R Dataset / Package Stat2Data / WordMemory
On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the WordMemory data set which pertains to WordMemory. The WordMemory data set is found in the Stat2Data R package. Try to load the WordMemory data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("WordMemory"). This may load the data into a variable called WordMemory. If R says the WordMemory data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("Stat2Data") and then attempt to reload the data with library("Stat2Data") followed by data("WordMemory"). Perhaps strangley, if R gives you no output after entering a command, it means the command succeeded. If it succeeded you can see the data by typing WordMemory at the command-line which should display the entire dataset.
If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the WordMemory R data set. The size of this file is about 762 bytes.
Percentage of different types of words recalled
A dataset with 40 observations on the following 4 variables.
One hundred words were presented to each subject in a randomized order. The goal of the experiment was to see whether some kinds of words were easier to remember than others. In particular, are common words like potato, love, diet, and magazine easier to remember than less common words like manatee, hangnail, fillip, and apostasy? Are concrete words like coffee, dog, kale, and tamborine easier than abstract words like beauty, sympathy, fauna, and guile? There were 25 words each of four kinds, obtained by crossing the two factors of interest, Abstraction (concrete or abstract) and Frequency (common or rare).
Data from a student laboratory project, Department of Psychology and Education, Mount Holyoke College.
