Encoding Specificity Lab

Data

· Insert your data in the table below.

Study/Test Cue* Proportion Correct
[Insert text] [Insert value]
[Insert text] [Insert value]
[Insert text] [Insert value]
[Insert text] [Insert value]
[Insert text] [Insert value]

*Strong and Weak refer to the extent to which cue and target are related in meaning. Weak/Weak and Strong/Strong designate conditions where the cues, used at study and test, were the same. Weak/Strong and Strong/Weak designate conditions where the cues, used at study and test, were different.

Lab Questions

· Do your results support the encoding specificity hypothesis? Why or why not? Note: Consider what led to the best results—having strong semantic associations between cue and target, or matching cues at encoding and test?

· Describe a real or hypothetical example of a situation that demonstrates encoding specificity. Ensure that your example is original and not from course materials.
