Abstract

This research predicts that word lists that include pictures will have a greater rate of free recall by participants than word lists that do not include pictures. Using a between-subjects design, 25 participants, including 15 females and 10 males (M = 19.5 years, SD = 1.21) will be randomly assigned to view a word list on a slide show that does or does not contain pictures alongside the words and then freely recall as many words as they can. It is anticipated that the word list that includes pictures will have greater recall. These results would implicate that pictures do influence recall ability.
