Charles K. – 1975
This report, the second in a series of six reports on television advertising and children, presents the results from a series of experimental studies designed to test children's intentional and incidental learning from television commercials. A total of 400 elementary school students of varying socioeconomic status participated in the study, with…

Newman, Lawrence S. – Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 1990
In a study of recall in gamelike and lessonlike contexts, 4- and 5-year-old children were asked to remember or to play with a set of 16 pictures or toys in a naturalistic or laboratory setting. The children's behavior and language were measured during two-minute study phases, after which recall was assessed. (BC)

Dinnel, Dale; Glover, John A. – Journal of Reading Behavior, 1986
Contrasts sequential and relational processing manipulations of passages with manipulations which focus on individual lexical items and the propositions in which they are embedded. Finds recall to be superior when readers use sequential and relational processing during performance of individual item-specific lexical processing. (RS)

Konopak, Bonnie; And Others – Reading Psychology, 1987
Examines whether students spontaneously focus on and acquire meanings for unknown words encountered in text. Indicates that, while the intentional learning group made the greatest gains, the incidental learning group acquired some knowledge and confidence. Shows that the control group gained little in either case. Provides support for incidental…

Nigro, Georgia N.; Roak, Rebecca M. – American Journal of Mental Deficiency, 1987
Memory automaticity for spatial location was evaluated with 14 mildly retarded adults and 14 nonretarded adults under two instructional conditions: intentional or incidental. Intention to encode spatial location had no effect on recall for either group and retarded and nonretarded subjects did not differ in recall of spatial location. (Author/DB)
