the physical qualities of an experience would be considered context e.g. what we saw, heard, touched, tasted etc... ^^
Yep that's it.

I agree here, but I guess in this course you shouldn't be going into so much depth...

Well it depends on what the question asks. Music could never be state alone but it can elicit feelings/emotions which can then act as a state cue.

If it says for example: Bobby was listening to the song "Memories" by David Guetta, and then suddenly remembered he needed to do his psychology assignment on Memory. What type of cue is this?

Then you'd say "context" as it was external. The music was in the environment.

While if it said something relating to its affects on his internal life/mood/personality the change in mood is state, for example: Bobby was listening to "Memories" by David Guetta which made him feel sad and this in turn reminded him of his dead cat. What type of cue was this feeling of sadness?

Answer: State.

However if you used this same example but changed the question to: What type of cue was the song? The answer would still be context because the song doesn't come from within.

So music is a context cue however it can trigger or elicit something within and then this feeling or emotion is a state cue.

It depends on the example. Just think. If the cue is external = context, if it's internal = state.

I'll check with my teacher if you want? Because I'm not 100% sure on this one.

Grivas shows a Graph.
I would tend to think that it insists variable Interval is most resistant.

Everyone is arguing this on here. lol

If the exam asks you what the DV is... do you answer in operationalised form or just a basic answer??

Also does serial position effect only work in free recall??

Always operationalise as it gets you into a good habit because in your hypothesis the DV must be operationalised. The assessors I don't think can take marks off but it kinda secures your mark more.

From what I'm aware of yes, serial recall only produces the primacy effect. But I haven't really looked into this in depth so you'd be better off getting a second opinion on this one..

I really doubt that the serial position effect will be asked in relation to any method other than free recall.
