The study consists of three overlapping subprograms. The major subprogram focuses upon questions of how the organization of data in memory affects the acquisition of new information and the usefulness of stored information in response to various tasks. A second subprogram focuses upon the complementary issue of how different ways of encoding the information to be assimilated affects mastery and efficiency of processing. The third subprogram is aimed at bridging the gap between the classical work on memory which is based upon meaningless and simple stimulus materials and the current work on semantic memory. (Author)
Coding Systems in Perception and Cognition ( Book )
3 editions published between 1968 and 1972 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The variety of experiments completed under the contract successfully isolated ways that humans encode and employ information to meet task demands. The results indicate that, when a stimulus is presented, two or more separate coding processes proceed in parallel. One process may build up an iconic representation of the stimulus object; another process is the retrieval of one or more name codes for the stimulus pattern. For some tasks the response depends completely on the iconic code; for others it depends on the name code. Not only do humans typically convert iconic codes into name codes (abstraction), but, when the occasion is appropriate, they can reverse the process and generate iconic representations from name codes. The build up or construction of the iconic representations appears to take place in a three-dimensional analog medium. (Author Modified Abstract)
Coding Systems and the Comprehension of Instructional Materials ( Book )
2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The goal in this project was to try to bridge the gap between cognitive psychology and instructional technology. For the most part, contemporary cognitive psychology is built upon experiments that employ extremely simple, arbitrary and meaningless stimulus materials with respondents who spend only a total time that rarely exceeds a few hours. The new area of semantic memory, however, has encouraged experimentation with stimulus materials that are more complex, meaningful and highly organized. Document focuses upon the interaction between what an individual already knows and new inputs. On the one hand questions can be asked about how the content and organization of the old information affects the individual's ability to deal with the new input. Under what conditions is the new input altered or distorted so as to better fit with the old? Questions can also be asked about how the new inputs affect the stored information. Under what conditions does the input lead to change or modification of previous knowledge? Such questions are all related to the broader question of the different ways individuals encode new information and how such encoding affects later utilization of that information
