Repetition and Retention

by Insiya Ezzi


Submitted : Spring 2012

Through this project it is determined whether or not there is an effect on the retention of a set of data due to the number of times a set of data is repeated. To determine whether there was an effect or not an experiment was carried out in which subjects were told to repeat sets of data various amounts of times and then after a period of time were tested on this data to see how much was retained. After conducting a 99% confidence interval, as well as determining the r, r-square and least-squares regression line it was determined that there was an effect on the amount of information that was retained in accordance to the number of times it was repeated.
