SPECIFIC QUESTION PROMPT INSTRUCTIONSComparing Memory for Amnesic & Normal Individuals Graf and Schacter (1985) conducted an experiment in which participants were shown pairs of unrelated words (e.g. “computer,” “building”). After the presentation of each word pair, they were told to construct a sentence that contained each word pair (“The office building contains 54 computers.”). Two tasks were then administered. In the first task, fragment completion (the first three letters for each word fragment was provided), participants were to fill in the blanks to complete the word (e.g. cog _ _ _ _ _ _ = cognitive). Some of these items were in fact from the word pairs shown earlier (participants were not told that their memory was being tested of the prior word pairs (hint, hint)). The second task was (cued) recall. Half of each pair is presented and the participant is to provide the other word from the pair (e.g., s/he was provided the word “computer” and his/her response should be “building”). For this task, participants did know their memory for the prior word pairs was being tested (hint, hint).Here are the approximate percent correct for the various conditions: SubjectCued RecallFragment CompletionNormal Subject 68%34%Amnesic Subject 5%31%ReferenceGraf, P., & Schacter, D.

Rubric:CriteriaRatingsPoints PossibleDescription of article in submissionTwo sentences refer to the article.
