Abstract : In 1952 Miller and McGill proposed a model for free recall verbal learning which describes a subject by three parameters, a initial probability of recall p, a learning rate parameter gamma, and a learning asymptote lambda. (See also Bush and Mosteller (1955) for a discussion of this model). Ten years later Lorge and Solomon (1962) used the Miller-McGill model to study the relation between group performance and the performance of the individuals which comprise the group. During the course of their investigation (Lorge and Solomon (1962)), a question arose as to the significance of differences between some estimated group gamma's and products of the estimated individual gamma's. The present paper is essentially an outgrowth of this question. (Author)
