The Effects of Elaboration and Rehearsal on Long-Term Retention of Shape Names by Kindergarteners
Gallimore, Ronald; And Others
American Educational Research Journal, 14, 4, 471-83, F 77
Elaboration and overt rehearsal are compared as instructional paradigms for memory retention. Superior long-term retention was produced in the elaboration condition when the initial acquisition effects were statistically removed. Short-term data suggest acquisition was complexly affected by experimental condition, I.Q., and task. Elaboration generally prompted better long-term retention. (Author/JAC)
