Developmental Changes in the Effect of Verbal, Non-Verbal and Spatial-Positional Cues on Retention.
Derevensky, Jeffrey
Sixty kindergarten, 60 second-grade, and 60 fourth-grade students performed several memory tasks under one of six conditions. The conditions differed as to the method of presentation of information. The study was focused on developmental changes in children's use of verbal, nonverbal, and spatial-positional cues for memory. The results, in general, showed consistent trends suggestive of a developmental change in representational ability; such that younger children tend to rely on visual cues and older children tend to rely on verbal cues to retain information. Children in all grades performed better when both visual and verbal cues were available and demonstrated an ability to utilize spatial-positional cues for retention. (Author)
