Lara wanted to investigate different forms of revision with her Geography classes.Class 1 and class 2 were given a list of 12 capital cities to learn for a Geography test.Class 1 were given grouped capital cities with the same first letter.Class 2 were given ungrouped capital cities.Figure 2 shows the lists given to class 1 and class 2.Class 1 scored higher on average for the Geography test.Explain one reason for the higher performance of class 1 compared to class 2. You should refer to the Multi-store Model of Memory in your answer. (2)

Hi there,

Some points you could easily make...

  • short term memory can encode information visually, acoustically and semantically but only 5 - 9 items
  • information can be "chunked" in the short term memory increasing the capacity that can be learnt - grouped capital cities
  • rehearsal retains information, moves into the long-term memory
  • rehearsed information is encoded semantically (through meaning) - will retain capital cities through groups more

Hope this helps
