About This Document

This research investigates the effect of retrieval cues on the memory recall of individuals. The study aims to determine whether retrieval cues improve the process of recalling words compared to free recall. Participants were divided into two groups, one given retrieval cues and the other asked to perform free recall. The results show that participants with retrieval cues were better able to recall words. The research supports the hypothesis that retrieval cues enhance memory recall.

Title: To investigate the effect of retrieval cues on the number of words remembered.
Abstract
The purpose of this research is to find out the impact of retrieval cues on the memory of an
individual. More specifically, the aim f the research is to find out the weather retrial cues can
improve the process of recalling words compared to free recall. 20 participants were given 20
words to remember. 10 of them were given retrieval cues for recalling the words and 10 of them
were asked to perform the free recall. It has been found that participants who were given
retrieval cues were more capable of recalling words compared to the participants who recalled
without cues. It has been concluded that retrieval cues possess the potential to enhance the
recalling ability o individual

Literature Review
The term retrieval cues can be defined as the stimuli that have the potential to assist in
memory retrieval. Several memories are stored as long term memories and individuals failed to
remain constantly are of the same. Retrieval can be defined as the process of assessing the
information which is stored in the long term memory with the help of specific retrieval cues, an
individual develops the capacity of taking out the memories out of storage and become
consciously aware of the same. Therefore it can be clearly understood that cued recall can be
defined as the retrieval of memories with the help of cues. On the other hand free recall takes
place when an individual is able to recall without the help of any cues. The rationale of this study
is to analyze the impact of retrial cues on the memory of individuals. In other words, the research
article aims to find out whether retrieval cues help people to recall information more easily
compared to free recall or not. In the following paragraphs, review of relevant literature has been
conducted in order to gain an in-depth knowledge of previous researches and the results
obtained.
According to Hirst et al. (2017), memory is defined as maintaining process information over
time. Memory can be defined involved in processing a vast amount of information that is in
different forms namely images, sounds or others. According to Rinaldi et al (2015), memory
covers three crucial aspects of information processing, namely, encoding, storage, and retrial.
When it comes to memory encoding, it is defined as changing the information into a form so that
it can be stored into one's memory. Chiefly three types of information can be used namely visual,
acoustic and semantic. Memory storage mainly concerns with the destination where the
information has been stored. The third aspect that is memory retrieval includes the process of
