Delayed Release from Proactive Interference with Meaningful Material: How Much Do We Remember After Reading Brief Prose Passages?
Blumenthal, Gary B.; Robbins, Donald
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Learning and Memory, 3, 6, 754-61, Nov 77
Three experiments were conducted, investigating the buildup of and the release from proactive interference, in which the stimulus materials were brief prose passages about specific topics. Each passage was followed by a multiple-choice test, and then a final test on all the passages read was given. Implications of the data for standardized tests and for reading in general are explored.
