Information Memory Processing and Retrieval: Cultural Differences of Libyan and American Children in a Sorting and Piagetian Task.
Attashani, Abdulrazik; Pesenti, Roberto A.
Reported is a study related to a Project on an Information Memory Model in which the performance of children living in two different cultures (Libyan and American) was compared on two problem solving tasks to investigate cultural differences in memory information processing. One task was the chemical bodies experiment studied by Piaget and Inhelder and the other was a figural sorting task. The population in the study consisted of tenth-grade students (N=54/country). The Libyan sample consisted of 22 boys and 32 girls; the American, 27 boys and 27 girls. A total of 40 variables was studied. Data were analyzed using two-way analysis of variance and correlational procedures. When data were analyzed, the major conclusion appeared to be that the information memory flow of the students had attributable cultural differences when compared to Piagetian task performance and memory cognitions.
