Does Highlighting Actually Help?Behavioral and Social Sciences
- MariAnn Slater
"1. n this experiment I am going to be testing whether highlighting phrases encourages memory retention more than when the phrases are not highlighted. 2. I wanted to do this experiment because I would like to help others that may or may not have known the results of my experiment, and I was also just intrigued in this experiment myself 3.The results for this experiment showed that after averaging my 76 trials it proved that highlighting helped people remember better with an average of 3.9 correct, whereas the non highlighted parts only got 1.7 correct. 4. I believe my experiment will help others out with their studies and how they perform on tests, quizzes, notes etc. "
