The Effect of Word Length on Item Order and Item Identification in Immediate Serial Recall Tasks
00:02
Rachel Berg
00:05
Background
00:06
Previous research has shown that shorter words leads to better identification! What is missing is determining whether the length of word lists enhances memory for both item identification and order recall when accounted for at the same time, under identical environments...

PARTICIPANTS
00:13
16 individuals 12 men and 4 women M- 23.5, SD= 16.38
00:15
Participants voluntarily took our survey sent to them
00:21
measures
00:22
consent form & demographics participants asked if they prefer cats or dogs
00:23
USING QUALTRICS, this study was sent out
00:25
A list of words appeared for a second participants were then asked to recall, follow by a recognition activity
00:31
RESULTS
00:32
A paired T-test was used to determine if there would be higher recall and recognition in groups who preferred dogs over cats
00:33
t = (-13.4), p = 3.713e-08 with a 95% CI = ( -0.844081, -0.605919). This means that we can reject the null hypothesis.
