- This study is to investigate the relationship between relevant information and activation of schema. The participants in this study all come from the school of the author. In order to follow the ethical guideline of keeping the participants anonymous, the author did not mention the name of the school. The author replicated the study of Bransford and Johnson , which was used to test out the schema theory in 1972. The result in this study was that relevant information can activate schema which assist information processing. The author used the same tools as the original study but the result is opposite that exposing relevant information to participants does not have a positive correlation with better efficiency of information processing. However, the limitation of the research method needs to be considered in order to examine the validity of the result.
