Cognitive Science 2004

At the Cognitive Science 2004 conference (August 5-7 in Chicago) we presented a poster on our research into differentiating the contextual interference effect (interleaving) from the spacing effect, using foreign language vocabulary.

"Differentiating the Contextual Interference Effect from the Spacing Effect"- Lindsey E. Richland, Jason R. Finley, Robert A. Bjork - University of California, Los Angeles


Powerpoint presentation used for a UCLA lab meeting on September 29th, 2004. This covers our first two experiments using the WISE system with undergraduate participants. In the first, we looked at presentation order (blocked vs. interleaved) and simple generation (read vs. generate); in the second, we looked at different kinds of more complex generation. - IDDEASWISEexp2cogfog9-29-04.ppt


Powerpoint presentation used for a UCLA lab meeting on February 23rd, 2005.  Covers our 3rd WISE experiment which investigated the interleaving effect more closely.
