Levels of Processing Affects Long-Term but not Short-Term Memory

Previous Previous Next Next
Description
When tested immediately after studying words, levels of processing do not seem to affect memory. In contrast, when there is a gap between studying words and being tested, levels of processing are important. When words are encoded based on their meaning (semantics), they are better retained in long-term memory.
