- stabilization curve
- shows the dependence of stabilization on retrievability.
- The formula for the stabilization curve:
SInc- stabilization (aka stability increase) is the ratio of memory stability after and before the repetition
SIncMax- maximum possible increase in memory stability.
SIncMaxdepends on current stability and memory complexity (i.e. item difficulty). Maximum stabilization can be achieved at the verge of forgetting
Gain- a constant that expresses the gain in stabilization with passing time (gain is a measure of the spacing effect)
R- retrievability, i.e. the expected probability of recall at a given point in time. It is determined by the forgetting curve
