Results Figure 1 presents the average number of correctly answered questions when the information was typical verses atypical and as a function of the type of memory retrieval task. Looking at the pattern of results displayed in Figure 1, it appears that more questions were answered correctly when the information to be remembered was atypical than when the information to be remembered was typical and when the type of memory retrieval task was recall questions rather than recognition questions. The degree of either variable was not effected by the other.

Unformatted text preview: to be retrieved was atypical (M = 3.71, SD = ___) than when the information to be retrieved was typical (M = 3.21, SD = ___), regardless of the memory retrieval task, F(1 , 13) = 5.06, MSE = 0.69, p = 0.043 . A significant main effect of the type of memory retrieval task was also revealed, such that the average number of questions answered correctly was significantly higher when questions were presented in recognition form (M = 3.96, SD = ___), than when presented in recall form (M = 2.96, SD ___), regardless of the typicality of information, F(1, 13) = 9.838, MSE = 1.42, p = .008 . The interaction between typicality and memory retrieval task was found to be non significant , F(1, 13) = 0.00, MSE = .73, p = 1.00 ....
