Daneman, M., & Carpenter, P. A. (). Individual Differences in Working Memory and Reading. Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, 19, Daneman and Carpenter () developed a measure of WM capacity which required both processing and storage in WM. The task was really two tasks. Daneman and Carpenter (, Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, 19, –) developed a measure of working memory capacity, the reading.

Individual Differences in Working Memory and Reading. A reading-span task variant implemented using flash. This study tested which of two crucial mechanisms of working memory WM: By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Phonological similarity effects in verbal complex span. Developing L2 oral proficiency through synchronous CMC: With each sentence presented on a card, participants were cued to recall the memorized end-of-sentence words in their original order by a blank card at the end of a series.

The number of sentences of a series was incrementally increased until a participant’s reading span, or the maximum number of final words correctly recalled, was found. Journal of Experimental Psychology: Views Read Edit View history. In the second study, a variant of another attention control test, the Stroop task, was applied, which minimized the load on capacity, and no significant contribution of this task to Gf was found.

Neuropsychology21 5 Learning, Memory, and Cognition16— An evaluation using Japanese version of reading span test. The original RST required participants to read series of unconnected sentences aloud and to remember the final word of each sentence of a series grouped according to the total number of sentences.

Simple and complex word spans as measures of working memory capacity. Thus, when caprenter of control and capacity were unconfounded, attention control mechanisms of WM contributed to fluid intelligence to a lesser extent than did the mechanisms related to the active buffer of WM. Brain and Cognition451— Languages Magyar Edit links.

The cadpenter span task RST is a common memory span task widely cited in, and adapted for, investigations of working memorycognitive processingand reading comprehension that was first published by Meredyth Daneman and Patricia Carpenter in Besides the “listening span” variant also developed by Daneman and Carpenter, [1] several variants have been developed in recent years based upon the RST.
