Convolution Forgetting Curve Model for Repeated Learning

01/19/2019 ∙ by Yanlu Xie, et al. ∙ 0

Most of mathematic forgetting curve models fit well with the forgetting data under the learning condition of one time rather than repeated. In the paper, a convolution model of forgetting curve is proposed to simulate the memory process during learning. In this model, the memory ability (i.e. the central procedure in the working memory model) and learning material (i.e. the input in the working memory model) is regarded as the system function and the input function, respectively. The status of forgetting (i.e. the output in the working memory model) is regarded as output function or the convolution result of the memory ability and learning material. The model is applied to simulate the forgetting curves in different situations. The results show that the model is able to simulate the forgetting curves not only in one time learning condition but also in multi-times condition. The model is further verified in the experiments of Mandarin tone learning for Japanese learners. And the predicted curve fits well on the test points.
