Abstract

This research predicted that participants using mnemonic techniques to remember read material will recall a different amount of information relative to those not using mnemonic techniques. Using a between-subject design, twenty-five participants, including 13 males and 12 females (M=21.5, SD =4.5) were randomly assigned to either the mnemonic technique group, or a control group, and asked to read a 300 word passage, then complete a multiple choice quiz. Participants using the mnemonic technique demonstrated higher levels of recall on the quiz. These results suggest that mnemonic techniques may be an effective way to increase reading memory.
