She has read the names through six times, and she is ready to test herself on how well she can recall them. Based on research studies that have shown memory failures for lists of unfamiliar material often follow a pattern called a serial position curve, you should predict that Savanna will remember the names of the vice-presidents;at the beginning of the list better than the names in the middle or at the end.;at the end of the list better than the names at the beginning or in the middle.;in the middle of the list better than the names at the beginning or at the end.;at the beginning and the end of the list better than the names in the middle.;39);Children often have difficulty remembering the letters in the middle of the alphabet because of;overlearning of the first letters in the alphabet.;distributed practice.;the serial-position effect.;the use of mnemonic devices.;40);If you associate a word with an image to represent the word, you are using;an acrostic.;the link method.;the keyword method.;a semantic network.;41);If you attempt to improve your memory by focusing on attention, levels of processing, elaboration, and visual imagery, you are focusing on the memory process of;retrieval.;memorization.;encoding.;storage.;42);Most students find recognition tests easier than recall tests because ____ tests provide ____.;recall, relearning cues;recall, retrieval cues;recognition, relearning cues;recognition, retrieval cues;43);Which of the memory stores can hold the LEAST amount of information?;sensory store;short-term memory;long-term memory;declarative memory;44);When you violate the encoding specificity principle, you are likely to experience an inability to;encode information.;store information.;retrieve information.;form a visual image of the material you want to retrieve.;45);The failure to seek out disconfirming evidence can often lead to;the overconfidence effect.;the reconstructive bias.;the hindsight bias.;a source monitoring error.;46);Wilson is watching two different roulette-type games at a local charity bazaar. Each game costs $1.00 to play. In one game there are ten different numbers, and if the number he selects comes up, he will win $12.00. In the other game there are 100 different numbers, but if the number he selects comes up, he will win $50.00. Based on expected value theory, Wilson should;play the second game because it has a higher expected value.;play either one of the games because they both have the same expected value.;not play either game because they both have such low odds of winning.;play the first game because it has a higher expected value.;47);During the 1950s and 1960s, creative new ways of measuring mental processes paved the way for the cognitive revolution. The development of new research methods helps to illustrate which of your text"s unifying themes?;Our experience of the world is highly subjective.;Psychology is theoretically diverse.;Psychology is empirical.;Behavior is determined by multiple causes.;48);Christine has been following the state lottery for over a year, and she has a record of the number of times every number has been selected.

In this case, Christine is showing evidence of;the availability heuristic.;the base rate fallacy.;the gambler"s fallacy.;the conjunction fallacy.;49);Maribel is on a jury, and she is already convinced that the defendant in the case is not guilty.
