Tutor description

Anagrams, a group of scrambled letters that can be rearranged to form a word, was investigated as a function of letter positioning on solving ability. Each subject received a sheet with 30 anagrams on it. One group received sheets with anagrams that contained scrambled letters in the middle but the first and last letters were in place.

AnagramsAbstractAnagrams, a group of scrambled letters that can be rearranged to form a word, was investigated as a function of letter positioning on solving ability. Each subject received a sheet with 30 anagrams on it. One group received sheets with anagrams that contained scrambled letters in the middle but the first and last letters were in place. The other group received sheets with anagrams that were fully scrambled. Both groups had 10 minutes to solve the anagrams. The results showed that the first group solved more anagrams with minimal variation and the second group solved fewer anagrams with greater variation. The results indicated that the order of the letters impacted the amount of anagrams solved and the level of variation between groups. Effect of Fully-Scrambled Words vs. Partially Scrambled Words on the Number of Correct ResponsesAnagrams are a group of scrambled letters that can be rearranged to form a word. Much research has been conducted on the topic of peoples ability to unscramble letters and form words. Johnson (1966) researched ability to unscramble anagrams. He found several important factors that affect ones ability to unscramble an anagram
