3.3 Activity: Memorization
In our class, we did a memory experiment. 148 students participated in the experiment. Each person was shown a list of letters for 30 seconds. You had to memorize as many letters as you could, and then recall them after 30 seconds.
There were two different groups in the experiment. Each person was randomly assigned to a group. Each group got the same letters, same time, etc. But, the organization of the letters was different.
For one group, the letters were arranged in meaningful chunks. For the other group, the letters were arranged in nonsense chunks. In this activity, you will be exploring the following question:
Does meaningful chunking improve memory?
