Chapter 4: Human Learning
Failure to retain material because of interfering effects of similar material learned AFTER the learning task.
Elimination of unnecessary clutter and a clearing of the way for more material to enter the cognitive field.
Native Language Forgetting
Happens where learners rely more and more on a second language
Research on Language Attrition
Probable causes of loss of second language: some aspects of language are more vulnerable to forgetting.
Analyzed human behavior in general, including the learning processes
Implications for education:
Goal of facilitation of change and learning in education
Learning how to learn is most important
Trust in students - in moderation
Freedom v. Competitiveness
Types of Learning
Signal Learning - Pavlov's Dog
Stimulus - Response
Terms Describing Interaction of Previous Learning with Present Event
Innate or Nurtured?
Does age matter?
Can it be reliably measured?
Predictive of Success?
Characteristics of Successful Language Learners
Risk - Taking Behavior

Decline of these forms of assessment due to limitations
Resurgence of interest in language aptitude tests
