Presentation Title

Not All Part-Set Cues Are Created Equally

Location

Lillard Lobby

Abstract

The present study manipulated the presence/absence of part-set cues, as well as the memorability of those cues (high vs. low, based on a previous study) and the type of test (free recall vs. ordered recall). Participants either read three short paragraphs (Exp 1) or three word lists (Exp 2). Test type was manipulated between-subjects, whereas cue type (uncued, high-mem-cued, low-mem-cued) was a within-subjects factor. When the data were scored using a lenient (free recall) criterion, part-set cueing inhibition occurred only when high memorability cues were presented. In contrast, the presence of low memorability cues at test eliminated part-set cueing inhibition.
