Memory Models

> Assignment 1: Discussion–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
