Details

In a source-monitoring experiment with two sources, participants study items from two different sources, A and B. The final memory test consists of A and B items along with new distractor items, N. Participants are required to classify each item as A, B, or N.

In an experiment at the Department of Psychology, University of Tuebingen, two source conditions were used in the study phase: In the first one, subjects had to read items either quietly (think) or aloud (say). In the second, they wrote them down (write) or read them aloud (say).

The data were analyzed using the multinomial processing tree model of source monitoring (Batchelder & Riefer, 1990).

Format

sources

Factor. Sources A and B.

age

Integer. Age of the respondents in years.

gender

a.n Number of source A items judged to be new.
b.a Number of source B items judged to be of source A.
b.b Number of source B items judged to be of source B.
