Response attributes and anxiety drive in paired associate learning

, : Response attributes and anxiety drive in paired associate learning. Bulletin of the Psychonomic Society 11(4): 255-258

The effect of generalized drive (measured by the Taylor Manifest Anxiety Scale), meaningfulness and similarity was examined in a paired associate learning tasks with human subjects. Learning was analyzed in 2 stages, a response-learning (RL) and an associative-matching (AM) stage. The task varied in intralist response similarity and interlist response meaningfulness. The interaction between anxiety and response similarity was not significant. Under conditions of high meaningfulness, low similarity had a facilitatory effect on RL and AM. The results were not predicted by the Taylor-Spence drive theory.

Alum was more effective than ferric sulfate, hydrated lime or gypsum in removing clay turbidity from laboratory suspensions of clay. A simple alum-requirement test was developed to determine alum amount needed to floc clay particles in pond water....
