Short Term Visual Memory in Five- and Six-Year-Old Children: Some Cognitive and Academic Correlates.
Carroll, James L.
This paper presents a review of research in which correlations between short term visual memory and reading achievement have been found. Included is a table summarizing the major research which made use of commercially available tests of short term visual memory suitable for use with children 8-years of age and older. The researcher, tests used, subject characteristics, and results are given for each experiment. Research relating to the development of a motor-free, multiple-choice visual memory scale, which eliminates the developmental biases of the commercial tests and is, therefore, suitable for 5-, and 6-year-olds, is described in greater detail. Several experiments are described which sought to remediate visual memory problems through visual mnemonic devices and visual memory training. It is concluded that a great deal more research in these areas is necessary. (ED)
