Individual Differences in Memory and Information Processing.
Lunneborg, Clifford E.
Following a review of recent research in the University of Washington Department of Psychology project, Individual Differences in Cognition, analyses are reported linking performance in laboratory studies of cognition to performance on selected psychometric instruments. Intent of the study was to provide an empirical followup of Carrolls's (1974) careful analysis of the information processing requirements of tests of cognitive factors. The results provide general support for Carroll's conclusions and suggest that a resolution of the long standing psychometric question of whether aptitudes or achievements are being assessed can be realized through studies designed to survey individual differences in current information processing capabilities.
