Excerpt from Learning and Retention: A Comparison of Three Experimental Procedures

This study is an investigation of the Old question of whether the fast learner is the better retainer or whether the saying Easy come, easy go, more nearly describes the relation of speed of learn ing to retentivity.

The specific problem considered here is the relation between the learning of visually presented paired associates and the retention for a definite interval of time of those pairs which have been learned completely. In the measurement Of Speed of learning two factors are involved, time to learn the material, and amount of material learned. Either one of these factors may be held constant while the other varies. Hence there are two methods which have ordi narily been used in attacking this problem. In the first method, all subjects are allowed to learn the material completely, the speed of learning being determined by the time necessary to learn. In the second method, equal opportunity is given for all subjects to learn the material, and speed of learning is measured by the amount of material learned in a constant time. In this investigation both of. These methods have been followed with certain improvements in experimental and statistical procedure. In addition, a third method has been employed which avoids, in part at least, the difficulties inherent in the others. All three of these methods, and the results from previous experiments employing them, will be considered brie y.
