Mnemonic abilities and acquisition of knowledge in school

Memory as a component of man's general abilities is assumed to have a hierarchical structure; some levels at that represent rather a "pure" imprinting capacity while others pertain to meaningful procession of information. It has been experimentally shown that both kinds of mnemonic ability are needed for efficient learning, and differences between good and poor pupils must not be reduced to differences in the memory for meaningful information. However specific proportion of the two varies depending on a particular subject to be learned.
