2) The slower serial indexing system to access semantic memory is defined as what?

  2. Nested chunk
  3. Recognition memory
  4. Short-term memory
3) The relatively quicker and "smart link" to semantic information developed by expert or experienced problem solvers is an example of what?

1) The decision-making step, usually the final step before the decision is made, in which a person has to use judgment to solve an ill-defined problem is known as gut feeling. (True)

2) Short-term memory acts as a filter between the task environment and the human problem-solving system. (True)

3) The language interpreter is a component of short-term memory responsible for understanding the problem. (True)

4) A component of long-term memory responsible for the problem-solving function is known as problem-space. (False) (Short-term memory)

5) An error in human judgment that make people make regularly, resulting from the limitations of the two-stage human information processing system is known as a bias. (False) (Systematic error)
