Letter series completion problems varying along location of irrelevant relations (beginning, end, none) were presented to 24 Ss. A repeated-measures analysis of solution times and errors revealed that irrelevant relations at the beginning of series produced the longest latencies and the most errors. Using a pattern induction/sequence production model of serial processing, an error analysis showed production error rate remained constant across treatments, while pattern induction errors varied… CONTINUE READING
