Encoding Specificity Experiment

Click on the arrow key for instructions.


Instructions

In this experiment, you will be shown word pairs in the center of the screen for several seconds each. One word will be shown in lowercase letters, the other in capital letters. You will need to remember the word in capital letters for a later memory test.

We would like you to use the word in lowercase letters (the “context” word) as an aid to remember to word given in capital letters (the “target” word). In other words, when you attempt to commit each target word to memory, we would like you to think of the target word as it relates to the context word.

Test Instructions

We will now test your memory for the target words (the words shown in capital letters). A series of memory cues will the presented on the screen for several seconds each. Use each memory cue as an aid for recalling a target word that was shown previously. Write the word on your answer sheet as you go along. If you can’t remember the word that goes with the cue, place a dash on your answer sheet in the appropriate blank.
