Procedure: The participants were given one schema at the encoding stage and one schema at the retrieval stage, to see if they were influenced. In a later study, Anderson and Pichert () presented evidence for the effect of reader perspective on retrieval processes. Subjects who shifted to the alternate. Key Study: Anderson and Pichert () Aim: To investigate if schema processing influences both encoding and retrievalMethod: Highly controlled l.

Explain social learning theory A study is presented which demonstrates the effects of knowledge on remembering product information. The researchers also found that the group which continued with the first schema actually remembered fewer ideas at the second trial.

The processes do not act independently, there is evidence of an interaction between encoding and retrieval processes. The first hypothesis states that experts andeerson more than novices.

But the theory requires further research and refinements to overcome its limitations and uncover its unclear aspects. The novice is less able to draw different information from memory in varying situations. Experts will edit based on importance, novices will be less able to do so. The edited idea units are either very important or related to the second retrieval cue, while the novice provides. With reference to relevant to The findings supported the idea that subjects in the copy condition were more likely than subjects in other conditions pochert draw the clock without invoking schematic knowledge of Roman numerals.

This suggests that encoding will be facilitated with a more elaborate knowledge structure which contains more specific information.

This supports the retrieval hypothesis. They found that expert probation officers integrated new experiences by rejecting less useful picyert and enriching the present schemas with more useful information.

They are also concerned for their safety on the street. Define strengths of schema theory: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, Inc.


The contribution of this paper is to demonstrate that experts and novices differ in their ability to edit product information given different usage contexts.

Schema theory explains how new information is categorised according to existing knowledge. Unknown March 5, at 8: Those assigned to the no context condition were not given a usage context, they were just asked to read the story slowly and carefully.

Discuss two errors in attribut As there is no evidence of the encoding explanation, there can be no evidence of an interaction between encoding and retrieval. The evidence is that the designation of importance is made at retrieval. The ;ichert was pretested to ensure an equal amount of important information for each context.

Outline principles that define When the conditions are pooled, subjects participating in this experiment remembered an average of 1.

Lockhart”Levels of Processing: The results of a series of studies examining chess experts by Chase and Simon caused a shift in focus from the differences in search strategies as a source of expertise to the differences in the quantity, content and organization of localized knowledge. Kinder and Michael W. Subjects in the context condition were given the image context. The functional usage context is operationalized by instructing the subjects that they want a bicycle to get them from point A to point B.

Experts are characterized as having more domain specific information Chi, Glaser and Rees ; Mitchell, Dacin and Chi which is more organized than the domain specific knowledge held by the novice Alba and Hutchinson ; Chi, Feltovich and Glaser ; Fiske, Kinder and Larter However, when editing is considered, it appears that a general context at encoding is more facilitating for the expert.

Spilich and James F. However, the variable control enabled the researchers to establish a cause-and-effect relationship on how schemas affect different memory processes. After another 5 minute delay, half of the participants were given the switched schema. However, if any of the information was incorrect, credit was not given.


The provision of a context at encoding does not facilitate the ability to edit at retrieval. The expert provides 2. The designation of importance occurs at retrieval, this is clear because the edited information is important to the second retrieval context, and not to the first retrieval context.

The recalled statements were compared to the idea units from the story. Cognition and Emotion CE1: Anderson and Pichert demonstrate support of the retrieval hypothesis. Knowledge can be represented as hierarchical, with highly inclusive concepts subsuming more specific information. This hypothesis is supported see Table One.

The expert edits based on the importance of the information. Finally, subjects completed a questionnaire gathering the expertise measures, asked what they believed the experimental hypotheses were, thanked for there participation, debriefed and awarded 1.

Schema processing has an influence at the encoding and retrieval stage, as new schema influenced recall at the retrieval stage. Finally, objective knowledge was a raw score of multiple choice questions, definitions and the number of accessible brands.

Wnd, the novice also edits based on importance. Third, the annd equips the processor with rules and applications which allow for elaboration through the generation of inferences see Alba and Hutchinson The other half of the participants kept the same schema.

Consequently, the expert will have a more comprehensive schema for the domain when compared to the novice. Idea units unrelated to those in the story are not included in this analysis.

To investigate if schema processing influences both encoding and retrieval.
