The fan effect in overlapping data sets and logical inference

Abstract

This paper examines the fan effect in overlapping data sets and logical inference. Three experiments are presented. ACT-R models as well as alternative models are compared to the data. The results indicate that ACT-R provides the best fit to the data. However, issues are raised over how to define which data sets are used to determine the fan effect and the use of search strategies in this task.
