Part-set cueing facilitation refers to the retrieval advantage when part of the set of to-be-remembered information is provided as cues at test. The present experiments were designed to explore part-set cueing in the context of map and route memory. In two experiments, we set out to find how cues and beacons would affect the recall of routes, as well as to see if presentation during the memorization phase changed the outcome in the recall task. The use of both beacons and part-set cues facilitates the recall of routes, but to varying degrees. Implications of these findings will be discussed.
