Using the CogLab CD accompanying your course textbook, complete the levels-of-processing experiment and create a report on the experiment.
In your report, write a brief introduction of the experiment explaining the levels-of-processing framework. Next, in the Methods section, describe the process that you followed to complete the experiment. Make sure to include enough information so that others can also perform the same experiment successfully.
Finally, describe the experimental results in all the three conditions. In addition, identify the condition where you performed the best and the worst. Provide a rationale explaining why the results differed in all the three conditions. Summarize your report, including answers to the following questions:
Were the results in accordance with your expectations? Provide a rationale to support your answer.
Did anything about the experiment surprise you? If yes, what?
What factors would influence the results of the levels-of-processing experiment?
