When Jane was 19 she completed the first 2 units of a German course. Ten years later, she began the course again and found that she learned the material in the first two units 25% more quickly than she did originally.

This is probably because:
A. relearning is the most sensitive measure of memory.
B. the savings score could be calculated..
C. the material in the first two units was the easiest.
D. she was older and therefore her memory worked better.

I said B, due to the bold memory, but im not sure. What about you guys?

That question was shit. I can't even remember what I did.

Not of the options really fitted the question IMO.

I said B. In my thinking, A would only apply if the statement said something like 'when she tested herself to see how much information she had retained, she found that she had retained more than a multiple choice test indicated.' Something like that. I thought A invited comparison of the measures of retention and the statement wasn't about how sensitive relearning is compared to the others. It was about relearning itself and the information or time saved

..but that could really just be my shoddy interpretation.

A would be correct.

Because relearning is sensitive, in that it has the more superior ability to assess the amount of information retained in memory. Due to it's ability to assess the amount retained in memory, they referred to it as a "measure of memory".

I like your point, it didn't suggest comparison with the other measures of retention.

I also thought the same thing as you guys... didnt think A or B properly gave a reason for her being able to remember 25% of her previous things

25% IS her savings score... and she USED relearning to measure that.

niether of them really explain it... it should hve said something like ... Relearning enables a measure of memory retained from previous experience or something.

I went with A simply because i had more Bs than As on the column... lol :P

Oh, and also because A seems to sound MORE like an explanation that woudl be required than B does.

Hehehe. I got so caught up in whether or not VCAA was trying to be sneaky that I couldn't work out whether I was supposed to interpret the question deeper or just take it on face value. Those psychology exam-writers certainly know how to play mind tricks.


And that schedules of reinforcement question should NOT have been there. At least put it on the study design -_-

Yeah I'm sure it's variable ratio. Unfortunately, I said it was fixed ratio. But that's wrong.  :(

For SA when it asks for a role/example:

My first point was:

Role: Integtrates information from the  phonological loop and the visuo spatial sketchpad.

Example: Sounds and auditory information from our conscious awareness are actively manipulated in conscious awareness.

Its not a specific example, but its providing an example of what its doing?

Is that acceptable?

im not sure, your role is definitely correct...

I think it wants a real life example... i knwo what youre saying, but you needed to say it like... "piecing together the sound and video from a movie."

i dont know.. you might get the mark if you have a really generous examiner

With the one about the researcher using 3 assistants to look after the three conditions. Could I say the confounding variable is experimental variable? Such as how the experimenter would unwantedly affect the dv due to his expectation and bias

Coz it said confounding variable so I went with describing a different type of variable, if it said effect I definitely would've went experimenter effect, but I dunno if it's also acceptable

My teacher said it's fix ratio but with those ones, it's hard to tell
