Does listening to music help civilization perdevelop better on memory tests?


Adam and also Eli (after doing research) assumed that listening to music would certainly assist civilization perdevelop much better on memory tests.



Preparing the tests

We talked a lot around what kind of test to use. We determined a list of numbers through 2 digits each. The list was backwards for the second test. The numbers from the two tests are as complies with. The 2 tests are attached as well.
Four subjects were offered two tests to memorize nine numbers in a row.They had three minutes to memorize the numbers each time.During the first test there was no music.For the second test Banda music was playing.

Procedure (Detailed)

This variation is an extra thorough procedure that the student prepared in conjuction with teaching assistant Marianne Levy.

Make a list of nine 2-digit numbers in braille and print. (See Test 1)Prepare the list in backwards order. (See Test 2)Make print and also braille copies of each for the students.Give each student 3 minutes to quietly examine Test 1.Have students write dvery own as many kind of numbers in order from Test 1 as he or she remembers. This might also be completed orally.Students will examine Test 2 while listening to Banda music on the computer for 3 minutes.Have students write dvery own as many kind of numbers from Test 2 in order as he or she remembers. This may also be completed orally.Analyze the information and also attract a conclusion.


On test 1 the average was 1.25 numbers out of 9 were appropriately remembered.On test 2 the average was 3.25 numbers out of 9 were effectively remembered.

Plan and conduct an examination individually and collaboratively to create data to serve as the basis for proof, and in the design: decide on forms, just how a lot, and accuracy of data necessary to create reliable measurements and also consider limitations on the precision of the data (e.g., number of trials, cost, hazard, time), and refine the design appropriately.
