                                                                             Memory Models

Learning about the structure of memory can
improve your study skills. In this assignment, you will discuss the
academic applications of memory models and try to apply the principles
to yourself. Use the readings for the module and the terminology of the
subject and respond to these questions:

  • You are a teaching assistant for an undergraduate
    history class and need to prepare a test. You want evidence to show that
    students know the material well. What kind of test would you prepare?
    What kind of test do you think requires the most in-depth knowledge?
    Why?
  • As Dan took his history test, he could not recollect
    many of the dates he had studied. Dan had memorized some important
    dates just before the test. While he was doing this, he was also talking
    on the phone. Which of Dan’s memory stores—sensory memory, short-term
    memory (STM), or long-term memory (LTM)—do you think were most affected
    by his phone conversation? Why? Could Dan have done something
    differently to prevent forgetting the dates? Explain.
  • Identify two different kinds of mnemonic devices
    that could help Dan remember dates for his history test. Explain how
    they could be used.
  • Melissa is disappointed that she received yet
    another “D” on a test. She studied for several hours by reading and
    rereading her textbook and class notes. Based on the
    levels-of-processing memory theory, explain why Melissa’s method of
    studying was not very effective? What could she have done differently?
  • Using Baddeley’s working memory model, give an
    example of two tasks that could successfully be performed simultaneously
    (For example, can you listen to music while studying at the same
    time?). Discuss two other tasks that probably would interfere with each
    other. Make sure to discuss your answers in terms of the visuospatial
    scratchpad, the phonological loop, and the central executive.

Write your initial response in 4–5 paragraphs. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.
