"The primary purpose of this volume is to bring together contributions by some of the most significant contemporary experimental psychologists working in cognition, including the areas of learning, memory, information processing, discourse, and knowledge representation. They share their perspectives and their recent research findings so that these ideas and results can be integrated for use by practitioners in the field, including those in training, education, and testing. Such integration should also be of value to students and other researchers concerned with the core issues of human cognition. A secondary purpose of this volume is to serve as a triple Festschrift in honor of three distinguished faculty members from the University of Colorado (CU) who are recently retired from teaching at the university: Lyle Bourne, Jr., Walter Kintsch, and Thomas Landauer. All three of these individuals throughout their careers have done basic research on a wide range of topics in experimental cognitive psychology. In recent years all three have made important contributions to the understanding of learning, memory, information processing, discourse, and knowledge representation, and findings from these studies have direct practical implications for training, education, and testing. Overall, the study of cognition has experienced rapid growth in the last decade. This topic is fundamental both to the science of psychology and to its applications to real-world problems. However, there has traditionally been a huge gap between the basic research findings in this area and practice in the field. There, thus, remains a crucial need to bridge from the laboratory to the real world. This volume brings together individuals who not only have a distinguished record as experimental psychologists but also have tried to show how their findings can be applied in the field"--Preface.
