's (2002) study on source monitoring, described earlier. By computing estimates of the source-discrimination parameter for each patient, they were able to examine the correlations between source memory and a battery of different diagnostic tests.
D. from some joint distribution on Q. One convenient joint distribution to use is characterized by independent beta distributions on each of the S parameters (cf. Batchelder, 1998). In fact, this is the assumption of parame42 BATCHELDER AND R1EFER ter variability represented in the simulation option of Hu's software for analyzing MPT models discussed earlier. Now we are in a position to formulate this parameter variability assumption into an explicit hierarchical MPT model rather than just a simulation option.
Parameter u is the probability that a single item is stored and retrieved, given that it was not clustered. Basically, parameters c and r constitute the model's measures of storage and retrieval, respectively, whereas u is an ancillary parameter that combines both storage and retrieval processes. According to the model, successful cluster storage and retrieval result in both items of the pair being recalled consecutively (Ci). If a pair is clustered and stored in memory but not retrieved, with the probability c(l - r), then neither item is recalled (C4).
