Ahhh I see I see...
So Loftus' findings prove that memory is reconstructive and further add to the original idea of it.
How would I explain reconstruction as a method of retrieval? And how sensitive of a measure is it compared to recall, recognition and relearning??

Alsooo I have a question: which one is more sensitive: free or serial recall, and why? I've known free recall to have the least sensitivity out of all the types of recall, however I've never known why serial recall has better sensitivity.

Free recall is more sensitive than serial recall. In most cases it is harder to retrieve things in order. I like to think of it in terms of stations on a train line; you would likely be able to recall more names of train stations on the train line, rather than recall them in order.

Exactly! It goes:
Least to most sensitive: Serial recall -> Free recall -> Cued recall

Thank you everyone! Thatís a really good example haha if thereís ever a question on the exam relating to this Iíll remember this :)

Is there a difference between negative punishment and response cost or can they be used interchangeably??
Thank you !

Response cost occurs when something valuable is taken away to weaken the likelihood a behaviour will occur in the future.
I had a similar question, however negative punishment is not in the study design and therefore I doubt you will need to know about it.
However, if you're curious, they (response cost and negative punishment) can be used interchangeably and mean the same thing. However, refer to the notion as response cost in your exam as that is what the study design explicitly states to use.

Are we allowed to write underneath the provided lines in the exam? Like I know there is a space at the end of the exam provided for extra writing, however when you only have a line, or a few words more to write, is it okay to write it underneath the lines? I almost always have at least a few words extra to write for each question, and flipping to the back of the exam booklet proves to be both tedious and time-consuming when done for each question, especially when I don't have a whole extra paragraph to write and I could just write the answer underneath. I'm worried the examiners won't mark anything that is not written on the lines.

Yeah that's fine,  just don't write in the do not write space.

Hi everyone,

This is from the 2015 VCAA exam.

Task 1- naming triangle that starts with I
Task 2 - name another type of triangle
Task 3 - choose out of three options

I chose

3,1,2 to be from most to least sensitive yet the answer is 213



I know relearning is the most sensitive, but it is not in that list. Further, recognition is the second sensitive so how is it B?

Thanks (:

The question asks for least to most sensitive, not most to least sensitive. You've answered it the other way round.

Hey guys!
Is relapse considered a stage in the transtheoretical model of behaviour change or is it just an event that can occur in either the action stage or maintenance stage? Because I came across this MCQ basically describing a scenario where the individual relapses and asks which stage of the model it occurred in. I chose maintenance but the answer was relapse. Please answer if you can and thanks in advance :)

Wow, I can't believe I read it so incorrectly. Thanks (:

I would recheck this with your teacher but as far as I know relapse is NOT considered a stage in the model, however it can occur duing any stage of the model, and it can set you back into any stage of the model.

So the transtheoretical model of behaviour change consists of 5 stages
1. Pre - Contemplation
2. Contemplation
3. Preparation
4. Action
5. Maintenance

- From my understanding, the individual can enter and exit from any stage of the model.
- Going through all my notes and other resources it doesn't seem that 'relapse' is a stage of the model, but rather a part of it which can occur at any stage.

However, browsing the web, in the new version of the model there is a 6th stage consisting of termination/relapse.

So I guess that may be why relapse was the answer.

Hi!
I don't know if this has already been asked but how many pages should we aim to write for the extended response question approximately (especially if you want 7+)? Thanks

There isn't really a set number of pages that you need to write to achieve a certain mark.
More about what you discuss.

Although the best-extended response answers are usually quite long and detailed (more than a page) so as long as you talk about relevant topics and go into thorough detail, you should be fine.
